Gov. Tim Pawlenty, a potential 2012 candidate for president, sure seems to like early voting states.
Iowans for Tax Relief just announced Pawlenty will be the keynote speaker at their April 17 "2010 Iowa Taxpayers Day" gathering in Des Moines.
Pawlenty visited Iowa late last year to address a Republican Party gathering.
The governor has a March 25 visit planned to keynote the Manchester Republican Committee Lincoln-Reagan Day dinner in New Hampshire, which, like Iowa votes early in party's presidential selection contests. He last stumped in New Hampshire in December.
