Romney Meets With Obama At White House Lunch
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney met for lunch at the White House on Thursday hoping to discuss their overlapping interests instead of the sharp differences that defined their presidential contest.
Obama and the Republican nominee met for the first time since the election, gathering in the White House's private dining room. The two men met alone with no press in sight.
Romney arrived at the White House early Thursday afternoon in a black SUV. He stepped out of the passenger side and walked into the West Wing alone.
Romney met earlier in the day with his former running mate, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan.
