Jon Huntsman: Regime Change, Inc.’s Favoured Third Party Presidential Candidate?

leave a comment »

Regime Change, Inc. has come home to America — and they’ve just hinted who they’d like to be their presidential candidate in 2012.

Former New Jersey Gov. Christie Todd Whitman, who is leading a group to draft a third-party presidential candidate, is encouraging Jon Huntsman to make an independent bid for the White House.

The group is Americans Elect backed by multi-millionaire Peter Ackerman, whom I’ve written about as “The Junk Bond ‘Teflon Guy’ Behind Egypt’s Nonviolent Revolution.”

Ackerman is a veritable pauper, however, by comparison with one of Huntsman’s other backers. As Jeff Zeleny wrote on June 22 in the New York Times:

Jon M. Huntsman Jr. opened his day on Tuesday by formally declaring his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination. He closed it by accomplishing an equally important task: collecting $1.2 million for his campaign.

A dinner in Manhattan, hosted by Lynn Forester de Rothschild, was the venue to kickoff Mr. Huntsman’s fund-raising effort. It was the first stop in a weeklong fund-raising sprint, as Mr. Huntsman tries to catch up with the rest of the Republican presidential field that is locked in a cutthroat scramble to sign up high-dollar donors.

Lynn Forester de Rothschild is the chief executive officer of E.L. Rothschild, a holding company she owns with her husband, Sir Evelyn Robert de Rothschild, a member of the Rothschild banking family. The company manages investments in The Economist Group, owner of The Economist magazine, as well as real estate, agricultural and food interests.
