With the party convention just around the corner,’s VP speculations have come to a boiling point and this time former Minnesota Governor, finds himself in the mix. Nonetheless, as the VP favorite hits the campaign trail for Romney, he remains mum over his possible pick.
In a recent telephonic interview with Free Press, Pawlenty declined to comment on the possibility of him or anyone else becoming Mitt Romney’s Vice Presidential running mate. "I've been back to Michigan a fair amount," he demurred of Romney’s VP sweepstakes. "But as to the vice presidential thing, we'll know soon enough. He’s got a lot of great people to pick from. He’s got nothing but very good people to pick from.”
Pawlenty is a conservative who spent his time as the Governor of liberal state in an excellent manner, producing some impressive fiscal, budgetary and management results. The only apparent problem with Pawlenty is that he’s way too perfect. He doesn’t smoke, doesn’t drink, and gives 10 percent of his earnings on top of taxes and as Washington Times. Having too soft a person as VP might not be Romney’s best pick.puts it, “has a sterling business career”, according to a report by
As Pawlenty began his campaign in the swing states of Michigan and Colorado on Wednesday, alongside Ohio Sen., another possible VP pick, the former Minnesota Gov. responded to the resurgence of Obama in some of the polls. He said that Michigan remains a winnable state for Mitt Romney who was born and raised there before he left to become the governor of Massachusetts.
He said a large number of undecided voters will surely throw their support behind the presidential hopeful once his campaign begins in full swing after the August convention. “Those undecided will break significantly toward Gov. Romney,” he said according to NBC.
Following his appearance at Jackson, Pawlenty will be flying to Romney’s Boston headquarters before finally going to New Hampshire to begin his schedule there. When asked whether he plans to meet the VP selection guru, Beth Myers, he curtly replied, "We have a policy, the campaign just doesn't talk about the vice presidential vetting process."
He gave some of the names being considered as possible Romney running mates including Susanna Martinez,, , Nikki Haley, , , Rob Portman and Paul Ryan. "And David Petraeus," he added with perhaps a sly nod to the now debunked story by Drudge Report.
