WASHINGTON -- In March it was dinner with Senate Republicans. Monday it was golf. Wednesday night, President Obama continued his Capitol Hill outreach, and South Jersey Congressman Rob Andrews had a seat at the dinner table.

Andrews, a close ally of Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Ca.) and the co-chair of the Democratic Steering and Policy Committee, was one of 10 House Democrats having dinner with Obama at the Jefferson Hotel, a few blocks from the White House.

The list also included Pelosi and the number two and three Democrats in the House, Steny Hoyer, of Maryland, and James Clyburn, of South Carolina.

"As part of the president’s continued outreach to congressional leaders, the discussion will address many of our nation’s most pressing issues – such as America’s jobs crisis, looming debt ceiling, immigration reform and gun control – as the President continues to build his second term agenda," said a release from Andrews' office.

Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey was one of 12 Republican senators who dined with Obama at the same hotel in March.
