Obama, governors-elect meet

President Obama met Friday with a handful of newly elected governors, including Greg Abbott, the Texas Republican who has led efforts to sue the president over his immigration executive orders.

Abbott said the lawsuit did not come up in his talks with the president. "Today was not the setting or the time," Abbott said, adding that he did raise his state's concerns in his conversations with other administration officials.

Obama said much of the agenda focused on the economy and ways states and the federal government can work together to promote growth. Also at the meeting were Pennsylvania's Tom Wolf and the governors-elect of Alaska, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. - AP
