Huntsman Campaign Launch Begins Day with Misspelling of His Own Name

ABC News' Sarah Kunin (@Sarah_Kunin) reports:

Every detail of Jon Huntsman’s long-awaited campaign launch was meticulously planned, except of course for one minor detail: the misspelling of the candidate’s name.

Members of the media were handed a press pass that read “John Huntsman for President"  — adding an unnecessary H in the candidate's first name.

Huntsman’s staffers promptly scrambled to remove the passes from reporters before they caught the snafu. Today’s campaign kickoff at Liberty State Park is a nod to Ronald Reagan, who used the Statue of Liberty backdrop to launch his 1980 general election campaign.
