Former Democratic Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh has taken a new position with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Bayh's new position will be to analyze and promote ways to reduce government regulation, according to iwatch News.

Republican Andrew Card, a former chief of staff to President George W. Bush, will also work as an outside adviser to the chamber, the nation's largest pro-business advocacy group.

Bayh says his new job will not involve lobbying.

Bayh decided against seeking a third term in the Senate in 2010. Since then, he has become a partner in the Washington office of the McGuireWoods law firm, a senior adviser to a New York-based private equity firm and a political commentator on Fox News.


  • that makes no sense
    "Bayh says his new job will not involve lobbying." Huh? Lobbying the reason for the Chamber exists today. That's like me saying that I'm going to work for Chrysler but I won't be involved with car manufacturing.
  • Good Riddance
    Mr. Bayh.

    Have fun lobbying as a republican...hopefully you can shed your sheeps clothing now.

    Good Riddance!
