pawlenty, christie, endorseThat marks the third potential presidential candidate to come a courting for the conservative New Jersey governor. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour also have paid their respects. And New Jersey Republicans tell Politico that others will follow.
