Gov. Pawlenty will hit the Sunday talk show circuit again today. He’s scheduled to be on CNN’s State of the Union this morning.
Update: Pawlenty said it was too early to judge President Obama’s time in office but raised questions about federal spending, climate change bill and health care legislation.
He also said “I don’t know what the future holds” when asked if he’s running for president. CNN anchor John King said at the top of the interview that “Close associates of Tim Pawlenty have urged activists and reporters to add Pawlenty to that list (2012) list too.”
Pawlenty said he expects a “ruling any day now” from the Minnesota Supreme Court on Minnesota’s U.S. Senate race. He said he’s prepared to sign the election certificate “as soon as the court gives me the green light.”
Pawlenty also weighed in on the situation regarding South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford. He said he was happy to see Sanford’s wife not standing by his side at Sanford’s news conference.
I’ll put up the transcript when it’s available. Forget the transcripts. Here’s the video from his appearance.
