Senators invited to dine, again

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama is taking Senate Republicans on another date night.

In the wake of his successful dinner earlier this month with a dozen GOP senators, during which they discussed budgets, the president has dialed up his ideological adversaries to request more of the same.

Obama phoned Republican Sen. Johnny Isakson of Georgia to arrange for a second dinner, and senator is putting together a guest list of another dozen GOP senators, none of whom attended the first one.

The save-the-date is set for April 10, with a location to be determined, an aide to the senator confirmed.
