Pawlenty fundraiser for Emmer in Shorewood

Republican Tom Emmer’s campaign for governor released more information on where Gov. Pawlenty’s fundraiser for the Emmer campaign will be held.

The Emmer campaign says Pawlenty will host the fundraiser (along with Norm Coleman, John Kline, Michele Bachmann and Erik Paulsen) at the home of Marty & Anne Davis in Shorewood.

Campaign finance reports show that Marty Davis, an executive with Davisco Foods, has given mostly to Norm Coleman’s campaign between 2006 and 2010. He also donated to the MNGOP, Texas Congressman Ted Poe, Phil Krinkie’s failed campaign for Congress and Republican Brian Davis’ failed campaign for Congress in 2008.

Emmer’s campaign says the event will be closed to the press.

Here’s the info from the fundraising invite:

  • Karl

    Wow! With his close personal friends Norm, Michele and Timmy in attendance–his favorite pardon-seekers and recipients of his campaign donations–maybe convicted money-launderer and former Shorewood resident Frank Vennes Jr. will show up. Too bad Vennes’ home has been seized in the Petters Ponzi scandal, otherwise that would have been the perfect venue for this event.

  • Chad

    Good to see our current, past and future leaders connecting with business people who support Minnesota’s economy.

    These type of informal gatherings can bring about great results.

  • Dudley D. Right

    Poor old Karl Bremer at it again – still riding that dead mule and too dumb to know the difference. . .
