Another Trump Basher Goes Down in Flames=> Tim Pawlenty Fails in Comeback Bid for MN Governor
Another Trump critic bites the dust.
Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty trashed President Trump during the 2016 election calling him, “unfit and unhinged.”
Unlike other Never Trumpers Pawlenty did admit he voted for President Trump despite his harsh words.
On Tuesday Pawlenty found out it wasn’t such a good career move to bash Donald Trump.
Pawlenty lost his primary election to County Commissioner Jeff Johnson.
Via FOX News:
Tim Pawlenty — who briefly ran for president in 2012 and had derided President Trump as “unhinged” — was denied in his effort to stage a political comeback and become Minnesota’s governor again in the race to replace Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton.
County Commissioner Jeff Johnson won in Tuesday’s Minnesota GOP gubernatorial primary despite Pawlenty’s enormous fundraising and name recognition advantages. He also won despite his own history as the party’s losing candidate for governor four years ago.
Pawlenty joins several other prominent Republicans — including Reps. Martha Roby and Mark Sanford, as well as Sens. Jeff Flake and Bob Corker — who have recently suffered major political consequences, at least in part, for opposing Trump.
