The largest newspaper in the state Mitt Romney once governed has endorsed former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman in the lead-up to the New Hampshire primary.

Here are the key excerpts from the Boston Globe editorial, “For vision and national unity, Huntsman for GOP nominee“:

He has stood up far more forcefully than Romney against those in his party who reject evolution and the science behind global warming …

Strong economic growth put Utah in the top five in job creation during Huntsman’s tenure, while he gave tax credits to companies developing solar energy. He … joined the Western Climate Initiative, which set goals for reducing greenhouse gases.

Of course, even Huntsman has waffled at times. But nowhere near as consistently (inconsistently?) as Mitt has waffled.
