Harry Reid on GOP 2012 Primary: Huntsman Over Romney

ABC News' Sunlen Miller ( @sunlenmiller ) reports:

As Jon Huntsman formally announced his bid for president Tuesday, he received an unsolicited endorsement - that he probably could do better without in the Republican nomination - from Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

“In that race, if I had a choice I would favor Huntsman over Romney,” Reid said today talking 2012 politics to reporters at the Ohio Clock stakeout.

But Reid doesn’t have a choice in the Republican primary. Regardless, that didn’t stop the Democratic Majority leader from unleashing on why he believes the former governor of Massachusetts is not cut out for the job of president.

“Here’s a man that doesn’t know who he is,” Reid said of Romney, “He was for gay marriage when he was governor, now he’s against it. He was for abortion when he was governor, now he’s against it. He was -- oh health care – we modeled our bill to a large degree on what he did in Massachusetts, and now he’s trying to run from that. If somebody doesn’t know who they are they shouldn’t be president of the United States.”
