GOP presidential debate number 11 has come and gone. The CNN National Security Debate last night was held just steps from the White House, and each candidate argued that they could be doing a better job than President Obama.

So who stood out? Who stumbled? And will this moment prove to be a game changer? Carol Costello speaks with Republican Strategist Karen Hanerty and CNN contributor David Frum to get their take.

Huntsman: 'Failure is not an option' in New Hampshire

Former Utah Governor and 2012 GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman is trailing badly in the latest polls. But he has some credentials his fellow GOP competitors can't match. 

Huntsman has significant foreign policy experience; he once worked in the Obama administration as the U.S. ambassador to China.  And he had the chance to show off his foreign policy chops in last night's CNN national security debate.

Today on American Morning, Jon Huntsman talked with Carol Costello about why GOP primary voters are giving him a second look and why he believes a failure to win in New Hampshire "is not an option." He also addressed questions about whether his father contributed any money to a superpac for campaign ads in New Hampshire.
