Former Republican Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty told CNNs Piers Morgan Tuesday hes in the race.
Im running for president, Pawlenty said in an interview set to air Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on Piers Morgan Tonight. Im not putting my hat in the ring rhetorically or ultimately for vice president. Im focused on running for president.
Pawlenty announced the formation of a presidential exploratory committee last month.

Yeah...someone safe. Someone who isn't controversial. Someone who will graciously lose to the Democrat.
Everyone has their flaws, some have fewer (Reagan, Washington) and some have more (Carter, Obama).
After 7 years of this Obama charisma thing, charisma just is not what it is cracked up to be. I was born in Canada under the Trudeaumania thing, a reaction to which may explain my preference for boring people like Tim Pawlenty. Other than being the anti-Obama on the charisma scale, what else you don’t like about Pawlenty?
I want “not-Obama”. Obama = basketball, Pawlenty = hockey. Great!!
Chris Christie is a social liberal. He’s a fiscal hero, but the more that conservatives look at Christie, the less enticing he will be to us as a Presidential candidate. And as for foreign affairs, President Christie would be what everyone else in the world hates most about Americans, kind of like Hitler + Kruschev = Christie kind of thing. The fact is Christie does the most for America by being an exemplary bad-ass GOP governor of a blue state.
Also, I don’t want to risk supporting folks for executive office who have never run anything besides their own campaigns (like Obama) - that has turned out horribly. So that rules out Ryan, Rubio, etc. I love Ryan, Rubio and many of our recent congress critters, but not yet... though come to think of it Rubio might make an outstanding VP candidate, he would add some charisma that Pawlenty lacks.
President Tim Pawlenty and Vice President Marco Rubio - I think that would be a really good combo.
