In Iowa, Pawlenty Calls Bachmann ‘a Strong Candidate’

From the Des Moines Register:

Former Gov. Tim Pawlenty said in Iowa Sunday that fellow Minnesota Republican Michele Bachmann would be a strong presidential candidate, but that having two prospects from one state would not complicate his candidacy, if both of them run.

“Congresswoman Bachmann is someone I have a cordial and positive relationship with,” Pawlenty said before signing copies of his new memoir at Family Christian bookstore in Ankeny. “I don’t know if she’s going to run for president. If she does run, she’ll be a strong candidate.”
