Gov. Tim Pawlenty will announce that he will not seek re-election in 2010.Of course, this is old news for Centrisity readers:
The sources confirmed to WCCO-TV political reporter Pat Kessler that the announcement about Pawlenty's future plans will include an announcement that he will not seek a third term.
Of course, TPaw has no interest or desire to seek a third term. It is way to politically risky to his future national aspirations. That's why he is rolling the stubborn 'who cares about the little guy' dice. His only constituency at this point is the far Right base that will be integral in selecting the MNGOP sacrificial lamb ticket of 2012. Why anyone would stand in line for that slaughter confuses me. But that is what it will be.Let the battle for the bottom begin!
UPDATE: Yeap, Its official. The Governor is NOT seeking a 3rd term and not stating anything about his future.
