Report highlights which lobbying firms back Romney in 2012
Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney is the clear front-runner in picking up support from lobbyists at some of K Streets most profitable firms, according to a report released last week by First Street Research Group.
Thats based on the number of lobbyists in those firms who are advising Romneys campaign, collecting or bundling contributions for him, and contributing money to the campaign. First Street, the political intelligence unit of CQ Press, compiled data from Federal Election Commission filings and conducted independent research on individual lobbyists who Romney and Rick Santorum have named campaign advisers. Santorum has not listed any bundlers.

[ Romney leads Santorum in lobbyist support ]
WHAT is it they know about Willard his republicans voters don’t know?..
Must be something!... They must know something... What could that be?..
Federal givernment Lobbyists are fully into graft, overcharging and cost over runs..
They don’t hire lobbyists because they are STUPID.
We arent hiring a Lobbyist-in-Chief
If you scout around the internet you can find information on Santorum’s lobbying history.
He and Romney are big government guys, though not the extremes of BHO2.
Same with Newt.
But, But... I thought Romney was the “outsider” and Santorum was the “Washington insider”!!!!
That is a lie, a Democrat talking point. Newt was NEVER a lobbyist!
So you say. This guy says different.
Funny Newt would set up shop on K Street of all the places in the world to do so.
You are a shill for Obama. Newt Gingrich owned a consulting business.
How pathetic you must resort to lies.
Yeah right. Just like Freddie and Fannie hired him as a “historian”. You set up your offices on K Street and employ lobbyists for one reason. It is an irrelevant point anyway. He is out of this race anyway.
You brought up Newt, not I. But since you did, I will not disappoint you, you Obama lover.
Obama is publicly attacking Newt Gingrich because he fears the ideas Newt proposes. Meanwhile the two idiots, Romeny and Santorum, are gaffing up a storm.
Santorum and Romney are beating each others brains out and both are spewing verbal gaffes that sicken Republicans. Why? Because neither looks or sounds Presidential. Both look terribly foolish, and it reflects poorly on the Republican Party.
Voter turnout is down.
Santorum and Romney are destroying each other rather than attacking Obama. Their supporters are insistent - they will never vote for the other guy! These two candidates are burning their bridges, which is really stupid as it will be necessary for Republicans to coalesce around a nominee in order to run against Obama this fall.
The two sides will have to come together which is unlikely, OR there will be a compromise candidate. Can you quess who that will be?
The only candidate who is taking the Republican war to the opposition is Gingrich. Obama knows who his real opponent is this fall, and it is neither Santorum nor Romney.
Gingrich taught strategy at military colleges for nearly thirty years. He can be patient and wait for the convention.
So you go right ahead and smear Gingrich. You are working for Obama, not for conservatives.
I brought up Newt to point out that your guy has issues too that are far more murky than working for the WWE like Rick did. The rest of your post about how Newt is somehow still relevant in this race is pure fantasy. Did you see the results last night? Newt couldn’t even break 20% in a place he campaigned in and was part of this so called southern strategy. Some strategerist. This dream that Newt is somehow going to roll into the convention with any bargaining power is rich. He can’t even win in Red states.
Dream on, Lazlo. Romney is picking up info on Santorum, like the crapola below. They will literally bomb one another’s chances at the convention.
Jack Abramoff had ties to Santorum. See some of Abramoff’s July 1996 billing invoices here where he meets with Santorum:
Can you spell c-o-r-r-u-p-t?
The fact you’re targeting Gringrich is amusing, like Obama targeting Gingrich. If he isn’t a threat, why bother?
You expose yourself, Obot.
LOL. Yeah. You are digging up some Commie Leftist site with not one shred of evidence. Good luck with that. BTW, you seem to be the one who wants to have Obummer win. You are backing the candidate that consistently polls worse in head to heads with Obummer. Explain how he is going to win when he can’t win Primary states and does terribly against Obummer?
It doesn’t matter where the truth originates; the information is damaging nonetheless.
You and Steelfish use Democratic Party talking points against Newt Gingrich all the time.
Santorum and Romney are destroying one another. By the time the convention rolls around, they will have fractured the party so severely a compromise candidate will be chosen.
The elites seem to like Jeb Bush. We shall see in August.
