Tim Pawlenty heads to Florida holds a fundraiser in Minnesota tomorrow to raise money for conservative favorite Marco Rubio, who is running for Senate in Florida, Minnesota Public Radio reports. MPR points out:
“Pawlenty didn't back a candidate for Florida Senate until Crist decided to run as an independent. He's the latest White House hopeful to back Rubio. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin are all backing Rubio.”
"Marco Rubio represents the future of the Republican Party and has the common sense, conservative ideas we need more of in Washington," Pawlenty adviser Alex Conant told MPR. "Governor Pawlenty wants to do whatever he can to help Rubio's campaign, and is glad to host him in Minnesota."
