The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports that Tim Pawlenty is stepping down next month as President and CEO of the Financial Services Roundtable, a job that he held since September 2012. Pawlenty came to the trade group after serving as governor of Minnesota from 2003 to 2011, and his move raised talk that he would seek his old job.
 
“As has been publicly reported, I am exploring that as an option but certainly haven’t made any decisions in that regard,” Pawlenty said in response to a question of his future. He is scheduled to meet next week with potential donors to discuss his viability as a candidate.
 
Pawlenty’s 2006 re-election marked the last time that a Republican won a statewide race in Minnesota. He launched an unsuccessful bid for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination and later served as co-chairman of Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign before taking the helm at the Financial Services Roundtable.
