Sean Duffy joins lobbying firm after leaving Congress

Former Rep. Sean Duffy is joining a prominent lobbying firm following his resignation from Congress nearly two months ago.

The Wisconsin Republican will serve as the senior counsel for the BGR Group, a GOP-leaning lobbying firm, and will head up its financial services practice, BGR said in a news release. Former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barber is a founding partner.

In a statement to Politico, Duffy said he was “eager to grow a financial services practice built on my experience working on behalf of the people with the administration and federal regulators."

The firm's lobbyists represent corporate clients that include Comcast and Pfizer, as well as the governments of Bahrain, Bangladesh, India and South Korea, the politics website reported.

Duffy, 48, the former chairman of the House Financial Services Committee’s housing subcommittee, resigned from Congress in September. He said he wanted to spend more time with his family after learning his then-unborn child had been found to have a heart condition.

He was first elected to Congress in 2010 and has been a staunch supporter of President Trump.

Before entering politics, Duffy starred in MTV's "The Real World: Boston" and served as a district attorney in Wisconsin.
