Pawlenty makes it to Elite 8, battling DeMint for Final 4
Gov. Tim Pawlenty managed to squeeze out a win against Newt Gingrich in National Public Radio's March Madness GOP 2012 bracket. Can he make it to the Final Four?
Next up for Pawlenty: battling it out with Jim DeMint for the Final Four. We never thought T-Paw had it in him. Do people outside of Minnesota even know who the guy is?
Last week he proudly proclaimed he didn't care about the bracket. He's got better things to care about these days.
Vote on the NPR bracket here. Pawlenty is currently leading DeMint 61-38. Hocket mullet for prez!
