Whole Lott-a Shakin’

Posted January 4, 2008 at 6:18pm

Former Sens. Trent Lott (R-Miss.) and John Breaux (D-La.) will file paperwork this week to officially form a powerful lobbying partnership called The Breaux Lott Leadership Group. [IMGCAP(1)]

The Senate duo will set up their new lobbying and strategic planning shop at 607 14th St. NW, where they will be joined by their two sons, Chet Lott and John Breaux Jr., and former Lott chief of staff Bret Boyles. Boyles served as Lott’s top aide up until two weeks ago when Lott resigned his Senate seat just a year into his fourth six-year term.

Breaux and Lott served in Congress together for more than 30 years. Breaux retired from the Senate in 2004.
