Beltway Happenings  
Aug. 6, 2008--Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R-MN), frequently mentioned as a possible running mate for Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), spoke about "Sam's Club Republicans" at a National Press Club luncheon.  Pawlenty was elected in 2002 and re-elected in 2006 after serving ten years in the Minnesota House of Representatives.  Vice presidential speculation has continued unabated for several months among both Democrats and Republicans despite the absence of reliable information.
