Dan Coats and lobbying

The Post examines Dan Coats’ candidacy and his past work as a lobbyist.

The former senator has had scores of corporate lobbying clients over the years, including health-care firms (Amgen, United Health Group, the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America), bailout recipients (Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch) and communications companies (BellSouth, Sprint Nextel, Verizon). Another past client is Cerberus Capital Management, where Dan Quayle — whose seat Coats took over in the Senate — is a top executive.
