President Barack Obama will take questions from Senate Democrats on television this week at their retreat, Majority Leader Harry Reid's (D-Nev.) office announced Tuesday.

Obama will speak to the 60-member Senate Democratic Caucus on Wednesday morning during their retreat at the Newseum here in D.C. 

The speech will be followed by a question-and-answer period, which will be televised, as was Obama's Q&A with House Republicans at their retreat last Friday. The nonpartisan political network C-SPAN announced the session would be televised in a tweet on Tuesday afternoon:

Watch C-SPAN 2 LIVE at 10am Weds as President Obama addresses and takes questions from Senate Democrats at their retreat in DC.

Pundits on both sides of the aisle had welcomed the televised exchange with Republicans, and the White House said it hoped for a similar, televised session with Senate Republicans. The session with Democrats will be the second such session in less than a week.

Obama took questions from members of the House Democratic Caucus during their speech, though that session was behind closed doors.
