WASHINGTON (AP) – Republican presidential hopeful Tim Pawlenty is set to report that he raised $4.5 million in the last three months and has some $2 million in the bank.

The former Minnesota governor’s campaign says it will report about $1.4 million in cash on hand for the primary contest. Another $600,000 will be available only if he wins the GOP nomination.

Friday is the deadline for presidential contenders to file their second quarter reports with the Federal Election Commission. The reports – showing their donors, spending and debt – will be early barometers of each campaign’s viability.

Pawlenty is also announcing a slate of finance co-chairmen, hoping to highlight his campaign’s strength ahead of an August straw poll in Ames, Iowa, the next real test in the presidential contest’s early days.
