Each August, we take a break from our policy focused conversations and host interviews with friends and leaders we admire. This week, Travis Wussow sits down with Bill Wichterman of Covington & Burling LLP. Bill’s story is a fascinating one of following Jesus to the mission field and back into politics. He has enjoyed decades in Washington, leading in both government and campaigns, and now as an outside expert.
Bill Wichterman is a non-lawyer Senior Advisor in Covington’s Public Policy practice. Prior to joining Covington, Bill served as Special Assistant to President George W. Bush and as the President’s personal liaison to the conservative movement. Before serving in the White House, he held a number of senior staff-level positions on Capitol Hill, including as Policy Advisor to Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, and Chief of Staff to Congressman Joe Pitts and Congressman Bill Baker. Mr. Wichterman also has inside experience in congressional and presidential campaigns, serving most recently as a chief advisor to the Santorum 2012 presidential campaign, and has previously been a key staff participant on the Republican Convention’s Platform Committee.
