Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton met with President Barack Obama for an “informal lunch” Monday, the White House confirms.
The White House characterized the meeting as “mostly a social occasion.”
“When their schedules permit, President Obama and Secretary Clinton enjoy the opportunity to catch-up in person,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said in a statement. “This afternoon they met privately for an informal lunch here at the White House for about an hour and a half. They discussed a wide array of topics, but this was mostly a social occasion.”
Obama and the first lady are scheduled to attend an annual Congressional Ball at the White House on Monday night.
