President Obama will have a private, closed-press luncheon with his former challenger Mitt Romney on Thursday, Press Secretary Jay Carney announced this morning. 

"It will be the first opportunity they have had to visit since the election," Carney said in a statement.  "There will be no press coverage of the meeting."

As he claimed victory on Election Night in Chicago, President Obama said he was hoping to meet with Romney.

"I also look forward to sitting down with Governor Romney to talk about where we can work together to move this country forward," President Obama said.

The luncheon will be in the Oval Office Private Dining Room.
