Iowa Independent: Iowa native, former Bush political director Sara Taylor signs on with Pawlenty

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty has not confirmed that he will launch a
bid for president in 2012, but all signs point to 'yes.' His political
action committee is officially launching today, and it has hired an
Iowa native who was credited with building a winning strategy for
George W. Bush in the Hawkeye State before being implicated in a
scandal involving the firing of U.S. Attorneys, allegedly for
political reasons. Sara Taylor, daughter of an Iowa pipe fitter turned
state legislator, was just 24 in 1998 when she was tapped by Karl Rove
and Bush to lead their Iowa strategy. The strong foundation in Iowa
led to her being dispatched to Florida to help with the campaign's
controversial recount efforts, and then to an oversight position in
the Midwest political office led by Ken Mehlman.
