Obama Pledges To Work Better With America’s Governors

WASHINGTON (AP) — The nation’s governors are going to the White House on Monday to discuss ways to bolster job growth and improve their partnerships with the federal government.

The gathering is scheduled for the final day of the National Governors Association winter meeting. Governors dined with President Barack Obama at a black tie dinner Sunday, where he pledged to work more closely with them in the coming months.

Democratic governors met with the president on Friday to discuss improving the manufacturing sector in their states. They told reporters after the meeting they were enthusiastic about their conversation.

Republican governors will have a news conference to offer their assessment of the White House discussion.
