Gov. Pawlenty says he’s grateful for the support his Freedom First Political Action Committee is receiving but says it won’t impact his decision on whether he’ll run for president in 2012. Attorneys for Pawlenty’s PAC will report that he’s raised nearly $1.3 million in the final three months of 2009 when they file the report with the Federal Election Commission. The deadline to file the report is Sunday night.
Here’s video of Pawlenty talking with reporters about his fundraising totals, President Obama’s small business tax credit and a DFL leaning group’s criticism of his decision to reduce the renter’s credit in Minnesota.

Thanks to WCCO-AM for allowing me to interview the governor in their offices.
