WASHINGTON, May 12 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama huddled with Senate Democrats on Tuesday to talk about how to move forward after Democrats blocked debate on granting him trade promotion authority (TPA), an administration official said.

"The president convened a meeting today with Senate Democrats, including members who have publicly indicated their support for advancing a TPA bill, to discuss a path forward for this legislation," the official said, speaking on background.
