 On Wednesday, April 10, Georgia Republican Senator Johnny Isakson will host a dinner for President Obama and 12 Republican Senators.  

It's the second time that the President has broken bread with a group of GOP Senators; he had dinner with a different group a month ago.  

The dinner will take place as Congress tries to reach agreement on a number of difficult issues:  debt reduction, gun control, and immigration (to name just a few)--all the while keeping an eye on new and aggressive moves by North Korea.  

WABE's Denis O'Hayer got a quick preview of the upcoming debates, and the dinner, in a talk with Sen. Isakson.
