As Minnesota’s legislature struggles to solve the biggest deficit in the state’s history, its former Governor, Tim Pawlenty is in neighboring Iowa to announce he is running for President. Minnesota’s Democratic Farmer Labor Party Chair Ken Martin traveled to Des Moines today to answer questions about Pawlenty’s record. Martin had a lot to tell.

He said Pawlenty announced today he is against subsidies for ethanol, which is exactly the opposite of what he promoted in Minnesota. Martin said that Pawlenty’s budget “gimmicks” that shifted the responsibility for solving the state’s revenue problems have left Minnesotans “holding the bag” and indicated what’s in the bag is not very nice.
