Huntsman's two pledges


Jon Huntsman explains why he won't sign any of the growing number of pledges.

"I don't sign pledges -- other than the Pledge of Allegiance and a pledge to my wife." Huntsman said.

He says he told [South Carolina Senator Jim] DeMint "You just have to understand that's where I come down."

DeMint has been one of the most rigid of all drafters, averring that he won't support any candidate who doesn't sign his Cut, Cap, and Balance pledge.
