ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Republican Tim Pawlenty's nascent presidential campaign is settling into a high-rise office building in downtown Minneapolis, the planned headquarters of an anticipated White House run.

An adviser to Pawlenty confirmed Tuesday that the former Minnesota governor's exploratory committee has leased space and is moving into in the 27-story building. Pawlenty's campaign will occupy 5,000 sq. feet on the ninth floor.

The lease was first reported by the Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal. The newspaper quoted a property broker as saying Pawlenty's team preferred the site because it is partially furnished, close to a light-rail line that runs to the airport and has many restaurants and amenities nearby.

Terms were not disclosed.

Pawlenty told radio host Dennis Miller earlier Tuesday that a full-blown presidential announcement is coming "shortly."
