Gov. Pawlenty has cancelled his trip to the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in April. Pawlenty was scheduled to speak to the group on April 10th. Alex Conant, a spokesman for Pawlenty's Freedom First federal political action committee, said Pawlenty cancelled the event because the Red Bulls 34th Infantry Division will hold a ceremony to celebrate the return of troops from Iraq on the same day.
Gov. Pawlenty will be in Washington D.C. tonight to speak to the Susan B. Anthony List. He's scheduled to speak in New Hampshire tomorrow.
His next major out of state trip will be Iowa on April 17th.
