Pawlenty to visit states that start with "I" this weekend
April 16, 2010 — 9:55am
There's an I in Tim and two in politics and one at the start of both of the states Gov. Tim Pawlenty will visit this weekend.
He will raise money for the Lake County Republicans in Illinois Friday night at a $100 a plate fundraiser. Invitees were welcomed to contribute up to $10,000.
Saturday afternoon, Pawlenty will touch down in Iowa, his second visit to that early voting state in the last several months, to speak to the Iowans for Tax Relief's "2010 Iowa Taxpayers Day" gathering in Des Moines.
No signs that he's got visits planned to either Indiana or Idaho this weekend but reporters don't always find out in advance about his out-of-state trips so maybe he'll complete the quartet soon.
Donald Trump shamed a former beauty pageant winner Friday for her sexual history and encouraged Americans to check out what he called her "sex tape," in an early-morning tweet-storm that dragged him further away from his campaign's efforts to broaden its appeal to women.
The 270-acre complex is proposed for the shore of Star Lake, home to sensitive wildlife breeding grounds, cabins in families for generations and a private hunting club used by some of Minnesota's oldest-money families.
