Jon Huntsman Jr. may have purged his website and multimedia channels of any hard-hitting attacks on Mitt Romney before he turned around and endorsed him Monday. But some promise to live on courtesy of Democrats, who never miss an opportunity to jab at the man they've long viewed as the likeliest Republican nominee.
On Monday afternoon, the Democratic National Committee began circulating a video that has a choice selection of the Republican-on-Republican combat.
In one segment, Huntsman questions Romney's electability, accusing him of "pandering," and attacking him over his recent remark about "firing people."
"209 days later. It's all still true," the ad concludes.
Huntsman attack websites, ScaredMittless2012.com and 10kbet.com, now redirect to Yahoo's home page. Videos targeting Romney on Huntsman's YouTube channel are gone.
Romney, meanwhile, tweeted this afternoon: "I salute Jon Huntsman & his wife Mary Kaye. He ran a campaign based on unity not division, & love of country. I appreciate his support."
