Obama named his congressional liaison team Monday.
 
(CNN) — Barack Obama's campaign announced the members of its congressional liaison team Monday, a group that will serve as the primary contact between Democratic members of congress and the campaign.
The four-member team includes Phil Schiliro, Rep. Henry Waxman's long-time chief of staff and the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee's top Democratic staff person who will become a senior adviser to the campaign, and Mike Strautmanis, a political adviser in Obama’s Senate office who will join the team as senior counsel. Karen Richardson, the deputy to the policy director in Obama's Senate office, will serve as the policy director at the Democratic National Committee; and Michael Robertson, deputy to the chief counsel in Obama’s Senate office, will act as director of congressional affairs.
