WOODBURY, Minn. (WCCO) — Former Gov. Tim Pawlenty is back in Minnesota, after many days on the road promoting his new book “Courage to Stand.”

The former governor signed copies of his book at a Christian bookstore in Woodbury.

Since leaving office, Pawlenty WCCO’s political reporter Pat Kessler he’s spent a lot of time considering a 2012 presidential run but knows he has to do well in early balloting states to have a chance.

“For me, or a candidate like me, you have to do well in Iowa, there’s no question about it.  But I think I could also do well in a place like New Hampshire,” said Pawlenty.

Not coincidentally, Pawlenty’s book tour will take him to Iowa and New Hampshire in the coming weeks.

The former governor said he enjoys his freedom after leaving public office, but sometimes misses the debate.
