Obama to meet with GOP senators on Capitol Hill

Posted:

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama will meet with Senate Republicans on Capitol Hill next week.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's office says the president requested the meeting through his chief of staff. The meeting will take place next Thursday.

McConnell says Republicans look forward to having the opportunity to discuss with the president solutions "to shrink Washington spending and grow the economy."

The Republican leaders' office says the president last attended the Senate GOP's policy lunch in May 2010.
