Tim Pawlenty calls it quits

Apparently yesterday’s distant third place finish was enough to tell T-Paw that it wasn’t happening, and is set to announce an end to his bid this morning.

It seemed like he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He had a decent record and seemed like he’d make a good president, but there are so many irons in the fire it’s hard to stand out. His lack of charisma seemed to doom him in my opinion.

It’s very classy of him to pull the plug earlier instead of stretching it out forever. This slate needs to coalesce and get on with getting Obama out of Washington.

I wonder if this means Nick Ayers will join the Perry campaign? They certainly know each other well and did great things with the RGA.
