McCain gets key support in Utah
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. John McCain picked up key support in Utah Thursday, as the Arizona Republican continues to mull a potential presidential run.

McCain announced Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman and Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff have pledged to fully support him if he decides to throw his hat in the 2008 presidential race. Huntsman will serve as the national co-chairman of McCain's presidential exploratory committee and Shurtleff will head up McCain's Utah chapter.

Having formed the presidential exploratory committee last month, McCain has said he will decide on a formal run after the Holidays.
