Politico is reporting that Gov. Pawlenty has accepted a speaking engagement to the Susan B. Anthony List:
The annual event for the group that supports anti-abortion candidates is one of the largest functions for Washington’s social conservative circle each spring and represents a strong forum for Pawlenty to bolster his conservative credentials.
The SBA gala is the latest prominent GOP event that Pawlenty, who polls show is not well known outside Minnesota, plans to attend as he builds his national brand.
On Monday, Pawlenty suggested he was cutting back on his out of state travel to deal with the upcoming legislative session.
