Bipartisanship is tough to come by inside Congress, but two formerly powerful House members are finding it on the outside.
Driving the news: Former congressmen Bill Shuster of Pennsylvania and Joe Crowley of New York, who have known each other for about 20 years, plan to work together in lobbying and government-relations.
- Shuster, 58, who was chairman of the House Transportation Committee, retired.
- Crowley, 56, once seen as a possible successor to Speaker Nancy Pelosi, lost his primary to now-Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The former congressmen are open to joining a firm, or starting their own.
- They're repped by Robert Barnett and Michael O'Connor of Williams & Connolly.
