Perhaps snatching public relations defeat from the jaws of a potential Iowa victory, Texas Congressman Ron Paul’s verified Twitter account caused quite a distraction tonight by posting the following about Republican rival and former U.S. Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman.
@jonhuntsman we found your one Iowa voter, he’s in Linn precinct 5 you might want to call him and say thanks
Huntsman is sitting out the Iowa caucuses and setting his sights on next week’s New Hampshire primary.
We first learned about this on the social network Google+ from a post by popular user Linda Lawrey who has over 340,000 followers.
Shortly after Lawrey’s post the Paul campaign deleted the Tweet. Then a few minutes later it was posted again.
No official word yet from the Paul or Huntsman campaigns.
