John McCain’s political action committee. His deputy will be Katie McBreen, who helped Kansas Sen. Jerry Moran win during last year’s mid-term elections. In 2008, she worked for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney during his presidential bid.

The 16-person team will be assigned specific states and regions, which will help Pawlenty reach beyond the much smaller sums he had to raise during his gubernatorial campaigns. Still, his advisors note that money will not decided who wins the GOP presidential nomination, and that Romney will most likely raise and spend the most money.
