Carlson Blasts Pawlenty for Raising Taxes

In a blog post, former Minnesota Gov. Arne Carlson (R) steps on his fellow Minnesota Republican's presidential announcement:

"One thing is certain about Monday's Presidential announcement by former Governor Tim Pawlenty: he will not bring up the fact that he presided over one of the larger tax increases in Minnesota's history... During his two terms as Governor, property taxes rose a stunning $2.5 billion - more than the previous 16 years combined... There is nothing personal in my assessment... However, I come from the more traditional wing of the Republican Party and truly believe in fiscal discipline and that the office of the Presidency should go to our nation's best and brightest and not its most ambitious."
