Pawlenty campaign out of debt

Thanks to a $2,000 donation from former rival Michele Bachmann's political action committee, the Pawlenty for President campaign is finally out of debt, according to the Star Tribune.

When the campaign ended last August, former Gov. Tim Pawlenty’s campaign was six figures in debt.

Donations to help settle the Pawlenty campaign debt have come in from various sources, including Mit Romney.

“It was truly an honor to run for President of the United States,” Pawlenty said in a statement Tuesday. “Mary and I will be forever grateful to the many supporters who inspired and sustained the campaign. I am also glad we were able to pay all campaign debts and wind down the campaign properly.”
