Declined 2016 Republican Presidential Candidate

Former Governor of Minnesota


Timothy James Pawlenty
Born: November 27th, 1960  (age 54)



Timothy James Pawlenty, the former two-term governor of Minnesota, is renowned for his ability to connect with the masses. His middle-class background and humble personality lends him an earthy appeal to the average Joes, not unlike the warm Texan drawl of former president George W. Bush.

After withdrawing from the 2012 GOP nomination race, Pawlenty served briefly as the co-chair of Gov. Mitt Romney’s campaign for president, lending weight to swirling rumors of a potential Romney/Pawlenty pairing. However, after he was passed over as running mate by Romney in favor of Rep. Paul Ryan, Gov. Pawlenty left to join a Washington D.C.-based financial lobbying firm, reputed to be one of the most powerful in the country.

A comeback, at this point, looks unlikely. However, for some, time away from politics can reinvigorate the tired and jaded soul.
