Former Rep. Brad Miller (D-NC) Joins CAP

The liberal Center for American Progress (CAP) announced this week that former Rep. Brad Miller (D-NC) will join the think tank as a Senior Fellow for Economic Policy.

Miller will be joining many former Members of Congress who have recently joined think tanks, including Rep. David Dreier (R-CA), who just joined the Brookings Institution as a Distinguished Fellow.

Here is a previous Think Tank Watch post (which is updated periodically) on Members of Congress who are connected to think tanks.

Center for American Progress (CAP) was recently ranked as the 30th best think tank in the world by the annual University of Pennsylvania think tank rankings.  It was ranked as the 11th best think tank in the US.  It was also ranked as the 2nd best think tank in the world in terms of best use of the Internet or social media.
