BREAKING: Pawlenty Jumps Into MN-Gov

Former Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R-MN) is running for his former position, the Associated Press reported Thursday.

The former governor made a bid for president in 2012, but he dropped out early in the race after his national campaign failed to gain traction.

But his popularity in Minnesota could turn the blue state red.

Pawlenty’s entrance into the race prompted election forecasters to change their ratings of the race. Originally considering the race as “lean Democrat,” the University of Virginia’s Crystal Ball changed its rating to “toss up.”
