Gov. Pawlenty is campaigning in Iowa today on behalf of Republican John McCain. At an event in Des Moines, Pawlenty said voting for Barack Obama was like a high risk sport.
"The people of the United States and Iowa are wise," he said. "Voting for Obama is the political equivalent of bungee jumping."
Iowa Democrats, however, pointed out the McCain has opposed ethanol - something that could cause concerns among farmers across the Midwest.
