Today’s UpTake: Pawlenty Addresses St. Paul Chamber

One and done. Pawlenty calls it quits after a 3rd place Iowa finish.

Today The UpTake will bring you coverage of Governor Tim Pawlenty’s address at noon to the St. Paul Area Chamber of Commerce. We’ve also got the video yesterday of former U.S. Senate candidate Mike Ciresi’s endorsement of Independent Party gubernatorial candidate Tom Horner. And did you catch our exclusive interview with Horner before the governor debates last Friday when he discussed the decline of the Minnesota Republican Party in recent years? Yesterday we also posted a video featuring Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers Austan Goolsbee, who looks back at President Obama’s record on the economy. The President also spoke about education yesterday to students at the White House. Back home in Minnesota, the peace activists protesting the FBI’s raids in September found sympathetic ears yesterday in Senator Klobuchar’s office. Finally, here’s another feature interview from SOCAP 2010 in San Francisco about socially conscious companies — this time with Rob Thomas from Social(k).
