What Type Of Clients Should Hire Larry Craig As Their Lobbyist?

Larry Craig, the Idaho Republican shamed out of the Senate Kduring Bathroomgate, is now making a few bucks lobbying his old lawmaker pals. To be sure Craig’s firm New West Strategies, which he formed with partner Michael O. Ware, won’t confirm it’s actually lobbying public officials, which would require formal registration to comply with federal regulations; for now it just “provides strategic advocacy, advice and guidance to companies, trade associations and other clients on a broad range of federal and state legislative and regulatory issues.” And no wonder: Look at the C.V. Craig posted on the site. So what might Craig be good at pushing in the halls of power? Maybe convincing regulators there are no downsides to expanding JFK Airport in New York.
