Pawlenty Closes Books On Campaign Debt
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Former GOP presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty has wiped away the last of his campaign debt.
Pawlenty’s campaign said Tuesday it had filed its last report and filed papers to terminate his campaign committee.
The debt stood at nearly a half-million dollars last fall, but was down to just a few thousand last month.
Pawlenty’s had help raising money to pay off the debt from Mitt Romney, whom he’s backing in the race.
Pawlenty, the former two-term Minnesota governor, dropped out of the race in August after a poor showing in the Iowa GOP’s straw poll.
