Pawlenty Drops Out


T-Paw has decided to bow out of the Race for the White House.

Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty abandoned his bid for the GOP presidential nomination on Sunday after a disappointing finish in the Ames Straw Poll in Iowa.

“We needed a boost from Ames that didn’t happen,” Pawlenty told staff on a conference call Sunday morning, CNN learned.

Speaking to ABC’s “This Week,” Pawlenty said his campaign needed a lift in the straw poll.

“The pathway forward for me doesn’t really exist and so we’re going to end the campaign,” he said.

I’m not 100% certain where T-Paw went wrong, but I suspect that his support for an individual mandate for Minnesota had something to do with it… in the wake of ObamaCare, that’s pretty much a problem for any candidate.
