Obama Dines with Top Democrats
On Wednesday, President Barack Obama will dine with top Democrats like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD).
According to the Hill, other attendees will include:
Reps. James Clyburn (SC), the assistant Democratic leader; Xavier Becerra (CA), chairman of the House Democratic Caucus; Joseph Crowley (NY); vice chairman of the Caucus; Chris Van Hollen (MD), senior Democrat on the Budget Committee; Rosa DeLauro (CT) and Rob Andrews (NJ), the co-chairmen of the Democrat's Steering and Policy Committee; Steve Israel (NY), head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee; and Mike Thompson (CA), who chairs the Democrats' task force to prevent gun violence.
The White House said the dinner will be held at the Jefferson Hotel in Washington.
Obama will have dinner with these top Democrats the night after Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch lost a special election in South Carolina's first Congressional district to Republican Mark Sanford.
