ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Former Minn. Gov. Tim Pawlenty will campaign with Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney this weekend in New Hampshire.
Pawlenty will join his former rival for the nomination at a rally late Sunday morning in Rochester, New Hampshire. Pawlenty dropped out of the GOP presidential race in August after finishing poorly in a poll of Iowa caucus voters, and endorsed Romney a short time later.
Romney narrowly won the Iowa Caucus earlier this week and is seen as the frontrunner to be the Republican presidential nominee. The New Hampshire primary is this coming Tuesday, and Romney has been leading in polls there.
