Republican senators leave White House after meeting with Obama

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican senators met with President Barack Obama for about 90 minutes on Friday about a looming deadline to raise the debt ceiling and the ongoing government shutdown, now in its 11th day.

As they boarded buses to return to Capitol Hill, senators did not respond to shouted questions from journalists standing outside the White House.
