Campaign manager for GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman resigns
WASHINGTON (AP) ' Republican presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman's campaign manager has resigned and is being replaced by a former top aide to California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The former Utah governor's presidential campaign says in a statement Thursday that campaign manager Susie Wiles is leaving the campaign. Her replacement, Matt David, has served as the campaign's communications director.
Huntsman previously served as President Barack Obama's ambassador to China. He formally entered the presidential race a month ago and has raised more than $4 million for the campaign, with about half of it coming from his personal wealth. But the campaign has struggled to gain traction as Huntsman has trailed many GOP rivals in polls.
Wiles' resignation was first reported by The Washington Post.
