Former Gov. Jon Huntsman tells MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program he’s not sure what to make of the claim that Gov. Chris Christie didn’t know that his staff intentionally caused traffic problems on the George Washington Bridge.
Huntsman told the program that most governors know what is going on in their offices.
“Everybody knows day in and day out what’s playing out in your state down to miniscule details. There’s something here that just doesn’t seem to connect fully in terms of how communication was handled and how the issues were put forward to the governor. I hope that part is clarified because I know how governor’s offices run,” Huntsman said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
As a 2012 GOP presidential candidate, Huntsman also added that Gov. Christie (R-N.J.) is an “impressive figure” and said he would make a “great candidate” for the presidency. Before the bridge scheme unraveled last week, Christie had been considered a front-runner among potential contenders for the 2016 presidential race.
