The Invisible Primary, 6/29

Tracking the GOP race to 2012

Rep. Mike Pence will travel to Iowa in July; Gov. Tim Pawlenty spoke at the Arkansas GOP's annual governor's dinner in Little Rock Friday and told reporters Gov. Mark Sanford's affair shouldn't be viewed politically, also saying the scandal had damaged the GOP; he also said this weekend that he won't delay Al Franken's certification as a senator if the Minnesota Supreme Court rules in Franken's favor; and Gov. Sarah Palin traveled to Kosovo last week to visit Alaska National Guard troops, on a trip that continued through the weekend.
