(WATERFORD, Mich.) -- On the road in Michigan stumping for Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty toured a cabinet factory in Waterford on Thursday, which of course led to the question of a Romney cabinet position.
But he still didn’t answer the question, which he called “lame” (with a chuckle).
The former Minnesota governor is believed to be on Mitt Romney’s short list of running mates. But if he is passed over, then what will he do?
“You know we’re focused on trying to convey Gov. Romney’s message and the campaign,” Pawlenty said. ”It would be presumptuous and premature for people to be talking about positions down the road…I’m happy to be working in the private sector and on other projects, so beyond that I don’t have any plans.”
Pawlenty toured Accurate Woodworking and Cabinetry, where he greeted supporters who gathered at the store for his visit. He shook hands with the crowd asking them about their respective business and the economic struggles many were facing.
