Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN) - Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman will host his first town hall in New Hampshire next week as he continues to pour his energies into the first-in-the-nation primary state.
The question-and-answer format is the epitome of New Hampshire politicking, where primary voters pride themselves on their political knowledge and access to White House hopefuls.
Huntsman will take questions from voters on Sept. 13 in Henniker, the day after participating in a debate sponsored by CNN and the Tea Party Express in Florida.
"Town halls are a quintessential part of the primary process in New Hampshire," said spokesman Michael Levoff. "Governor Huntsman looks forward to answering voters' questions and sharing with them his record of leading Utah to number one in job creation and making the largest tax cuts in the state's history."
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has hosted a series of town halls across the state, and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Congressman Ron Paul have also begun to hold similar events themselves. Candidate and former Senator Rick Santorum also held his own town hall there in April.
