MANCHESTER - Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman (R) was back in New Hampshire today while on a trail - but it isn't to announce a candidacy for president.
Instead, Hunstman has started as a leading speaker for No Labels - an advocacy group that says it's trying to unite Democrats, Republicans and Independents to fight for issues.
Hunstman joined a town hall-styled event at Manchester Community College where he spoke and and took questions from NH voters.
"They take their politics seriously," Huntsman said about the voters. "They know that they're a safeguard for this Republic of ours, and they question the candidates."
Those who attended said they enjoyed listening to Huntsman.
"It seems like they have to choose things that are manageable and doable, and not take off - bite off more than they can chew," said Linda Rockenmacher, who said she supports No Labels.
Funding for the organization has been brought to question, however.
The group - listed as a 501c(4) organization - can accept private donations and does not have to release the name of those donors to the public.
"Nobody stands to gain anything from our success," Hunstman said about the funding. "It's not like we're fronting for a bunch of special interest issues."
