Pawlenty heading to South Carolina

Washington (CNN) - Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty will visit the early primary state of South Carolina later this month, two Republicans familiar with the plans told CNN Wednesday.

Pawlenty, who is seriously considering a 2012 presidential bid, will address an Aiken Republican Club luncheon on March 16.

Pawlenty has made repeated appearances in the presidential kickoff states of Iowa and New Hampshire in recent months, but he has not visited the Palmetto State since last June, when he attended fundraisers for the South Carolina Republican Party and then-House candidate Mick Mulvaney.

    Does anyone really care what about this man, or where he travels?

    I'm sure the residents of MN have been wondering why the farg he's been everywhere but MN for the past 2 years or so.

    First I agree with Snifft. LOL !!!

    Then I would like to go on record and say that he is completely irrelevant and a waste of time and energy. Can you imagine this wimpy individual as president of the US. He looks like he should be coaching little league baseball...the girls team!!

    Allowing people in the state of SC - or any of the red southern states for that matter - choose political leaders makes as much sense as requesting advice from Joe the Plumber on fusion reactor design.
