One door will soon close for U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, but it sounds like another will quickly open for her.
As an outgoing senior member of Congress, Landrieu is a "hot commodity" among lobbying and consulting groups, according to a Politico report.
“I think K Street would welcome [Landrieu] with open arms,” Ivan Adler, a headhunter at The McCormick Group, said in the report. “She’s extremely attractive to K Street because of her favorable views on business.”
Landrieu's past work in the oil and gas sector is also appealing to private contractors, the report notes.
Baton Rouge Congressman Bill Cassidy soundly defeated Landrieu in her bid for a fourth term in the runoff election this past Saturday. Cassidy received 712,330 votes, or 55.9 percent of the ballots cast. Landrieu had 561,099 votes.
