Sen. Dodd Mingles With Lobbyists at Retreat

Sunday, 19 Jul 2009 08:34 PM

According to The Hill newspaper, Dodd was present for the annual Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee retreat on Martha's Vineyard, where a number of high-powered lobbyists also were in attendance.

Dodd, D-Conn., is promoting his anti-lobbyist credentials on his campaign Web site, where a voiceover for one video states: "You almost have to feel sorry for the poor lobbyists. They just can't get Chris Dodd to listen to them," reports The Hill.
