A trio of White House officials slipped into Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s office Monday afternoon for a meeting on health care reform that included Reid (D-Nev.) and Democratic Sens. Max Baucus (Mont.) and Chris Dodd (Conn.).

Joining the Senators were White House Deputy Chief of Staff Jim Messina; Nancy-Ann DeParle, President Barack Obama’s chief health care adviser; and White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett.

Senate sources said the meeting was aimed generally at finding a way to get 60 votes for health care reform legislation.
