Tim Pawlenty Retires Campaign Debt

Richard Ellis/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- With some help, Tim Pawlenty is out of debt.

The former Minnesota governor officially closed his 2012 presidential campaign Tuesday, nearly eight months after dropping out of the race in August. Pawlenty reported his campaign being almost $454,000 in debt a month and a half after his exit, with about $20,000 in the bank.

Pawlenty has now paid it off, with the assistance of Mitt Romney’s supporters, fellow Republican politicians and his own former staffers.

Pawlenty exited the race Aug. 14, and endorsed Romney Sept. 12.
