Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty will campaign Wednesday in Richmond with Republican Bob McDonnell.

Pawlenty is a fiscal and social conservative raising his profile within Republican circles nationally and spawning speculation of a presidential bid. He campaigned last week in New Jersey for Republican Chris Christie.

New Jersey and Virginia are the only states electing governors this year.

Pawlenty is the latest Republican governor to campaign with McDonnell in Virginia. Others include Louisiana's Bobby Jindal and Mississippi's Haley Barbour.
