On Friday, I wrote about Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak saying on Fox Business Network that Gov. Pawlenty (a Republican) would “get his butt kicked by Barack Obama” if Pawlenty decided to run for president.
Pawlenty appeared on Fox Business Network today and was asked about Rybak’s comments. You can watch Pawlenty’s response here.
