GOP’S Paw­lenty shaves pres­i­den­tial cam­paign debt

The Washington Times Daily - - Politics -

ST. PAUL | For­mer GOP pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Tim Paw­lenty has whit­tled his cam­paign debt down to $17,500.

The re­main­ing red ink is de­tailed in a monthly fed­eral cam­paign re­port filed Tues­day. It is down con­sid­er­ably from the nearly half-mil­lion dol­lars Mr. Paw­lenty owed last fall.

Mr. Paw­lenty, Min­nesota’s for­mer gov­er­nor, dropped out of the White House race in Au­gust af­ter a poor show­ing at the Iowa GOP’S straw poll. He was wor­ried about go­ing deep into debt to keep his cam­paign afloat.

Mr. Paw­lenty now backs for­mer Mas­sachusetts Gov. Mitt Rom­ney in the race.
