Huntsman Becomes Third To Qualify For GOP Primary Ballot

Former U.S. ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman Jr. qualified for the Republican primary ballot on Monday, joining Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox and ex-GOP chair Thomas Wright.  Huntsman made the cut hours before the deadline after the coronavirus crisis made the typical strategy of knocking on doors to gather signatures impossible. Candidates can also qualify by convincing party delegates at the GOP convention later this month. Ex-House Speaker Greg Hughes, businessman Jeff Burningham and Salt Lake County Councilwoman Aimee Winder Newton are among the candidates also vying for the Republican nomination.
