Pawlenty announces New Hampshire endorsements

Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty announced an extensive list of endorsements for Granite State Republican candidates. All of the endorsements included contributions to the campaigns from Pawlenty’s Freedom First PAC, totaling $32,000 – second only to Mitt Romney’s PAC, which contributed $40,000. Pawlenty did not endorse candidates during the often-contentious primary season, and in keeping with that spirit has avoided picking favorites by giving equally in each candidate category.

Coinciding with the release of the endorsements, Pawlenty announced a planned trip to NH on September 30th to campaign for congressional candidate Frank Guinta and gubernatorial candidate John Stephen. The Midwesterner has been a relatively frequent presence in the Granite State lately, most recently sending a team of staffers to assist the NH GOP during last week’s primary election. This likely won’t be the prospective 2012 presidential candidate’s last stop in the Granite State before Election Day, as he now has 43 reasons to make an appearance.

See below for the full list of endorsements and contributions amounts:

• John Stephen – NH Governor – $1,000
