Representative John Boehner may have won the race for House majority leader by running as the reform candidate, but his K Street ties are among the most extensive in Congress. In January, House Republicans picked Boehner (R-Ohio) to replace former majority leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas). Boehner’s elevation comes at an especially good time for Terry Holt, who opened his own communications shop, Holt Strategies, at the beginning of the year. Holt, best known as the spokesman for George Bush’s 2004 reelection campaign, was Boehner’s press secretary at the House Republican Conference from 1996 to 1999. Meanwhile, management at Cassidy & Associates may be shaken up because of Boehner’s upset win over Representative Roy Blunt (R-Missouri), who had been favored to become the next majority leader. Gregg Hartley, Cassidy’s chief operating officer and a former chief of staff for Blunt, openly campaigned for his old boss. On the other hand, Christy Evans, a Cassidy lobbyist, worked in Boehner’s office from 1993 to 1998. Marc Lampkin, also a former Boehner staffer and now at Quinn Gillespie & Associates, was mum on how his former boss’s win will affect his business. “I haven’t even thought about that,” he said. Other Boehner staffers-turned-lobbyists include John Fish, a former legislative director now at R.J. Reynolds Tobacco, and Brenda Reese, now at Bockorny Petrizzo. � Andy Metzger
