Plenty of Republicans stand behind Wisconsin GOP Gov. Scott Walker in his decision to take on the public unions in his state. Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, a likely candidate for president next year, is one of them, Politico reports.

pawlenty,scott,walker,wisconsinPawlenty’s Freedom First PAC set up a website Thursday, www.standingwithscott.com which includes a video and petition supporting the “tough choices needed to avoid financial ruin.” Pawlenty says in the video, “It’s really important that America stand with Walker, stand with Wisconsin.” The video also includes a clip of Walker thanking Pawlenty among other Republican governors.

President Barack Obama doesn’t escape unscathed on the website. Its petition reads, “The nation's governors don't need a lecture from a president who has never balanced a budget.”
