(CNN) - President-elect Barack Obama went to Capitol Hill on Tuesday to meet with Senate Democrats and make his case for how he wants to spend the second half of the $700 billion bailout.
Obama attended the weekly lunch of Democratic senators in what was his final visit to the Senate before his inauguration next week, according to the transition team. He also had been expected to push for his economic stimulus plan.
Obama has been making phone calls to senators asking for their support.
Some Republicans and Democrats said they were upset by how the Treasury Department spent the first allotment of $350 billion.
