With the flames of the presidential race sweeping the nation, presidential candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney will turn down the heat for a cool evening fundraiser in New York just two days after duking it out in their no-holds-barred debate. The night is expected to be a calm, humorous event, starkly contrasted to their fiery debate.
Two days after their contentious second debate, U.S. President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney will meet again in a far more congenial setting Thursday night in New York City.
The two candidates will speak at an annual fundraising dinner hosted by the city's Catholic Archdiocese at the luxury Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. Unlike their heated exchanges in Tuesday's debate, Mr. Obama and Mr. Romney are expected to deliver humorous speeches in keeping with the spirit and tradition of the event.
