WASHINGTON—Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman is calling the Republican presidential race a contest of "extraordinary ambiguity," and says he's not giving up.

Huntsman didn't campaign actively in Iowa, and he finished in last place in Tuesday's GOP precinct caucuses. But he says the fact that the vote was so divided among Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Ron Paul bodes well for others still in the race, as the Jan. 10 New Hampshire primary approaches.

Huntsman calls Iowa a "kind of jumbled-up outcome." He tells CBS, "Who would have guessed that Rick Santorum tooling around in his pickup truck would have gone from nowhere to practically winning the Iowa caucus."

He says, `Look how much blue sky there is for the rest of the field. This is an open race."
