After Gen X flop, Huntsman launches ‘GenH’ initiative with Jeb Bush Jr.by George Bennett | September 15th, 2011
Now Huntsman is launching an appeal for 18- to 35-year-old “GenH” voters with Jeb Bush Jr. as chairman.
Huntsman’s campaign today announced the GenH program has 139 campus chapters in 42 states and is “the most broad-based youth program in the Republican field.”During a discussion of Social Security in Monday’s CNN/Tea Party Express debate, Huntsman mentioned rival Mitt Romney‘s 2010 book No Apology and quipped: “I don’t know if that was written by Kurt Cobain or not.”
The allusion to All Apologies, a Cobain-penned song that charted for Nirvana in 1993, did not seem to register with the other GOP candidates or the tea party audience.
Grunge icon Cobain died in an apparent suicide in 1994, the year Romney ran as a moderate Republican against Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy in Massachusetts.
