Thomas Burr and Matt Canham talked about their book, Mormon Rivals: The Romneys, the Huntsmans and the Pursuit of Power, about the family friendship and eventual falling out between the Romneys and the Huntsmans, two of the founding families of the Mormon church. The authors state that Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman, whose fathers were friends, were political allies and Mormon brothers-in-arms until Governor Huntsman failed to support Governor Romney in the latter’s run for president in 2008. close
