Obama to Meet Privately with Senate Democrats on Strategy

Thursday, 15 Jan 2015 06:33 AM

President Barack Obama is joining Senate Democrats during a private strategy retreat.

The president's appearance before the senators at a Baltimore hotel Thursday afternoon is closed to reporters.

The meeting comes as the party grapples with its new status in the Senate minority after losing seats in the November elections.

Obama is vowing to work with both parties to try to make progress in his final two years in office. But so far, the Republican-controlled Congress has been taking up legislation he opposes. He's issued five veto threats just a week into the new session.

House and Senate Republicans are holding their own party strategy meetings in Hershey, Pennsylvania, their first joint retreat in 10 years.
