Washington (CNN) - Although there are no open press events on President Obama’s schedule today, he will have dinner tonight with a group of Republican senators, CNN’s Jim Acosta confirmed. The president has been reaching out to members of both parties in an effort to reach a deal on deficit reduction and address other items on his agenda, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney has said.
During the day Wednesday the president will receive his daily briefing, have lunch with the vice president and meet with Treasury Secretary Lew. A previously scheduled visit today from the Alabama Crimson Tide has been postponed due to weather, according to the Montgomery Advertiser.
