Pawlenty Is First Presidential Candidate To Say He Will Restore Don't Ask Don't Tell
In an interview posted on the American Family Association website Governor Tim Pawlenty states he would support a ban on homosexuals to be restored to the military.
Gov. Tim Pawlenty: "Bryan, I have been a public and repeat supporter of maintaining 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell.' There's a lot of reasons for that, but if you look at how the combat commanders and the combat units feel about it, the results of those kinds of surveys were different than the ones that were mostly reported in the newspaper, and that is something we need to pay attention to. But I have been a public supporter of maintaining 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,' and I would support reinstating it as well."
