Tim Pawlenty raised $4.2 million for the second campaign fundraising quarter -- a disappointing haul for a candidate many originally viewed as the top establishment threat to front-runner Mitt Romney.
Pawlenty spokesman Alex Conant said in a statement that Pawlenty "begins the third quarter with more available cash-on-hand than the Republicans who won the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary had in July 2007."
Conant was referring to former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee who won the Iowa caucuses and Sen. John McCain who won New Hampshire.
The $4.2 million is a combination of money raised for the primaries and general election. A candidate can't use general-election money if they're not the nominee.
