Salt Lake City, UT – In the days since Governor Jon Huntsman announced he'll resign to become U.S. Ambassador to China, the spotlight has been on his lieutenant governor, Gary Herbert. At 62, Herbert is a native of American Fork, a former real estate broker who sat on the Utah County Commission for 14 years. He tells KUER's Jennifer Napier-Pearce, like many Utahns, he's a mainstream conservative.
