DFL Chairman Ken Martin on Tim Pawlenty’s High-Dollar Florida Fundraiser

[ST. PAUL, MN] – Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Party Chairman Ken Martin today released the following statement after Tim Pawlenty sent out invitations to a $500-per-plate fundraiser in Naples, Florida. The invitations were prepared and paid for by the “Pawlenty for Governor Committee.”

“A $500-per-plate fundraiser in Florida? Not exactly the best way to kick off your campaign to be governor of Minnesota. But after years making millions on Wall Street, I guess he couldn’t be bothered to first announce his candidacy to the people he hopes elect him.”
