Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty on Monday announced the formation of an exploratory committee to run for the GOP presidential nomination via a YouTube video.

Pawlenty visited Iowa City last month as part of the Family Leader’s Presidential Lecture Series and discussed such issues as higher education and the importance of family in society.

He said he is seeking significant higher-education reform when he spoke in the IMU in February.

In the video, Pawlenty said the country needs to limit government spending, grow jobs, and encourage small-business owners in their ventures.
