Pawlenty Prepared To Serve Beyond End Of Term

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

The following is a statement from Governor Tim Pawlenty regarding the pending results of Minnesota’s gubernatorial election:

“The hard work and participation of so many Minnesotans leading up to and throughout yesterday’s election affirms Minnesota’s civic mindedness. While questions remain about the outcome of several contests, there is a process in place to provide the people of Minnesota with a final result as quickly as fairness and the law allows.

My administration is fully committed and prepared to accomplish the swift and orderly transition to the next governor as soon as a final determination is made. As required by Article V of the Minnesota Constitution, I will continue to serve as Governor until a new governor takes the oath.”
