On October 9, 2010, during his sixth visit to Iowa of the pre-campaign period, potential presidential candidate Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R-MN) was on a drive between Sioux Center and Williams, when he stopped for a break at the Casey's General Store in Early.  He tweeted this photo of himself holding a can of Spam and a container of Honey Nut Cheerio's ("MN-made Spam and cereal at Casey's General Store in Early, IA!").
