McDonnell, Kaine to 'roast' Warner at health care benefit

By Anita Kumar

Sen. Mark Warner's successors in the Virginia governor's mansion plan to have a laugh -- or two -- at his expense later this month.

There will be some bipartisan ribbing when Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) and former Gov. Tim Kaine (D) roast Warner (D) at a benefit for the Virginia Health Care Foundation Nov. 22.

Warner helped create the foundation, which provides grants to free clinics and community health centers and assists the uninsured with medical, dental and mental health care.

Tickets for the event, to be held at the swanky Jefferson Hotel in downtown Richmond, are $250.

Hosts include a who's who of the Virginia business and political world, including former Lt. Gov. John Hager; Dominion Resources CEO Tom Farrell; best-selling author John Grisham; John Wynne, rector of the University of Virginia; actors Tim and Daphne Reid; and former legislators Alan Diamonstein and Jean Cunningham. Check out the full list on the invite.
