Omen for Huntsman in Brady-Tebow duel?
There was a twist on the Tim Tebow relationship with the presidential race on Sunday.
As for whether the Florida native really loves the Boston-area team? The wife of the former Utah governor and Chinese ambassador was diplomatic: “We’re spending so much time in New England that I’ve grown to love New England.”
It was a smart way to placate voters, who were asked to attend the town hall at a local high school during the Patriots’ big game against Tebow’s Denver Broncos.
Huntsman even joked that his wife wasn’t pandering to the New Hampshire audience.
It also let Huntsman take an indirect swipe at Texas Government Rick Perry, one of his rivals in the race for the Republican nomination.
In Thursday’s debate in Iowa, Perry likened himself to the Broncos’ young evangelical quarterback.
Huntsman may hope Mary Kaye’s shirt is an omen for the same success in the nomination fight that Brady had in the field.
Brady’s Patriots beat Tebow’s Broncos — 41 to 23.
