Pawlenty to Announce Run for President
LA Times – Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty plans to formally announce his Republican candidacy for president in Iowa on Monday, a campaign aide confirmed Friday.
The announcement will come during a town hall meeting in the lead-off caucus state. His wife will introduce him at the event at the State of Iowa Historical Building.
Following his kickoff event Monday, Pawlenty will participate in a Facebook town hall meeting on Tuesday in Florida, which is angling to be among the first crop of nominating states. He’ll also speak in Washington on Wednesday at the Cato Institute.
