The Revolving Door Swings Opens for Dems

After years of being shut out of prominent lobbying jobs, Democrats are finding a better reception on K Street

Is the Tuesday Group the organized response from Democrats and progressives to the K Street Project?

Organizer Roger Hickey, who is also co-director of the Campaign for America’s Future, says it isn’t.

The Tuesday meetings, which are closed to the general public and the press, include labor, environmental and women’s groups who gather every two weeks in an undisclosed location to coordinate their efforts.

But Hickey says they aren’t interested in recreating the famed Wednesday meetings organized by Grover Norquist and attended by prominent GOP players or duplicating their strategy to stack industry groups with loyalists.
