Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN)
– Former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge will endorse Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman at St. Anselm College in New Hampshire Friday.

Ridge served as governor of Pennsylvania and was the first person to head the Department of Homeland Security. He chose to endorse Huntsman because of the presidential hopeful’s experience internationally and in the public and private sectors, according to a campaign source.

Since announcing his candidacy in late June, Huntsman has struggled to gain traction in national polls. He has set his sights on winning New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary, and has spent much of September campaigning in the state.

He announced his jobs plan in Hudson, New Hampshire Aug. 31.

Interesting, on Tom Ridge endorsing Jon Huntsman. And, I didn't know Huntsman was aiming to win NH. Tough haul that, what with it being a kind of 'home state' for Romney.
