Pawlenty downplays PAC's role
CANNON FALLS -- Despite rising national attention to his newly formed political action committee, Gov. Tim Pawlenty on Thursday continued to deny the group is his vehicle for a 2012 presidential bid.
"It's not geared towards me running for president," he said after speaking to Cannon Falls Area Chamber of Commerce members.
The governor's visit fell on the same day as the official launch of his Freedom First PAC.
