Tweet of the day: Jon 2012 Girls looking to 2016

(CNN) – They are the media-genic daughters of one-time presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman: known collectively by their handle on Twitter, @Jon2012Girls.

And now, two months after their father dropped out of the GOP field, they're looking toward the next presidential season.

"Finally! All three girls are on their own," a tweet from their group account read, with links to their individual profiles. "#Jon2016women," their post continued.

What could they be looking to in 2016? Huntsman, of Utah, was formerly governor of his state - and gubernatorial elections coincide with mid-term elections. (His former lieutenant governor is currently the state's governor.) First term Sen. Mike Lee is up for re-election, but he, like Huntsman, is a Republican. Could it be another presidential bid?

One of the trio, Liddy Huntsman, posted an update on her own page: "Final departure song for the @jon2012girls...@britneyspears "I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman" #2016wewillbewomen. "

    Ha. If Jon Huntsman wants a political career come 2016, he'll have dp it as a Democrat. He'll lose any GOP primary he enters. He couldn't even get re-elected Governer of Utah now. He's been "tainted" by Obama.

    Go away girls; your 15 minutes of fame are over. Now you just look like pathetic wannabes who can't let go.

    I see Willard's imposters are at it again (see above).

    Neither Jon or his daughters will EVER impress me and I'm glad he dropped out.
