Obama to dine with women of the Senate

President Obama is dining with all of the female members of the Senate Tuesday night, the White House announced.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) thanked Obama for the invitation over Twitter.

The dinner is a continuation of a number of meetings the president has held with senators in recent weeks. He's hosted closed-door dinners with a dozen Democratic senators and two sets of 12 Republican senators. 

Sixteen of the 20 women serving in the upper chamber are Democrats.
