Pawlenty: Campaign turning into reality TV

(CNN) - Tim Pawlenty took on a self deprecating tone Tuesday night while he mocked his failed Republican presidential bid.

The former two-term Minnesota governor was the first candidate to drop out of the 2012 race for the White House after a disappointing finish in the high stakes Ames Straw Poll in August. During an appearance on Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report," Pawlenty attributed the decision to money, and a little humiliation.

Former Pawlenty supporters pursued by other campaigns

Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN) - When Tim Pawlenty quit the presidential race, his supporters in New Hampshire quietly called each other to spread the word. Then the other campaigns started calling, too.

The former Minnesota governor had built a strong staff in the first-in-the-nation primary state, and now those staffers were suddenly at loose ends in the 2012 race. For former Pawlenty staffers, another candidate is the alternative to stay in the game. And Pawlenty's competitors didn't want to miss their chance.

Pawlenty and his advisers had hoped that a first or second-place finish would validate his Iowa strategy and give his flagging campaign a much-needed boost.
