Wes Clark for Growth Energy

Chuck Zimmerman

A post on Ben Smith’s Blog, part of Politico, says that Growth Energy will be announcing General Wes Clark as their new Co-Chairman. We’ll be on the announcement call to confirm this.

General Wes Clark has signed on as a front man for the ethanol industry , a source familiar with his plans said, putting him in the trenches of a high-stakes, if somewhat obscure, Washington lobbying battle.

He’ll announce at a Marriott Wardman Park press conference tomorrow that he’ll be the co-chair of Growth Energy, an ethanol industry group that’s been engaged in a fascinating fight with the Grocery Manufacturers Association over, more or less, the price of corn.
