Pawlenty Abandons Presidential Bid

Tom Williams/Roll Call

GOP presidential contenders Herman Cain, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney also praised Pawlenty, with Cain writing on Twitter, I wish Governor Pawlenty the best. Of the many candidates, he was one of the kindest in the race. In a statement, Huntsman called Pawlenty an accomplished Governor, a proud conservative, and someone of tremendous character, and Romney said in a separate statement that Pawlenty has a bright future ahead of him as a leader in the Republican Party.
