Thursday night the Florida Times-Union reported that Susie Wiles, a political adviser who helped Rick Scott capture Florida's gubernatorial election, is now on board to head a de facto "Friends of Jon Huntsman" political action committee that's ostensibly paving the way for a potential presidential bid by Huntsman.
Wiles told the Times-Union Thursday night that she's signed on as the new executive director of a political action committee formed by supporters of former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. Huntsman, the current U.S. Ambassador to China, is rumored to be considering a run for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination.
The Times-Union article links to a Washington Post piece detailing Huntsman's inner circle , which is heavy on veterans of Sen. John McCain's failed 2008 presidential bid.
