Abby Huntsman Reveals Her Dad ‘Cringes’ Over Clip Of Himself Introducing Palin

Abby Huntsman, sitting in as part of Starting Point‘s panel Tuesday morning, offered a little insight regarding her father Jon Huntsman‘s thoughts on former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

She admitted that her father “cringes” whenever he watches the clip of himself rather hoarsely introducing the “history-making” Palin just four short years ago. “Yes,” she said, “that’s one of his least favorite clips.” In fact, she continued, that marked one of the first and last times he’s ever mentioned Palin.

She also spoke a bit about his decision to skip this year’s GOP convention due to his “frustration” with the party, adding that he is arguably “the most conservative governor of the reddest state in the country.” He remains a committed conservative, she said, albeit a “modern-day Republican” in terms of social issues. And, what’s more, she continued, more and more Republicans will see things his way.
