"Pawlenty to file exploratory committee today"
Pawlenty to file exploratory committee today
March 21, 2011

Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty will file paperwork today to organize his bid for the White House into an exploratory committee, he told supporters on a conference call today.

The bid, to be announced on Facebook later today, will be headquartered in the Twin Cities.

An aide, Phil Musser, asked donors to wait until April 1 to contribute to Pawlenty's campaign, in order to avoid the impression that he'd tried and failed to raise much money in his first quarter.

Behold America! Your next Great White Hope!!!

2. And yet another Republican hopeful turns to the favorite media outlet of Americans
too young to vote.

Don't forget to Tweet it too, Timmy!

Tpaw being the first declared out of the gates for GOP.

5. Waving his flag, thumping his Bible and practicing "y'all" on anyone who'll listen...
Another Romney - changing with the wind.

14. I believe he did grow up in South St, Paul
:rofl:

A blue collar area that is rumored to not have a whole lot of use for Timmy anymore.

BTW true Minnesotans say "you guys" regardless of the gender of the people they are addressing.

13. He's late, isn't he? Why are Republicans starting so late with their "Exploration Committee"?
Don't they think they can beat Obama?
