Damon Dunn Stanford 1997.JPGFormer GOP down-ticket candidate Damon Dunn has been named visiting fellow at his alma mater Stanford University's Hoover Institution.

Dunn, who played football for Stanford, will serve as a economic and public policy fellow there through the 2012 academic year, according to a release.

"I look forward to working with preeminent leaders in public policy as we help the Golden State regain some of its luster," he said in a statement.

Dunn, who lost a November bid to unseat Democrat Debra Bowen, is a businessman and former professional football player. The first-time candidate was included on Time magazine's "40 under 40" list of political up-and-comers last fall.
