Last night's Super Tuesday primary vote focused on just four presidential candidates from the Republican party. However, just months ago the field was significantly larger, with nine candidates. After Herman Cain, Michelle Bachmann, Rick Perry and John Huntsman dropped out of the race, they faded from the campaign trail. When GOP candidate Governor Tim Pawlenty took a disappointing third place finish in the Ames Straw Poll in August, however, he made a different decision by endorsing Mitt Romney for President less than a month later and taking a leadership position with the former Massachusetts governor’s campaign.
Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty is the national co-chairman of Romney's campaign.
