But note Robert Jeffress says the purpose is to lobby evangelicals.
"The primary purpose of the informal meeting with faith leaders Tuesday was for the President to brief faith leaders on the continuing, remarkable accomplishments of this administration" (www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/201…)
Samuel Rodriguez has said in the past that he prizes access to power.
