A little less than a month after dropping out of the Republican race for president, and Tim Pawlenty has already made his formal endorsement. The former Minnesota governor was on "Fox and Friends" this morning to make the announcement, and there he voiced his support for struggling, former-frontrunner Mitt Romney.

I know all the candidates in the race for president in 2012. I know them. I respect them. But the next president is going to have to lead on the economy and on jobs in a historic way. There's one candidate in this race unmatched in his skills and experience and talent when it comes to turning around this economy and growing jobs, and that's Mitt Romney.
