McConnell, Boehner, Pelosi and Reid Invited to White House
The big four congressional leaders have been invited to the White House on Friday afternoon for a post-election meeting, which could set the tone for how President Barack Obama can work with Congress — or not — in his last two years in office.
He’s expected to see a newly ascendant Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who won re-election and is vowing to hold the president accountable.
“It’s time to turn this country around … and I will not let you down!” McConnell told cheering supporters Tuesday night.
It’s not yet clear whether McConnell will be able to lay claim to the majority by then . (Stay tuned.)
Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio; Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.; and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., are also expected to attend.
