Tim Pawlenty Expected to Enter Presidential Race

Posted on May 20, 2011



Tim Pawlenty, former Minnesota governor, is expected to announce that he is going to run for the Republican nomination for the 2012 presidential race.

He is expected to make the announcement in Iowa, which is the state where the caucuses begin for presidential candidates.

Republicans believe that it will be critical for Pawlenty to win in Iowa in order to become a legitimate opponent for current President Barack Obama.

Although Pawlenty is not one of the most well-known Republicans considering the Presidency, their is no clear front-runner and some of the most noteworthy and known Republican candidates have announced they will not seek the office of President of the United States.

Pawlenty has maintained a perception of levelheadedness due to the fact he has not made statements regarding news that is considered attention-grabbing. At the same time it has also given Pawlenty the illusion as a “boring” candidate.

This perception of Pawlenty could help him out in the long run if today’s “boring” turns into a focus on real and important issues.
