A virtual unknown, one of his greatest challenges has been getting his name out there. He has had little media coverage compared to the leading candidates, Mitt Romney, John McCain, and Mike Huckabee.
In the first few contests of the race for the nomination,
Hunter’s lack of name recognition and small campaign size was apparent. He seems to have barely made an impression on voters thus far. In the Iowa Caucuses on January 3, 2008, he received less than 1 percent of the vote. Two days later in Wyoming, Hunter came in third with 8 percent. But the hot-contested New Hampshire Primaries, he finished last with only 1 percent. Michigan was another sad story for Hunter - less than 1 percent again. He withdrew his bid in January 2008 and endorsed Mike Huckabee.
