Straight Talk Express: Lobbying Firm on Wheels

Michael D. Shear and Jeffrey H. Birnbaum document all the lobbyists – including Charles Black – who are advisors to his campaign. But Team Clinton and Team Obama includes lots of lobbyists. The interesting part here is:

But even as Black provides a private voice and a public face for McCain, he also leads his lobbying firm, which offers corporate interests and foreign governments the promise of access to the most powerful lawmakers. Some of those companies have interests before the Senate and, in particular, the Commerce Committee, of which McCain is a member. Black said he does a lot of his work by telephone from McCain’s Straight Talk Express bus.
