Gov. Tim Pawlenty is headed back to New Hampshire.

"Looking forward to going to the Strafford County Republican Committee annual summer picnic in Dover, New Hampshire on July 10th. Hope you can join us if you’re in the area!” he wrote on his Facebook page.

The New Hampshire Union Leader wrote about the visit here.

The visit to the early presidential primary state is Pawlenty's third since late last year. The governor has avoided saying if he has decided to run for president in 2012 but all evidence -- repeated trips to New Hampshire, Iowa and to other politically important spots across the country, a bio-book forthcoming, a political action committee collecting and distributing cash -- points to a run.

So far, the action has not translated into polling success but it has equaled attention from the national   chatting classes.
