Former President Barack Obama will meet with new House Democrats at a reception in their honor.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) is hosting the event to celebrate the fresh faces of the 116th Congress. The reception takes place following the conclusion of House votes on Monday. POLITICO says they obtained the invitation to Obama, and clarify the event is reserved for members and "limited" to the 60-plus freshman class.

Underwood received his endorsement in Hawaii — Obama's home state — and became the youngest black woman elected to Congress.

Pelosi's reception will be held at the house of Esther Coopersmith; a well-known Washington hostess who served as a representative to the United Nations during Jimmy Carter’s administration.
