MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty is wrapping up his national book tour with stops in his home state and two other states that play a key role in the presidential nominating process, Iowa and New Hampshire.

About 100 people showed up at the Barnes and Nobles store in Manchester Monday, where Pawlenty spent an hour signing copies of his book, “Courage to Stand: An American Story.” He’ll return to Minnesota later this week before heading to Iowa next weekend.

Among the Republicans sizing up 2012 campaigns, Pawlenty joins former Govs. Sarah Palin of Alaska, Mike Huckabee of Arkansas and Mitt Romney of Massachusetts as well as former House Speaker Newt Gingrich with books on store shelves.

Pawlenty has said to expect his decision on the campaign by March.

      Remember that these books paved the way for Obama to gain his “wealth”!
      There would have been little money to be made as a community organizer…
      and presto, he is a millionaire!

  2. Sue says:

    Why would you try and sell your book in a state like New Hampshire where nobody knows who you are unless it’s for political reasons like running for president.

  3. Chris says:

    Yeah, that would appear to be the objective…
    Also, I heard that as of last week he had only sold 5,000 copies…
    Does anyone know if that is that accurate?
    That would not be a good indicator of his chances either.

    1. Paul says:

      It surprises me that he sold only 5000 copies. They must have been sold at cabins where they didn’t have indoor plumbing. You can’t get a sears catalog anymore.

  4. Albert says:

    Whatever gives these minor-league nobodies the notion that they can make it on the national stage?!!

  5. Randy says:

    He should have named the book Courage to Lie. Would have sold more copies. This guy is a complete zero. This conservative independent will vote for a democrat if he is nominated.

  6. b says:

    Just another stupid republican who takes credit for the work someone put in it. you know he did not do any writing i doubt he even knows what the book says the only thing he did was take a picture what an idiot just like Bush
