Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman is taking aim at Texas Rep. Ron Paul over what his campaign is calling his “racist and homophobic” newsletters.
Using a web video to draw attention to the newsletters, Huntsman’s campaign asks, “Can New Hampshire voters really trust Ron Paul?”
Paul has distanced himself from the more provocative statements in the newsletters which were titled with his name, saying he did not author them — someone else did.
The video comes as Huntsman is placing all his hopes in the Granite State, and Paul clearly stands in the way.
Polls still show Huntsman lagging behind former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and Paul in New Hampshire.
