Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota says repealing President Barack Obama's health care law would be a big part of his platform if he runs for president in 2012.

Pawlenty says he'll decide early next year if he'll get into the race.

He appeared Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union."

(This version CORRECTS by deleting reference to recent straw poll of social conservatives; Pawlenty did not participate in that poll.)
