Tim Pawlenty Ditches Romney Campaign For Lobbying Gig
Matt | On 20, Sep 2012
Amid all of this “47 percent” controversy, it’s never been a better time to exit Mitt Romney’s campaign. Former GOP presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty seemed to agree with that sentiment.
Effective immediately, Pawlenty will no longer serve as national co-chair for the Romney campaign. This is a role he has held for over a year. He took it shortly after he quit the race in 2011 because of his poor showing the Iowa straw poll.
Pawlenty is using his Republican notoriety for a major come-up. He will become chairman of the Financial Services Roundtable, a well-known Wall Street lobbying firm. According to the Boston Globe, they are made up of over 100 banking, insurance, and investment firms that manage $92.7 trillion in assets.
All of the press releases and news articles would have you believe that the shakeup in Romney’s campaign are solely from “new opportunities” being realized. Ha! I think slowly people realize that Romney may lose due mostly to his own gaffes and inability to connect with enough people.
ANSWER IN THE COMMENTS SECTION:
Do you think Pawlenty’s exit from Team Romney is a sign of more resignations to come before November 6?
