One possible White House hopeful, Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. (R), wouldn’t criticize the stimulus despite his red state bona fides. He said that the federal money would fund infrastructure projects that could help the Beehive State’s economy.
“You have to have a party that is results oriented, that actually develops solutions to some of our nagging problems of today,” he said.
He said that Republicans who turn to “gratuitous rhetoric” will continue to lose.
