Tim Pawlenty, who is in the thick of rumors that he’ll be selected to be Mitt Romney’s running mate, will appear on two Sunday morning political shows this weekend. Pawlenty is scheduled to appear on both NBC’s Meet the Press and ABC’s This Week.
Pawlenty’s appearances come just two and a half weeks before Romney accepts the GOP nomination in Tampa, Florida. Pawlenty has made campaign appearances for Romney in Michigan, Ohio and North Carolina in recent months. He’s also scheduled to campaign for Romney in New Hampshire this weekend.
The former governor has been playing mum about his chances to be Romney’s running mate.
“We’ll know soon enough,” he said when reporters asked him about his chances during a campaign stop in Michigan.
Meanwhile, President Obama’s campaign is already looking to criticize Pawlenty and others on Romney’s short list. AP says Obama’s campaign is sending out e-mail alerts to Democrats asking them to provide information about the shortcomings of those who could be Romney’s running mate.
