Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty is expected to announce in about two hours that he will not run for a third term next year. Speculation turns to the question of whether he'll seek the presidency.

Update: Pawlenty makes it official.

"My focus is going to be on the next 19 months, finishing my term out strong," he said at a news conference. "Beyond that, I don't know what my plans are.

"I don't have any plans beyond serving out my term. I'm not ruling anything in or out."
