Cheney, Ben Romney top bill of pre-Veep debate party

The event, sponsored by the Young Professionals for Romney, will join conservatives before Paul Ryan and Joe Biden square off in their first — and only — debate.

Retired Vice President Richard B. Cheney and Dr. Ben Romney, a Boston internalist and son of Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee for president, will join young Washington conservatives Oct. 11 in Arlington, Va. for a pre-debate party before Rep. Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) faces off against his Democratic opponent Vice President Joseph R Biden Jr.

The party will be held at Arlington‚??s Clarendon Ballroom. The ballroom is housed on the site of an old Woolworth‚??s department store and still has the original maple floors and pressed tin ceilings and moldings.

For $5,000, guests can participate in the roundtable discussion with Cheney and Romney and attend the VIP reception with photos taken with the two men. Not in the roundtable mood? Just a photo is $2,500.

General admission for the party is $100.

The event is sponsored by the Young Professionals for Romney and you can RSVP here.
