Former Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-Va.), who recently lost her re-election bid, is now a senior advisor in Baker Donelson’s Government Relations and Public Policy Group.

Comstock will work at the firm’s Washington, D.C. office.

{mosads}Comstock represented a D.C. suburb and served two terms in Congress before losing to Democratic state Rep. Jennifer Wexton by 12 points last November. The Republican was on the Transportation and Infrastructure, House Administration and the Science, Space, and Technology committees. Before Congress, she worked at the Department of Justice and on former President George W. Bush’s campaign, as well as now-Sen. Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign.

“I am excited to join Baker Donelson and bring my decades of policy experience in the legislative, administrative, and private sector arenas, as well as a lifetime of relationships, to provide strategic guidance on building winning coalitions and strategies,” Comstock said in a statement.

She will also be a fellow at the Harvard Institute of Politics this spring.

Comstock joins a long list of former Republican lawmakers who are headed to K Street. Retired Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (Fla.) and Lamar Smith (Texas), for example, are working at Akin Gump.
