With the acquisition of yet another former Members of Congress, the conservative think tank American Enterprise Institute (AEI) is becoming the go-to think tank for former GOP legislative talent.
AEI announced this week that former Senator Jim Talent (R-MO) is joining the think tank as a Senior Fellow and will serve as Director of the National Security 2020 project, a new program from AEI's Marilyn Ware Center for Security Studies.
Last year Talent, who is 2007 joined the Heritage Foundation as a Distinguished Fellow specializing in military affairs and conservative solutions to poverty, wrote a report with former Sen. Jon Kyl, now a Visiting Fellow at AEI, titled "A Strong and Focused National Security Strategy."
Last year, Kyl joined AEI along with former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT).
Will Eric Cantor become the next former congressman to join AEI?
