Gov. Pawlenty gave a speech to the 25th annual Emerging Issues Forum in Raleigh, NC this morning. His speech was standard fare for Pawlenty watchers. He stressed that schools and universities better start offering classes online.
He also talked about 2012 (not sure what he’s going to do next), the Tea Party and creativity in general with reporters after the speech.
Mark Binker with the News and Record in North Carolina recorded the speech and the q and a. You can listen to both here.
