WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Representative Cedric Richmond of Louisiana brings a decade of experience in the House of Representatives, including some outreach to Republicans, to President-elect Joe Biden’s administration at a time Democrats will need that skill set.

Richmond has ties to House Republicans and especially to fellow Louisianan, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, who he served with in the state legislature before coming to Washington.
Despite his bipartisan streak, Richmond warned that he would play hardball to advance Biden’s “aggressive” agenda.
While Biden was victorious in the Nov. 3 presidential election, House Democrats suffered some defeats, leaving them with a much narrower majority.
