Book brings GOP's Pawlenty back to IowaST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — For the first time since leaving office, Minnesota Republican Tim Pawlenty is Iowa bound.
The former governor arrives Sunday for two days of book events. Pawlenty is promoting “Courage to Stand,” but he's also working to build his brand as he moves toward a likely run for president.
Pawlenty has been in Iowa about a half-dozen times since ruling out another campaign for governor.
His itinerary this time includes stops in Ankeny and West Des Moines.
He heads back to Iowa on Feb. 7 to deliver a lecture to a socially conservative group known as The Family Leader
