The former two term governor of Minnesota Tim Pawlenty has ordained the internet as a major political campaign tool by choosing You Tube to confirm he will be a candidate for the Republican nomination for President.

Candidate Pawlenty says in the video that the country needs a president who will be frank with Americans about the severe challenges facing the country and how America can get back on track. He mentions the climbing federal debt and a slow recovery from the economic recession that’s left millions jobless.

“We’re going to have to do more than just give fancy speeches; we’ve had three years of that and it’s not working,” Pawlenty says. “Join me tomorrow and around the country in the days and weeks ahead. You won’t hear empty promises, you’ll hear solutions.”
