Pawlenty forms presidential exploratory committee


UNDATED (WKOW) -- Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty is eyeing a potential run for the White House.

On Monday, Pawlenty announced on Facebook that he is forming a presidential exploratory committee. The 50-year-old Republican said the move would put a "structure" and "organization in place to take these initial steps to run for president of the United States."

"We know what we need to do - grow jobs, limit government spending and tackle entitlements," Pawlenty said in a video message that emphasizes his blue collar roots from the Middle of America. "Join the team and together, we'll restore America."
