Nobody outside of Minnesota seems to knows who the hell Tim Pawlenty is, but our tax-adverse governor has nonetheless laid a solid fund raising foundation for his presidential ambitions.
T-Paw's political action committee, Freedom First, raked in $1,279,906.36 during the final three months of 2009, according to papers to be filed with the Federal Election Commission this weekend. Over 2,750 donors chipped in. You can read all about this, and more, at timpawlenty.com's "Freedom Feed." (The only reason we plug that here is because we derive a sick pleasure from retyping a phrase as hypnotic and empty and moronic as "Freedom Feed.")
