Tim Pawlenty To Piers Morgan: “I’m Running For President”

Posted by | April 12, 2011 19:16 | Filed under: Top Stories

Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty told CNN’s Piers Morgan that he’s in the race.

“Our trajectory is kind of a tortoise and hare strategy,” he tells Piers Morgan. As for Trump: “I think he’s funny, I think he’s exciting, he’s obviously very successful. I think he’d bring a lot to the debate.” (Then, he comments on Trump’s recent “birther” rhetoric and makes a hair joke.)

Would he accept an offer to be Trump’s VP?

“I’m running for President,” said Pawlenty, who has formed an exploratory committee but has yet to formally declare. “I’m not putting my hat in the ring rhetorically or ultimately for Vice President. I’m focused on running for President.”
