Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman said he views the U.S. government as more divided and dysfunctional than at any point in the country's history and that America deserves better.
"I'm downright embarrassed with where we are as a nation and what we're about to pass on to the next generation," Huntsman said Wednesday. "So we have a choice as citizens and public elected officials to stand on the sidelines and watch it play out or step up and do something about it."
The former governor's comments came during a conference call with more than 63,000 participants, hosted by the group No Labels, a reform group founded by Republican and Democratic campaign veterans seeking to mobilize centrist voters and bipartisan solutions to the nation's problems.
