Roll Call – Haley Jr. takes VP lobbying job at Dad’s old shop

Haley Barbour exited the lobbying world years ago for the glamour of electoral politics, but he still has blood on K Street.

In January, Barbour’s 31-year-old son became a vice president at BGR Group, the lobbying and public affairs shop that his father started back in 1991.

Known as Reeves Barbour, Haley Reeves Barbour Jr. came to Washington, D.C., just about the time that his father headed back to Mississippi to run the state as governor. Reeves Barbour worked on Capitol Hill for the Commerce Department during the George W. Bush administration, and he spent the last Congress as an in-house lobbyist for tobacco company Reynolds American.
