They have long-standing relations with senior officials in the Bush administration, as well as with Members of Congress and their staff on both sides of the aisle."[2]

With the renaming of the firm is 2007, BlueWater added its first Democratic partner in what was billed as a move towards a "bipartisan shop." [3] Eric Washburn was previously legislative director and senior advisor to then-Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle.[4]
