Asked about the two Mormons in the presidential race, Reid stunned the Capitol Hill press corps by providing a detailed answer, and picking his favorite White House hopeful.

On Wednesday, the Las Vegas Sun noted why Reid has a soft spot for Huntsman: Members of Huntsman’s family have donated nearly $25,000 to the majority leader.
