I may have missed this in the Democrat-Gazette this morning, but reading The State in Columbia, S.C., I was reminded of Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty's visit to Little Rock last night for a Republican fund-raiser. Doesn't sound like much news broke out. He won't get into the Sanford mess. He's not running for president (yet). Etc.
It would appear nobody asked Pawlenty whether he intends to let Al Franken take his elected seat in the U.S. Senate as soon as the Minnesota Supreme Court upholds the election or whether he will continue obstacles to full representation for his state.
(Jason Tolbert, the Republiblogger, has video, of course.)
