Pawlenty: I wouldn't renominate Bernanke

Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R) said Tuesday that if he were president, he would not nominate Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke to a third term.

The GOP presidential candidate has been critical of the Fed's efforts to pump money into the economy and said that Bernanke has not been a good steward of the country's monetary policy.
