In an ironic twist, a D.C.-based law firm and lobbying shop whose head lobbyist was connected to a million-dollar ad campaign that helped defeat former Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.) last year has approached Daschle about joining the firm.
The firm is McDermott, Will & Emery, whose top lobbyist, Stan Anderson, heads its government-relations function.
Although Daschle is not a lawyer, he could be brought on by McDermott to help land meetings with Senate Democrats, which apparently would place him under Anderson’s wing.
