It’s Pawlenty And The Turkey This Saturday

Gov. Tim Pawlenty will stare eye to eye at a turkey Saturday, his traditional pre-Thanksgiving turkey industry promotion.

The governor is in San Diego, Calif., this week and plans a vacation next week, leaving Saturday as the only time when he could meet the turkey (Minnesota is the country’s No. 1 turkey producer). He normally holds the meeting on a weekday, which would provide greater media coverage.
