Tim Pawlenty's exploratory committee, Pawlenty 2012, announced early Monday that Nick Ayers will lead the former Minnesota governor's presidential efforts. Ayers was the executive director of the Republican Governors Association.
In the announcement, the exploratory committee said Ayers, "has one of the strongest political resumes in American politics," and credits him with breaking all previous fundraising efforts at the Regional Governors Association.
Pawlenty 2012 says Ayers will re-locate to Minneapolis, where the Pawlenty campaign is headquartered, to take his new job on April 25.
