    Pawlenty drops out of race

    Pawlenty drops out of race

    Via The NY Times:

    Tim Pawlenty, the former governor of Minnesota,  told supporters on a conference call Sunday morning that he is ending his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination after a disappointing third-place finish at the Iowa straw poll.

    Mr. Pawlenty thanked his supporters in an early-morning call, two participants said, but acknowledged that he had decided overnight that his candidacy could not proceed.

    As I have made clear before, I liked Tim Pawlenty, and it is unfortunate he was unable to get traction.

    Not sure who this helps the most.  My guess is that the Pawlenty money-supporters will split between Perry and Romney.

    What do you think?

    Re The Straw Poll…
    Bachmann bought & presumably gave out 6,000 $35 voting tickets.

    She got 4,800 votes.

    1200 votes went elsewhere or they mistook them for crackers & ate them.

    I watched some footage of Iowa State Fair appearance closely – she is herded around by that fat guy. Her debate saw her off at every break – summoned for advice?

    I am not seeing a Masters of Tax Law (William & Mary )independent & knowledgeable woman . I see a pawn.
