Gov. Pawlenty is headed to Michigan on Tuesday to campaign for the GOP candidate for governor. His PAC spokesman says Pawlenty is headed to Michigan to help Rick Snyder’s campaign for governor and other local Republicans.
He says he’ll hold a series of fundraisers in Grand Rapids and Detroit before being the featured speaker at the Macomb County GOP dinner in Sterling Heights.
This isn’t the only out of state campaigning Pawlenty will do this week. He’s scheduled to be in Des Moines, Iowa on Wednesday night and Thursday.
