Pawlenty Drops Out Of Presidential Race

August 14, 2011, 3:47 PM

Pawlenty Drops Out Of Presidential Race
Political buzz is radiating from Iowa this weekend.

Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann won the Republican Straw Poll in Sunday.

After a third-place finish, another Minnesotan, former governor Tim Pawlenty, says he's dropping out of the race.

Pawlenty says he didn't have enough momentum to make it to the White House.

“There's a lot of factors that go into a successful campaign. We had some success raising money but we needed to continue that and Ames was a benchmark for that. And if we didn't do well in Ames, we weren't going to have the fuel to keep the car going down the road,” Former GOP Candidate Tim Pawlenty said.

Pawlenty struggled to gain traction in Iowa, a state he had said he must win, after laying the groundwork for a campaign for nearly two years.

With one success and another giving up, we took to Facebook to find out what you think of Minnesota's presidential contenders and the political climate. Click here to see what people had to say.
