WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty says he’s told Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign to look elsewhere for a running mate.

Pawlenty, who competed briefly last year for the GOP nomination before dropping out and endorsing Romney, says he thinks he could serve the Republican ticket better in other ways.

Pawlenty says being asked to run as vice president with Romney would be an honor.

But Pawlenty tells CBS’ “Face the Nation” that he’s “encouraged people who asked this question in the campaign to look at other prospects.”
