Florida Gov. Rick Scott and his wife, Ann, will host an inaugural ball to be held in Washington D.C. two days before Donald Trump is sworn in as president.

Save-the-date invitations to the gala went out over the past few days. Though state political parties often organize inaugural balls, this one is being put together by Scott's political committee, Let's Get to Work.

The ball will take place at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 18, at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium. Some Republicans who plan to attend the Friday inauguration have already booked flights for Thursday, which means they might miss the Wednesday night party.
