An aide to Gov. Tim Pawlenty has confirmed to The Daily Caller that the former Minnesota Governor will officially announce he is running for president at an event in Iowa on Monday. AP broke the story earlier Friday morning

Pawlenty is holding a Town Hall at the State of Iowa: Historical Building. His wife will introduce him.

The move comes in the week following Pawlenty’s “kick off fundraiser” on Wednesday, at which he raised over $800,000.
