Former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty (R) on Monday endorsed Mitt Romney for president, saying only Romney can turn around the nation’s economy and predicting that the former Massachusetts governor will be “a transformational and great president.”

“Uniquely, Mitt Romney in this race has a depth and scope of private sector experience as an entrepreneur, as somebody who’s invested in, started and grown businesses and importantly, grown jobs,” Pawlenty said in a morning appearance on “Fox & Friends.”
