Kenneth B. Mehlman, the former chairman of the Republican National Committee, will return to Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld as a partner in the Washington office. Mehlman was elected in 2005 as the 62nd chair of the Republican National Committee and held the position for two years. As the national spokesperson for the party, he developed close working relationships with members of Congress, governors and business leaders across the nation and around the world. Mehlman began his political career as legislative director to Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, and subsequently became chief of staff to Rep. Kay Granger, R-Texas. He served as national field director for Bush-Cheney 2000, helping to organize the Iowa caucuses, and from 2001 to 2003 was the White House political director, helping to plan and execute the historic 2002 midterm elections in which for the first time since 1934, the president’s party gained seats in its first midterm election. From 2003 to 2004 he served as campaign manager for Bush-Cheney ’04. The firm’s founder, Ambassador Robert S. Strauss, who served as former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, said he is looking forward to Mehlman’s return. “We are a diversified and bipartisan firm, and Ken fits in perfectly.”
