Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. said Tuesday he's ready to hit the campaign trail for his one-time rival for the GOP presidential nomination, Mitt Romney.

"I see him as the best of the options we have available," Huntsman said of Romney in a wide-ranging interview with the Deseret News and KSL-TV. When asked about the strength of his support, Huntsman said he saw his comment "as a ringing endorsement."

Romney, he said again, is "the best we have out there. We have a choice at the end of the day and he's my choice. I think he's the best equipped by far to deal with the economic issues and challenges that confront us."
