NEW HILL STAFF PROGRESSIVES GROUP LAUNCHED: Roll Call reports new group seeking Lefty activists to work on Hill staffs has been launched and already has more than 250 members, including at least 100 senior staffers.

Funny, I thought there was already a group attracting left-wing organizers and agitators, the House Democratic Caucus. Don’t laugh, though, as Hill staffers on both sides of the aisle have immense, though mostly unseen, influence on the course of things in Congress.

Historical Footnote: The Republican Study Committee (RSC) was organized in 1973 as a counter to the original group for left-wing staff types, the Democratic Study Group (DSG), which was launched in 1959 and went kaput in the wake of the Contract with America.
