When the deal was.
Together governor Pawlenty cut a deal with the special interest groups and He put in the same bill.
A vote to increase the cigarette tax as well as a vote that would take -- protections from the am born.
And I made a decision.
I believe in the sanctity of human life.
And I believe you can get money wrong that you can't get life wrong and that's why came down on that decision and I.
-- what's wrong in the answer is the answer.
Congresswoman Bachmann didn't vote for that bill because of it -- stripping away a pro life protections she voted for and is now crede net as the excuse.
Okay from Minnesota nice to Minnesota mean the gloves coming off -- congresswoman Michelle Bachmann and former governor Tim Pawlenty.
So will toughening up help his campaign.
Joining us now some thoughts -- -- -- pileup -- campaign manager nick -- NIC great to see you welcome.
Rick great to see you it's an incredible day in Ames who -- I it looks like from behind you got quite the greenback -- you know it seems that Tim -- is staking a lot of today's drop -- and that one reason he's pulling no punches against.
-- Minnesota Michelle Bachmann is this -- industries debate is.
That He sees her as a -- does -- think of her as the biggest threat to his campaign moment.
They'll look at she's another competitor were all competing against each other for the same votes in Iowa.
The debate showed some important differences Michel's got a long history of saying the right things she's just never actually accomplished in the -- Governor when he's not so much a talker as He -- -- walker he's government one of the most.
Liberal states in the country and moved it in a conservative direction He actually transformed a Supreme Court He balanced a state budgets those -- things He just.
Thought talked about He actually did and what He wanted to point out that the debate I think He did it.
Quite effectively is that while Michelle said all the right thing for six years that she went on par.
She -- to oppose cap and trade she led to stop government increase spending.
The results of those is that she did actually achieve any of those results if you're gonna leave you gotta be accountable for the results and I think.
We have we I think governor when He pointed that out well on Thursday night we're looking for really good outcome here -- -- Today -- very interestingly if you think fireworks though between the between mr.
Valenti and other candidates besides Buckman so one wonders if He sees her.
As you know particularly a threat to his organization his campaign at the moment.
Well -- -- know we didn't show up He showed up talking about his record Michelle showed up looking for a fight.
Her staff was passing out opposition research to reporters even prior to the debate.
Or -- just as the debate began so He showed up to talk about his record because He actually has one.
And He has one of achieving result she has one of talking a lot.
And as to the confrontation look we're they're all competing for the same -- ultimately -- we're gonna see a party united and ready to defeat.
This president we have to -- you're.
-- is that He may have to reassess the campaign if He doesn't come in in the top three or four.
And the leaders in the in the straw poll tonight that He doesn't come out on top there -- how do you feel about this is He still sticking to that we have to reassess.
If He doesn't if He falls flat in the -- I Iowa poll.
Sure -- campaigns are about constantly reassessing and reevaluating the filled your budget your revenue opportunity in the marketplace is not that different.
Then a business in this as the dynamics change you have to change the dynamics of -- campaign so of course we'll do that after the straw poll like every other campaign will.
We're gonna have a new entry into the race this afternoon with governor Perry -- that -- Be a new dynamics I think all you'll find all campaigns reassessing the dynamics after tonight's results come -- All right well -- waiting and watching to see how the results turn out wish you all the best thank you very much for joining us today.
