CLEVELAND - Former congressman Steven LaTourette of Ohio will run a law firm's new lobbying subsidiary in the nation's capital along with his wife.
The move was announced Tuesday by the McDonald Hopkins law firm, which has offices in Chicago, Cleveland, Columbus, Detroit, Miami and West Palm Beach, Fla.
McDonald Hopkins Government Strategies will have offices overlooking Capitol Hill.
LaTourette, a Republican from Lake County northeast of Cleveland, served 18 years in Congress. He didn't seek re-election last year in frustration with political gridlock.
LaTourette's wife, Jennifer, has worked for a Washington lobbying firm for the past 10 years.
