Pawlenty Quits Race After Poor Iowa Showing

Sunday, 14 Aug 2011 09:34 AM

By Hiram Reisner

Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty announced Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that he is dropping his presidential bid because of his lackluster showing in Saturday’s Iowa Straw Poll, Politico reports.
 
“We needed to get some lift to continue on and have a pathway forward and that didn’t happen, so I’m announcing on your show that I'm ending my campaign for president,” Pawlenty said. “I wish it would have been different, but obviously the pathway forward for me doesn’t really exist, so we’re going to end the campaign.”

Pawlenty was unable to raise a sizeable war chest and spent a significant amount of what he received on TV and radio in the lead-up to the straw poll.
He also ruled out a vice presidential nomination.
