— The White House says President Barack Obama’s lunch with Republican Mitt Romney focused on America’s leadership and the two presidential rivals pledged to stay in touch, particularly if opportunities to work together come up in the future.

In their first meeting since the election, Obama and the GOP nominee met for lunch in the White House’s private dining room, fulfilling a promise Obama made in his victory speech the night of Nov. 6.

The White House says Romney congratulated the president for his successful campaign and wished him well in the coming four years. The conversation during the hourlong meeting focused on America’s leadership in the world and the importance of maintaining that leadership position.

The lunch menu included white turkey chili and Southwestern grilled chicken salad.
