Louisiana Gov. Jindal to raise money for Minn. GOP
St. Paul, Minn. (AP) — Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is headed north to help Minnesota Republicans raise money with Gov. Tim Pawlenty, a probable 2012 presidential candidate.
Minnesota GOP spokesman Mark Drake confirmed Jindal's visit after The Associated Press obtained a copy of the invitation for the Sept. 13 event at the Minneapolis Hilton.
Jindal is the main draw for a Republican Party of Minnesota reception that starts at $1,000 a person. Republican gubernatorial nominee Tom Emmer announced through his campaign that Jindal will raise money for him during a $500 per person reception.
Pawlenty and state GOP Chairman Tony Sutton are heading the event, with U.S. Reps. Michele Bachmann and Erik Paulsen also listed on the invitation.
