COLUMBUS — Tim Pawlenty, a Republican who managed to get elected governor in Democrat-friendly Minnesota, already has said bye-bye to the presidential race.
U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas might as well say sayonara, for all the attention he gets from reporters. Others like former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum are in single digits in the polls and also not getting much attention.
This is all before a single vote has been cast in a real caucus or primary.
