Freshman Dems to meet with Obama next week

The Hill

Freshman Democrats in the lower chamber are expected to meet with former President Obama next week at a reception organized by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), a Democratic aide confirmed Thursday.

The event — which is slated to take place at former UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador Esther Coopersmith’s home in Kalorama — is limited to just members, several of whom served in the 44th president’s administration, according to an invitation seen by The Hill.

The invitation states that the reception is being held to “celebrate the freshman class of the 116th Congress.”

Politico first reported the news.

Obama played a visible role in helping Democrats take back control of the lower chamber, having provided key endorsements, hit the campaign trail and raised funds in the party’s efforts to flip seats.

The 116th Congress currently has 59 Democratic freshman members.
