Pawlenty: I'm dropping out

On ABC this morning, Tim Pawlenty announced that he was quitting the race.

"Obviously, that message didn't get the kind of traction or lift that we needed and hoped for coming into and out of the Ames straw poll.

We needed to get some lift to continue on and to have a pathway forward. That didn't happen, so I'm announcing this morning on your show that I'm going to be ending my campaign for president."
