September 25, 2012 – Ascots, politics and networking were the topics of discussion at Roland Martin’s Annual Ascot Affair in Washington, DC on Saturday. The event, held during the Congressional Black Caucus week, welcomed more than 2,000 politicians and socialites for a chance to party with a purpose while discussing everything from the upcoming elections and voter suppression to fashion and entrepreneurship. Celebrity guests in attendance included actress Nia Long, director Robert Townsend, NBA legend Dominique Wilkins, comedians Chris Tucker andGary Owen, actor Quinton Aaron and top power executives Judy Smith and Cheryl Pearson-McNeil.
“I host this party because I like to remind people that politics can be fun,” said Martin, who donned a white dinner jacket with a lavender and green ascot. “We work hard to make sure the political process works for the people, but at the end of the day, we play hard, too!”
WASHINGTON WATCH WITH ROLAND MARTIN airs Sundays at 11AM ET on TV One.
