WASHINGTON — Gov. Tim Pawlenty will meet here this morning with members of the national press corps who would be covering him in what is expected to be his next role: Presidential candidate.
The breakfast meeting was organized by the Christian Science Monitor and, as Pawlenty spokester Alex Conant told Politics Daily, serves as a chance for national journalists to get to know TPaw:
“He’s been traveling the country for the past few months, but a lot of people outside of Minnesota don’t know him, including some members of the Washington Press corps. This is a fun way for him to share his story and his vision for 2010 and answer press questions.”
