Shortly after ending his term as governor, Mitt Romney rolled out his finance Team Co-Chairs Roster and opened his Headquarters.

Hotline notices a few important names on his Roster:


But one new name stands out: Ted Welch, the Tennessee investment banker who masterminded Sen. Lamar Alexander's (R-TN) $20 million haul in 1996 and who, since he the RNC's finance chair in 1977, has been one of the party's most proficient and generous fundraisers.

Welch was courted by a bevy of Republican presidential candidates after ex-Maj. Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) decided not to run. He reportedly was upset that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) backed Sen. Trent Lott (R-MS) for the post of minority whip instead of Alexander.

Another major figure in Republican party finance circles is Mel Sembler, a former ambassador to Italy. Sembler is also a former RNC finance chair and was for six year the RNC's national committee man from Florida, meaning that he's on a first-name basis with virtually every single major Republican donor in the money-rich state.

Also on the list: Mark Guzzetta, a Florida developer who is close to the Bush family, and to ex-FL Gov. Jeb Bush, in particular, and Tom Tellefsen, a Bush Pioneer who is president of Tellefsen investments in CA.

Christopher Collins, Managing Member of First Atlantic Capital, LLC, Massachusetts
Mark Guzzetta, President of Gemstone Development, Florida
Jon Huntsman Sr., Chairman of the Huntsman Corporation, Utah
John Miller, Founding Member of National Beef Packing Company, LLC, Kansas City, Missouri
John Rakolta, Jr., Chairman and CEO of Walbridge Aldinger, Michigan
