Pawlenty Endorses Romney Campaign

Prior to the Tea Party Debate Monday night, former GOP candidate Tim Pawlenty, during an appearance on Fox News, endorsed former rival Mitt Romney for the 2012 GOP Presidential nomination.

“Alone among the contenders, [Romney] possesses the unique qualifications to confront and master our severe economic predicament. His abiding faith in our country’s exceptional historical position as a beacon of freedom will make him the most important leader in a world that depends upon a strong America to stay at peace,” Pawlenty said.

According to Deseret News, the endorsement comes only months after Pawlenty criticized Romney for passing a health bill in Massachusetts which President Barack Obama said was a model for his own healthcare legislation. Pawlenty called Obama’s plan “Obamneycare” after both Obama and Romney.

After being asked about his sudden change of opinion, Pawlenty said he now believes Romney is dedicated to repealing Obamacare.

Pawlenty also said he believes Romney has better plans for Social Security reform than Texas Governor Rick Perry, who is considered Romney’s biggest rival at this point in the race.

“Gov. Romney wants to fix Social Security. He doesn’t want to abolish it or end it,” Pawlenty said. “Gov. Perry has said in the past that he thought it was ‘failed.’”

Pawlenty is joining the Romney campaign as a national co-chairman but said he would not consider any other positions in the Romney camp.

“I’m not going to consider being VP. I was down that path once before with John McCain,” he said. “That won’t be part of the future for me.”
