The governor said he will give the keynote address at the Manchester Republican Committee Lincoln-Reagan Day Dinner on March 25.
The trip is Pawlenty's second in recent months. He spoke in Concord, N.H. in December.
"It’s a great event that will help Republicans win in 2010. Can any Granite Staters tell me when the ice-out is? Would be fun to also play some hockey while I’m there," Pawlenty said via Facebook.
Please raise your hand if you think the trip is about 2010, ice or hockey.
