Pawlenty not trying to "out-preach" Huckabee

Minnesota station KARE reports on Tim Pawlenty's visit to a Christian bookstore yesterday to sign copies of his memoir.

Some reviewers have noted that Pawlenty sprinkled in many scriptural references to his memoir, but he told KARE that's not an overture to the Evangelical Christian segment of Republican primary voters.

"No, I'm not trying to out-preach my friend Mike Huckabee," Pawlenty laughed when asked about it.

That being said, Pawlenty has deep (though quieter) ties to the evangelical community.
