Lott Opens New Lobbying Shop
Surprise, surprise. From Roll Call
Putting weeks of speculation to rest, former Sens. Trent Lott (R-Miss.) and John Breaux (D-La.) confirmed Friday they plan to file paperwork next week to form a powerful lobbying partnership called The Breaux Lott Leadership Group....
âThis is not a well kept secret to say the least,â Lott said. âWeâve worked together for many years in the House and Senate and in the leadership together in the Senate. We thought it was a good opportunity and a fun opportunity to work together.
âWe start next Monday and weâre hoping to find some business.â...
While Breaux left the Senate three years ago, Lott abruptly resigned his seat late last year â a move that fueled speculation that he wanted to leave his post before new, stricter lobbying restrictions took effect.
