Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN) - GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman will deliver a major foreign policy address in New Hampshire next Monday, days after Mitt Romney gives his own foreign policy speech.
The former Utah governor and U.S. ambassador to China will present his vision for U.S. foreign policy in a morning speech Oct. 10 at Southern New Hampshire University.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has announced he will give a foreign policy speech of his own Friday at The Citadel in South Carolina.
Huntsman is moving his campaign headquarters up to New Hampshire and has made winning the first-in-the-nation primary state the focal point of his campaign. State polls indicate he has increased his appeal among voters here, but Romney remains the overwhelming front-runner in the state.
The campaign is touting Huntsman's experience representing the U.S. abroad as unique among the GOP field.
"At a turbulent time on the world stage Gov. Huntsman is the only candidate in the race with hands-on foreign policy experience," said campaign spokesman Michael Levoff. "He will offer a visionary, modern and nimble foreign policy that will both make us safer and expand our economic interests, creating jobs here at home."
