Former Gov. Tim Pawlenty’s exploratory presidential campaign is planning a big fundraiser on May 18.
D’Amico and Sons catering confirmed to MPR News that Pawlenty’s campaign has reserved the atrium space of International Market Square for an event that day.
Someone with knowledge of the event told us the evening gathering in Minneapolis is one of several scheduled around the country. It’s not clear who is invited to the Minneapolis fundraiser, how much money will be raised or how many people will be there. D’Amico and Sons says the space can accommodate up to 1,200.
A Pawlenty spokesman declined to comment on the upcoming fundraisers.
