Governor Pawlenty’s three political action committees report raising nearly $778,000 in the 3rd quarter of the year. A source with Pawlenty’s PACs says the federal PAC raised $557k, the Iowa state PAC raised $135k and the New Hampshire PAC raised almost $86k. Pawlenty’s federal PAC is aimed at helping state and federal candidates across the country. The New Hampshire and Iowa PACs are aimed at helping state and local candidates in those respective states.
Pawlenty also gave $113k to candidates and political party units in the 3rd Quarter. He gave $5,000 each to the New Hampshire Republican Party, the Florida state Senate GOP, gubernatorial candidates in Nevada, Oregon and Illinois and three New Hampshire candidtes who are running for the U.S. Senate and Congress (Kelly Ayotte, Frank Guinta and Charlie Bass).
The deadline to file the FEC reports on the federal level is tomorrow.
