(Reuters)—President Barack Obama appointed a Capitol Hill veteran as his new White House liaison to the U.S. Congress on Friday in an effort to advance his legislative priorities in an election year.

Obama named Katie Beirne Fallon, a deputy White House communications director and former aide to Democratic Senator Charles Schumer, to replace Miguel Rodriguez, who had been director of legislative affairs for the past two years.
