Pawlenty Downplays Iowa Caucuses

Tim Pawlenty tells David Brody he doesn't need to win the Iowa caucuses and concedes that Rep. Michele Bachmann will do well there because she "is from Iowa."

His new talking point is that he can do well beyond Iowa.

Said Pawlenty: "I'm the one candidate who can not only do well in a place like Iowa, but can win in New Hampshire, South Carolina, Florida, but also more importantly, beat Barack Obama in a general. There's a bunch of people who can do well in Iowa, but aren't gonna win the election."

Meanwhile, Ben Smith notes it's a big day for Pawlenty campaign obituaries.
