Jon Huntsman to speak at UW commencement

Jon Huntsman, the former ambassador to China and Republican candidate for president in 2012, will be the speaker at the University of Washington’s commencement June 15.

Huntsman was elected governor of Utah in 2004, and appointed ambassador to China by President Obama in 2009. He resigned to seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2011, but after a poor showing in the early primary states, he left the race and endorsed Mitt Romney, who eventually became the GOP nominee.

Huntsman currently serves on several corporate boards, is a distinguished fellow at the Brookings Institute and a visiting fellow at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.

Commencement will take place at CenturyLink Field at 1:30 p.m. The UW estimates it will award more than 12,000 degrees, and the audience is expected to number about 40,000.
