The Partisan Ties of Lobbying Firms

Have you ever wondered about the “The Partisan Ties of Lobbying Firms”? If so, please check out my paper by that title, which is co-authored with Zander Furnas and Tim LaPira, and is available here:

It will be presented on September 1 at the APSA Annual Meeting. Among other things, we find that Republican lobbying firms experienced a bump in revenues when the Republicans took control of the House in 2010, but not when they captured the Senate in 2014.
