Former Rep. Dan Lungren returns to lobbying

Former Rep. Dan Lungren (R-Calif.) has resurfaced as a lobbyist for the first time since losing his congressional seat in 2012, registering as an advocate for a firm called Washington Navigators.

His name appears on a lobbying disclosure form dated June 13 on behalf of Fairfax 2015, the organizing committee for the World Police and Fire Games.

Lungren and Brian Lopina — who worked as a chief of staff to former Rep. Ernest Istook (R-Okla.) — are both principals at the firm. This appears to be their first registration.

Washington Navigators says in its disclosure forms that it is seeking federal funding for the games, which will take place from June 26 to July 5 in 2015.

Fairfax 2015 estimates it will cost $20 million to put on the games, and that as of May 23, corporate sponsors had chipped in $2 million.

Fairfax County, Va., is hosting the olympic-style games, which will feature 12,000 athletes who are “public safety" officers from all over the world competing in 60 different sports around the Northern Virginia and Washington DC area.

Fairfax 2015 has formed an "honorary board" of public officials and corporate leaders that is being headed up by Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe.

Lungren, who spent a total of nearly two decades in Congress, has been registered as a lobbyist before. In 2001, he was hired at the law and lobby firm Venable, where his clients included Lockheed Martin, Verizon, Marriott International and several tribal groups.

Prior to that, he had represented a congressional district in Southern California for 10 years and then served as California’s attorney general from 1991 to 1998.
