Nothing at all definite. Just that the GOP chair in MN wants Pawlenty to run.
“Like my mom always used to say, things always work out for the best in the end, and maybe this is an opportunity for Minnesota,” said Tony Sutton, chairman of the Minnesota Republican Party.
Sutton said he hasn’t talked to Pawlenty yet, but knows what he’ll say when the time comes.
“Now that he’s not running for president, I sure hope he’d consider running for U.S. Senate,” said Sutton. “I think he’d make a heck of a candidate.”
Just recently, Pawlenty dismissed the idea of running against incumbent U.S. Sen. Amy Kobuchar, who is up for re-election next year. Pawlenty’s campaign did not respond to a request for comment on Sunday. But Sutton isn’t deterred.
Pawlenty in Des Moines”The thing about politics is, you never say never,” said Sutton, saying Pawlenty was likely posturing about the Senate race because he was running for the White House.
