ABC News’ Matthew Jaffe (@matthewbjaffe) reports:
Al Hubbard, a former director of the National Economic Council under President George W. Bush, has left Tim Pawlenty’s presidential campaign.
Hubbard in June was named chairman of Pawlenty’s policy efforts, but today the campaign said he was no longer serving in that position. Pawlenty spokesman Alex Conant said Hubbard “became busy with work and is not operating in the policy role.”
“We’re grateful he gave us the maximum contribution,” Conant said.
On June 10 Hubbard was introduced as Pawlenty’s national policy chairman. In the announcement that day, Hubbard said that “Pawlenty’s positive vision for America is exactly what our nation needs to get back on the right track… he is the right man to lead us toward a brighter future.”
