Will Speaker Boehner be a “no show” in Stamford tomorrow?

With the budget crisis looming, those who paid a high price for tomorrow night’s Republican State Central dinner in Stamford are wondering if the guest of honor, House Speaker John Boehner will be a no-show.

According to one member of the State Central, the Speaker is still planning to come and this “will be the first event with the Speaker since the budget battle was heightened today.” Apparently, the organizers just completed a “run-through” with Speaker Boehner’s staff and security detail. (The Speaker is next in line to be President after the Vice President, so security is tight.) Speaker Boehner has requested that the dinner be off the record.

A few tickets are still available through State Central.
