Pawlenty, speaking on Fox News, cited Romney’s “depth and scope” of experience in the private sector.
“I think he’s going to be a transformational and great president for this country,” he told Fox News, calling Romney’s business resume “unmatched.”
Though Pawlenty had criticized Romney over Massachusetts’ health care plan before dropping out of the race last month, the former Minnesota governor said Monday he’s confident Romney would fight to undo the federal health care overhaul — which bears similarities to the Massachusetts law.
“Mitt Romney is 100 percent dedicated and committed to repealing Obamacare,” Pawlenty said, citing Romney’s pledge to grant the states waivers from the federal law.
