Yet another would-be GOP presidential candidate has shown up at Drumthwacket, the governor's mansion in Princeton, to kiss the gubernatorial ring.

Tim Pawlenty, former governor Minnesota, had dinner with Christie and a small group of advisors last week, reports the Associated Press's Angela Delli Santi. Pawlenty follows in the footsteps of Haley Barbour, the governor of Mississippi, and Mitt Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, both of whom have met with Christie at Drumthwacket in recent weeks.

We don't know exactly what was discussed, but we can presume that the candidates were: A) Hoping to lay the groundwork for a coveted endorsement from Christie, B) Gauging whether Christie is being honest when he says he is definitely not running for president himself, and C) Considering whether the gov might be a good pick for vice president.

The AP's source says other Republican presidential candidates are expected to "come courting" in the months ahead.
