Sens. Graham, Burr will join Obama for dinner tonight

U.S. Sens Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Richard Burr of North Carolina are expected to join a small group of Senate Republicans who will be having dinner with President Barack Obama Wednesday night.

The move appears to be part of Obama’s efforts to reach out more to Republicans.

The Associated Press reports Obama raised the idea of a dinner during a phone call with Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina earlier this week. Obama asked Graham to put together the guest list.

Other attendees include Sens. John McCain, Kelly Ayotte, Pat Toomey, Bob Corker, Ron Johnson, Saxby Chambliss, Tom Coburn, John Hoeven, Dan Coats, and Mike Johanns.
