Pawlenty's Term Could Be Extended

On a radio show, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R) admitted he was a little "sad" that he won't have a four year term with a state legislature completely controlled by Republicans.

But he might get a brief chance if the gubernatorial race between Mark Dayton (D) and Tom Emmer (R) isn't settled.

Minneapolis Star Tribune: "If the stalemate continues past Jan. 3, Pawlenty would continue as chief executive as the legislative session gets underway. GOP legislators could act quickly to send a budget-cutting bill to him to sign rather than waiting for a likely veto should Dayton prevail."
