Pawlenty releases list of 100 endorsements from Minnesotans

Posted by: under 2012 Presidential election, Gov. Tim Pawlenty Updated: June 29, 2011 - 12:36 PM

While Rep. Michele Bachmann is the Minnesotan surging in the polls nationally, former Gov. Tim Pawlenty sought to show he’s winning on the home front Wednesday with a list of 100 “conservative Minnesotans” who are endorsing him for president.

The list includes current and former Minnesota legislators, including Minnesota House Speaker Zellers, as well as several Minnesota CEOs and top business executives. Many of the endorsers are also Pawlenty contributors.

One name that’s not included: Ron Carey, Bachmann’s former chief of staff and former state GOP chair who wrote an op-ed in the Des Moines Register Monday that said Pawlenty is ready to be president, but Bachmann is not.

You can see all of Pawlenty's endorsers below:
