Washington (CNN) - As former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty focuses his energy on Iowa ahead of an influential state straw poll, his wife Mary heads to New Hampshire this week to shore up support in the first-in-the-nation primary state.
Pawlenty last visited New Hampshire on June 13th, when he participated in the CNN/WMUR/New Hampshire Union Leader debate. In recent weeks he has heavily invested in Iowa, aiming to attract enough support in the Ames Straw Poll to give a jolt to his campaign.
Mary Pawlenty, a former Minnesota district court judge, will greet voters in Keene and Amherst on Monday. She will also participate in public events in Nashua and Manchester on Tuesday.
