Huntsman 'About To Announce'

Only in the social media age can this sort of thing happen:

"About to announce my candidacy for president of the United States. Watch live at www.Jon2012.com and please RT #Jon2012," former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman just tweeted.

And his jon2012.com website is now up and running.

So, the Republican has announced that he's about to announce something that we all knew he was going to announce.

We'll update with highlights of what he has to say. The event is supposed to get going at 10 a.m. ET. He'll be at the Statue of Liberty.
