Pawlenty campaigns in Eastern Iowa

WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Tim Pawlenty focuses on Eastern Iowa Friday with stops in Waterloo and Cedar Rapids.

Political experts believed this time to be critical for him as we approach the Iowa Straw poll in about a month.

Pawlenty told the Des Moines Register he has now begun his campaign in earnest here in Iowa. Many political experts believe it's now or never for the former Minnesota Governor. Pawlenty trailed front runner Mitt Romney by 17 points in the latest Register poll, and was 16 points behind fellow Minnesotan Michele Bachman, who spent last week touring the state.

Experts believe he'll have to make up significant ground on Bachman in the straw poll in Ames if he's to be a viable candidate.
