MPR poll: Pawlenty, Klobuchar rank high
A poll shows public support for Minnesota's governor and junior U.S. senator remains high.
A Minnesota Public Radio-Humphrey Institute poll found 61 percent of respondents approve of Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty, which MPR reports is up 6 points from a similar poll in August, when the governor was being considered for the vice presidential slot.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar, a Democrat wrapping up her second year in the Senate, had even higher marks.
