Star Support for Tim Pawlenty


No matter what spin is placed on today’s off-year election, it will not temper the focus on 2012.

Minnesota Governor and presidential prospect Tim Pawlenty will kick-off his new leadership PAC on Wednesday in Minneapolis. with support from Jon Voight and Kelsey Grammer, each of whom will address the fund-raising gathering.

Voight is expected to speak about a simple message about Pawlenty in that the country “is at a clear crossroads.” Grammer cannot attend the event, but will call in to address the crowd by speaker phone.

Voight Pawlenty, who is not running for re-election for governor next year, announced earlier last month that he is forming a leadership PAC, called the Freedom First PAC, with money used to help other Republican candidates.

Tickets for the reception at the Hilton Minneapolis are $1,000 per person ($2,000 per couple); and for a reception and dinner, the price is $5,000 per person (or $10,000 per couple).

Voight and Grammer backed John McCain’s presidential bid last year.
