APCO hires Dole to advisory role

WASHINGTON DC: APCO Worldwide has hired Bob Dole, the Republican candidate defeated by Bill Clinton in the 1996 presidential election, as a senior counsellor.

APCO said Dole, 81, would ‘provide strategic advice to clients on international and domestic legislative, policy and regulatory affairs as well as healthcare policy and related matters’.

Dole was elected to Congress in 1960 and to the Senate in 1968. He was Gerald Ford’s vice-presidential running mate in 1976.

It is not the first time APCO has turned to the US political establishment. In October it struck a deal with Henry Kissinger’s consultancy Kissinger Associates.
