  Original Published: 4/18/2013  President Barack Obama continued his Congressional outreach Wednesday, meeting with Democratic Senators.    The dinner at the Jefferson Hotel in Washington, D.C., came during the middle of a week in which the issues of gun control and immigration reached crucial points on the legislative agenda.   A White House official says they discussed gun violence, immigration reform, the economy and the Boston Marathon explosions.   The two-hour meeting followed two high-profile dinners between Obama and Senate Republicans in recent weeks.    He also met with both caucuses in both chambers last month in multiple trips to Congress.    The President's new outreach follows criticism that he was not socializing enough with lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
