Breaux ‘would love’ to have Lott lobby with him.

Yesterday, ThinkProgress noted former Sen. John Breaux (D-LA) was leaving his current position at lobbying powerhouse Patton Boggs to open up his own lobbying shop. The move fueled speculation that Breaux and his good friend, retiring Sen. Trent Lott (R-MS), may be going into business together, which may have been one of the motivations for Lott’s early retirement. Speaking to The New York Times today, Breaux confirmed that he is “going to open up” his “own shop” and that he “would love to have Trent involved.”
