"Deregulation with a reliance on huge wealth to do right by the people has never worked," Domina said during a telephone interview.

The resumes of Sasse (R, NE) and Cotton (D, AR) do not exactly fit the profile of populists. That is especially true for the lines dedicated to the Boston Consulting Group and McKinsey & Company, firms that advise corporations on strategy, efficiency and ways to increase profitability.
In Sasse's case, he has used ties to McKinsey to burnish his private sector credentials, but in the process, he has stretched the point. He says on his campaign website that he "joined McKinsey & Company, advising leaders in times of crisis." He was actually a "special adviser" to the firm, on an hourly contract--never an employee.
