The Daschle Group, a Public Policy Advisory of Baker Donelson, is pleased to announce that Tom Daschle and Nathan Daschle have been listed in The Hill's "Top Lobbyists 2017: Hired Guns," which published November 2, 2017.

According to the article, available here, "The former senator and his son have become major players on the lobbying scene."

Senator Daschle is the Founder and CEO of The Daschle Group, which was launched in 2014. Senator Daschle has participated in the development and debate of almost every major public policy issue of the last three decades. He has also emerged as a leading thinker on climate change, food security and renewable energy policy.

In 1978, Senator Daschle was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, where he served for eight years. In 1986, he was elected to the U.S. Senate and was chosen as Senate Democratic Leader in 1994. He is one of the longest serving Senate Democratic leaders in history and one of only two to serve twice as both Majority and Minority Leader.

Nathan Daschle, the president and COO of The Daschle Group, leverages his background in politics and the law to advise clients on the best strategies for reaching their political and policy objectives. In addition to overseeing operations at The Daschle Group, Nathan leads the firm's international practice, where he advises numerous foreign governments, political parties, and private entities throughout Europe, Asia, and Central and South America.

Previously, Nathan served as the executive vice president for political strategy at Clear Channel Media & Entertainment (now iHeart Media), where he ran a business unit dedicated to political advertising. From 2007 to 2010, Nathan was the executive director of the Democratic Governors Association (DGA), where he managed a $50 million annual budget and staff of more than 20. Over the four-year period in which he led DGA, the organization set numerous fundraising records and won a majority of its targeted races.
