Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty has spent a lot of time on the road since he announced he would not seek a third term on June 2, 2009. That's fed speculation that Pawlenty is trying to build his national profile so he can seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2012. Minnesota Public Radio News is keeping a running list of all Pawlenty's scheduled engagements. Green points indicate official travel; red points indicate unofficial trips -- mostly speeches to Republican and conservative groups.
