It turns out former Utah Governor and Republican presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman is counting on more that his background and experience as he seeks the GOP nomination this year. Huntsman also has a souvenir from the trail that he and his wife are hoping will bring him luck in the upcoming New Hampshire primary, and it is none other than a Politics & Eggs wooden egg! As Bedford Patch.com reported this week:
If you have any doubt where Jon Huntsman’s focus is, look no farther than his wife Mary Kaye’s purse.
There, you’ll find a wooden egg with the initials J.H. and M.K.H. written on the bottom.
“It’s our good luck charm,” said the glowing First Lady hopeful.
Mary Kaye said she’s held on to the keepsake since picking one up when her husband spoke at a Politics and Eggs breakfast at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College in Manchester on Sept. 1.
Of course, it remains to be seen how lucky that little wooden egg will turn out to be next Tuesday, but we’re happy to know that their visit to Politics & Eggs is one that the Huntsman’s won’t soon forget!
