DNC Chair Hopeful Spent Past Eight Years as Podesta Group Lobbyist


Well Bernie folks, good luck.

(From The Washington Free Beacon)

South Carolina Democrat Jaime Harrison has left his position as a top lobbyist for the Podesta Group as he attempts to rally support behind his bid to be chairman of the Democratic National Committee.

Harrison, currently chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party, announcedshortly after the election that he was pursuing the top spot at the national party. His candidacy received a major boost when Rep. James Clyburn (S.C.)—the number three Democrat in the House and Harrison’s former boss—sent a letter to DNC members endorsing him for the role.

Harrison got his start in politics in 2003 as a staffer in Clyburn’s House office and rose through the congressional ranks until 2008, when he left to join the Podesta Group.
