Former Sen. Blanche Lincoln joins DC Law Firm Alston and Bird

Former U.S. Senator Blanche Lincoln recently joined Alston & Bird, one of the nation's leading law firms, as a special policy adviser. 

She was first elected to the Senate in 1998 and was the young woman ever elected to the Senate at the age of 38. During her time in the Senate, she worked on rural and farming issues, and was the first woman to chair the Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry Committee. She lost her seat last November in a bitter fight with Rep. John Boozman of Arkansas. 

Many other members of Congress have joined Alston and Bird after leaving Capitol Hill including Bob Dole and Rep. Earl Pomeroy.
