DraftKings hires lobbyists as sports betting spreads in U.S. and draws lawmakers’ attention

DraftKings Inc., a company that’s seen sizable growth thanks to its daily-fantasy games, is providing more evidence that it’s aiming to become a force in sports betting. A recent filing shows it has hired lobbyists to “educate policymakers on issues related to fantasy sports and sports wagering.” The company has employed Invariant LLC, which was previously known as Heather Podesta + Partners, to lobby on those issues, and a separate filing shows DraftKings also has hired Dunkel Government Relations LLC for lobbying work.
