Tim Pawlenty, the Republican governor of the Gopher State, sure is making it look more and more like he’s going to go for the GOP nod for president. The 39th Minnesota governor, whose June 2009 announcement that he wouldn’t seek another term was the initial tickler that he'd like to be the 45th president, has raised almost $800,000 via his federal political action committee and two state-based organizations during the past three months, according to The Fix political blog in The Washington Post.

Pawlenty, Minnesota, governor, president, 2012Blogger Chris Cillizza noted that Pawlenty’s fundraising is “the latest in a series of increasingly obvious signs of his presidential ambitions for 2012."

The lion’s share of the July1-Sept. 30 haul, $565,000, came from Pawlenty’s Freedom First federal PAC, while his Iowa-based state PAC pulled in $135,000 and his similar account in New Hampshire snagged $86,000.

That brings Pawlenty’s cha-ching total for the year to more than $1.8 million through Freedom First, writes Cillizza, who confides parenthetically: “Pawlenty allies argue that his third quarter fundraising totals are even stronger than they might appear at first glance because he spent a week in Iraq and Afghanistan and also led a week-long trade mission to China during the period.”
