Some members of Congress and their families, most of whom have a particular allegiance to their home state’s team, were also invited.

Those members of Congress who have so far RSVP-ed are the senators from Pennsylvania -- Republican Sen. Pat Toomey and Democrat Sen. Bob Casey. Rep. Reid Ribble, R-Wisc., and State Rep. Rafael Anchia, D-Texas, from Dallas will also attend.

Members of the president’s cabinet, including Attorney General Eric Holder, U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, and Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood will also watch the game at the White House.

White House staff will also attend the party that will be in the state floor of the White House.

The president, a Chicago Bears fan, has said that he remains neutral on who to root for during Sunday’s game.

“Now that the Bears have lost, I've got to stay neutral,” Obama told YouTube’s head of news and politics, Steve Grove, last week. Obama added, “And may the best team win.”
