LOBBYIST CONTRIBUTIONS CAN GO A LONG WAY TO FUNDING A PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN...
BUT WITH EVERY CONTRIBUTION COMES ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY FOR SCRUTINY....
AND NOW WITH THE FIRST STREET RESEARCH GROUP RELEASING DETAILS ABOUT REPUBLICAN CONTENDERS MITT ROMNEY AND RICK SANTORUM'S TIES TO THE LOBBYING COMMUNITY, SOME SAY PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA MAY NOW HAVE THE AMMUNITION HE NEEDS TO TAKE ON HIS REPUBLICAN RIVAL IN THE FALL ...

STESNEY says: "I definitely think everywhere outside of DC, there is this connotation that being a Washington insider is not a good thing and so I think Obama will have the ability to make that argument if he so chooses. You know he has come out and he has ostracized the lobbying community here in DC, and in doing so he has the opportunity to do that. The Romney campaign is clearly welcoming the help and support of K street. He is opening himself up to the argument in the future that he is tied to the lobbying interest in Washington and the lobbying insiders here in DC."

THE REPORT LINKS MITT ROMNEY TO THE GREATEST NUMBER LOBBYISTS IN TWO THOUSAND ELEVEN -- THREE HUNDRED AND ELEVEN.
RICK SANTORUM IS A DISTANT SECOND WITH TWENTY-ONE.
