…that Minnesota’s first female governor would be Republican.
But I always thought she’d be elected, as opposed to fleeting up because our governor got a promotion:
Pawlenty, who previously has gone out of his way to tamp down expectations, on Tuesday pointedly dodged the veep question.
“I’ve stopped engaging in all this vice-presidential discussion,” he told Fox News on Tuesday, in an interview from Arlington. “It’s interesting, I’m sure, for people to speculate about, but I’ve stopped engaging in it.”
On Wednesday, Pawlenty popped over to Michigan to speak to Republicans at a well-known audition spot: the Lincoln Day dinner.
I suppose her first act in office might be to appoint Larry Pogemiller to head MNDoT.
