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.”
