Whoever wins the GOP presidential sweepstakes obviously will need substantial support from the Republican Party’s conservative base. Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty realizes that as much as any candidate.

So he put out a new TV ad, with the theme of “Results, Not Rhetoric,” Tuesday to be broadcast across Iowa focusing on his conservative accomplishments as governor.

The 30-second spot states that Pawlenty "refused to cave in to government unions" during a 2004 transit strike, and that he "would not accept Democrats' massive tax and spending demands" during a brief state government shutdown in 2005.


Story continues below video.



The ad represents the second for Pawlenty in the nation’s first primary/caucus state. The initial spot came out last month, just after a Des Moines Register poll showed Pawlenty attracting the support of only 4 percent of Republicans likely to attend the caucuses.
