Pawlenty attends McCain’s economic meeting

Gov. Pawlenty was in Cleveland, OH this morning to attend John McCain’s economic meet-up. USA Today has this snapshot:

McCain, trailing in national polls, spoke Monday after meeting with his economic advisers, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who ran against McCain in the primaries; Stanford University professor John Taylor; and two former vice presidential possibilities, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and one-time CEO of eBay, Meg Whitman.

The Arizona senator said he and his opponent “both disagree with President Bush on economic policy.” The difference, McCain said, is that he believes government spending is too high, while Obama believes taxes are too low.

“It’s a difference of millions of jobs,” McCain said, flanked by his economic team, adding that “Americans are beginning to figure that out.”
