Charter school benefits from Huntsman focus on NH

PEMBROKE, N.H. (AP) -- Students at a Pembroke, N.H., charter school are getting a lesson in politics from Republican presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman.

The former Utah governor is visiting the Strong Foundations charter school Tuesday to distribute iPads the school recently purchased at a discount from a Utah company called iSchool Campus. The company offered 200 iPads plus computers and a new wireless network to the school in part because it wanted to capitalize on publicity generated by Huntsman's presidential campaign. The company's founder has donated $2,000 to Huntsman's campaign.

Huntsman, who is skipping Tuesday's Iowa caucus, is counting on a strong finish in New Hampshire's Jan. 10 primary to keep his campaign afloat.
