Republican Tim Pawlenty’s exploratory committee has announced the key players who will make up Pawlenty’s national finance team. The announcement comes as Pawlenty’s team gears up for a major-donor fundraising effort. “We only raised a little seed money in March; the fundraising effort will begin in earnest in April,” one Pawlenty advisor said.

Pawlenty’s new finance consulting team includes 13 women, two men and one financial consultant group, all with impressive fundraising credentials. Several on the list have experience working with Presidential campaigns including 2008 GOP Presidential candidates, John McCain and Mitt Romney.

At the top of the list is National Finance Director, Brian Haley, who most recently served as the National Finance Director for Pawlenty’s PAC, Freedom First. Haley also helped develop the national finance strategy for the McCain-Palin ticket in 2008.
