Tim Pawlenty's Florida finance team



Likely presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty landed a top Florida fundraiser, Ann Herberger of Miami, as a national finance consultant. A longtime Bush family fundraiser, Herberger worked for Mitt Romney in 2008. In Florida she'll be working along with fundraiser Gretchen Picotte in Orlando, a veteran of Rick Scott, Rudy Giuliani and Mel Martinez fundraising.

"I love governors because they are the CEOs of the states, and the buck stops with them. I think Tim Pawlenty is the right guy at the right time," Herberger said.
