Thank you, this has given me a lot of options to play with. I think I like target the most as a general term because it's used pretty commonly in various political contexts (at least in the US), but the other ones you've suggested will work well other situations.

@ElliottFrisch You might be right. Maybe I'm using the terms incorrectly. There could also be a difference in British English vs. American English. I just finished donating blood, so it's also possible I'm not thinking 100% clearly at the moment :P

@ElliottFrisch Well for example, I think it would be fair to describe one legislator who tries to influence his or her co-legislators as a lobbyist. In this situation, what term would you use to describe the other legislators?
