Tom Ingram — Huntsman Debate Coach

Tennessee political consultant Tom Ingram, who is in New Hampshire helping GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman, tells Georgiana Vines, “”A day’s a lifetime up here.”
Huntsman, who did not compete in Iowa caucuses earlier in the week, is banking a lot on New Hampshire. He has been running low in national polls, although in New Hampshire he’s done better. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney continues to be the leader.
“We’ve put a lot into New Hampshire. We’ve spent more time than any other candidate,” Ingram said.
Ingram has been assisting Huntsman, a former Utah governor and U.S. ambassador, for months but his duties have changed since he began his part-time relationship with the presidential aspirant. At first he was to work with the media team, but they moved to Huntsman’s political action committee, Our Destiny PAC.
“It can raise money with different limitations but cannot coordinate with the (official) campaign,” Ingram said.
Among his duties is “being part of the prep debate team,” Ingram said. Two debates with all GOP candidates are scheduled this weekend — on ABC at Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire at 9 p.m. today and “Meet the Press” on NBC at 9 a.m. Sunday.
