Arizona Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign is struggling, and Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty admits there are problems.

"Obviously, it has not gone as well as he had hoped," McCain's national co-chairman said on WDAY radio's "Hot Talk."

Pawlenty said he still thinks McCain would be a good president and offered hope that he can "restart" the campaign.

The governor may have a big title, but Pawlenty said his co-chairmanship "is really a ceremonial job." His only role has been to fill in when McCain cannot speak at an event, about once a month, Pawlenty added.
