Tim Pawlenty to Head Bank Lobbying Group

September 20, 2012 Updated Sep 20, 2012 at 10:31 AM CDT

Former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty will be leaving the Romney Campaign to lobby for the financial services industry.

The Financial Services Roundtable announced today that Pawlenty has been named their new Chief Executive Officer.

The group is a U.S. Bank Lobbying group that represents JP Morgan Chase and Wells Fargo among many other well known large banks.

Pawlenty stepped down as co–chairman of Mitt Romney's presidential campaign around the same time his new title was announced.

The group's website says they are a bi-partisan organization so Pawlenty's role in Romney's campaign would be inappropriate.
