Pawlenty says he drops out of White House race
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican Tim Pawlenty, a former Minnesota governor, said Sunday he was dropping out of the 2012 U.S. presidential race a day after a disappointing finish in the Iowa straw poll.
"We needed to get some lift to continue on and to have a pathway forward. That didn't happen," he told the ABC television program "This Week." . "I'm going to be ending my campaign for president, but I'm very, very grateful for the people of Iowa, the people of this country, who I had a chance to make my case to, and for my supporters and staff and friends who've been so loyal and helpful," he said.
