SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – U.S. Ambassador to Russia, Jon Huntsman, Jr., hasn’t ruled out a run for Utah’s next governor.

A source told the Deseret News Huntsman could be a candidate in 2020.

Huntsman had no comment, though, saying there is “nothing to consider until our current commitment is done.”

If he runs, it would mark his third run for the governor after he won the office in 2004 and was re-elected in 2008.
