In what might be a first for a possible 2012 candidate, Gov. Tim Pawlenty announced Monday that he'll hold a Facebook town hall Wednesday.

From his Facebook page:

Join Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty on Wednesday night for his first ever "Facebook Town Hall" meeting.

Governor Pawlenty will make a major announcement over Facebook and will seek input from Facebook uses on helping Republicans win the 2010 elections and stop runaway Washington spending.

Please join Gov. Pawlenty on Wednesday night at

8:15 PM Eastern Time - 7:15 PM Central Time - 6:15 PM Mountain Time - 5:15 PM Pacific Time

7:15 PM Eastern Time - 6:15 PM Central Time - 5:15 PM Mountain Time - 4:15 PM Pacific Time

Minnesota gubernatorial candidates have held several similar town halls in the quest to replace Pawlenty in the governor's office.

Question: What would be good turnout for the Pawlenty event? A few dozen? A few hundred? A few thousand? Pawlenty now has 31,488 Facebook fans.
