Pawlenty names 29 county chairs in Iowa

Tim Pawlenty’s campaign sent out a list today of 29 county chairs in Iowa, as part of his preparations for the big Ames Straw Poll on Aug. 13.

There are 99 counties in the state, but Politico says this indicates Pawlenty is doing well in the ground game, even though his staff seems to be low-balling his chances.

(His campaign must feel it will be all the easier, then, to declare that a second-place finish — to Bachmann — is a major victory for the campaign.)
