Indian project in the works as Daschle joins firm

Former Sen. Tom Daschle (D-South Dakota) is joining the law firm of Alston & Bird, and he has an Indian-related project in the works,

Daschle will be a special adviser to the firm's legislative and public policy group. The job will allow him to pursue outside interests, such as the Indian project he will announce next month, according to news reports.

Daschle enjoyed strong tribal support but was defeated last November by Republican John Thune.
