Comcast's lobbyists get new D.C. digs

Comcast has inked the deal on a long-term lease for 20,000 square feet of office space at 300 New Jersey Ave. NW in Washington, D.C.

The new 10-story building is much closer to Capitol Hill--a better point from which to continue convincing federal regulators to approve that little NBCU merger.
