President-elect Barack Obama will meet with Republican Senator John McCain on Monday to discuss ways they can work together. The private meeting between the former competitors will take place in Chicago at Obama’s transition headquarters.
It will be the first time the two have spoken since McCain called Obama to concede the election. In McCain’s concession speech on November 4, he promised to help his former rival address the country’s many challenges. The two will be joined by Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, a McCain confidant, and Representative Rahm Emanuel, the Illinois Democrat Obama has chosen as his White House chief of staff.
