Jon Huntsman Set To End Presidential Run, Endorse Romney

A move that will help Romney in South Carolina...
Jon Huntsman is set to end his run for President and endorse Mitt Romney on Monday, a somewhat surprising move since he vowed after New Hampshire to continue on.
While this is purely speculation, I'd guess the Romney campaign got into Huntsman's ear with some promises. His departure greatly helps Romney in South Carolina, because Huntsman's moderate votes will almost all go directly to Romney in the state. A win in SC would basically wrap the nomination up for Romney.
