Democratic Lobbyists Head Back to Congress
The march of Democratic lobbyists back to Capitol Hill has officially begun with two senior lobbyists returning as top aides in the House and Senate.
Christopher McCannell, a lobbyist at Quinn Gillespie & Associates, will be joining newly elected Rep. Mike McMahon (D-N.Y.) as his chief of staff. McCannell joined Quinn Gillespie in 2007 after spending eight years as chief of staff to Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.). Luke Albee, who has been at Ricchetti Inc. for nearly four years, will be Sen.-elect Mark Warners (D-Va.) top staffer. Albee joined Ricchetti after working for Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) for 20 years, most recently as his chief of staff.
