ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Republican Tim Pawlenty is building in three days of campaigning in New Hampshire ahead of a nationally televised presidential candidate debate in the opening primary state.

The former Minnesota governor was due to arrive Friday for the first of four events between then and Sunday. It comes prior to the debate featuring seven declared or likely presidential candidates, which will be held Monday night.

Pawlenty has made several visits to New Hampshire over the past couple of years. He stresses his fiscal credentials in a state where money matters tend to hold sway.

Fellow Minnesota Republican, Rep. Michele Bachmann, is also scheduled to be in New Hampshire for the debate that will air on CNN.

    18 months of this nonsense and anyone who doesn’t already see it as Romney/Pawlenty is insane.

      Well you may call yourself reasonable but you are not to bright. Yes 18 months of this nonsense, it only took bush 8 years to run this country over the cliff and 18 months everything should be back to normal. Give me a break, are peoples minds that shallow in long term thinking capabilities. And as for pawlenty for those of us that had the oppurtunity to experience his drastic ridiculous policies he will not be getting votes on this side of the fence.
