Former Democratic Ohio governor and former congressman Ted Strickland revealed that being a high-paid liberal lobbyist was his “dream job.”

“I want to tell you, I had a job last year that was a dream job, paid me more money than I’ve ever made in my life,” Strickland said Sunday during a campaign stop at Vern Riffe Vocational School in Piketon, Ohio.

Strickland, who is running for Senate in 2016, was referring to his work as the president of the Center for American Progress Action Fund, the lobbying arm of John Podesta’s left-wing think tank the Center for American Progress. The group spent $40,000 on lobbying in 2014.
