GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman on Daniel Island

DANIEL ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman was on Daniel Island Thursday morning as part of his "Country First" tour.

The former Utah governor and ambassador to China spoke with voters at the Honeycomb Cafe.

He stressed the importance of fixing the economy and working to create a better government. Huntsman says the government lacks leadership and that he's the candidate who can put the country back on track

"Ladies and gentlemen we need leadership, we need a plan we need confidence. I want to take us there but I need you, but beyond that I ask for your trust," Huntsman said.

Huntsman has an uphill battle here in South Carolina as the latest polls show him near the bottom of the pack.
