The move by Quayle, above, to Clark Hill PLC comes less than a year after his first and only term ended in a tight primary loss to fellow Republican Schweikert.
Ashley Ridlon, a former legislative assistant to ex-Sen. Blanche Lincoln, D-Ark., has moved to the Bipartisan Policy Center Advocacy Network, where she will manage advocacy efforts on health and budget issues.
Ridlon is new to the world of think tanks, but is no stranger to health policy. She helped develop health insurance provisions in the Affordable Care Act during her five years under Lincoln and more recently led hospital and care initiatives at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
“With rising health care costs and budget issues consuming debate in Congress, Ashley’s issue expertise and knowledge of the policy process will serve BPR very well,” President Jason Grumet said in a statement.
