Dodd says he won't turn to lobbying

Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) said he will not start lobbying after his 36-year Senate career ends this year.

In an interview with the CT Mirror, Dodd, chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, said he has not yet decided what he'll do next year, but was firm that he would not start a lobbying career as many prominent lawmakers have done in recent years.

"No lobbying, no lobbying," he said in an interview.
