It cost $2,700 per person to attend the event and couples had the option of dining with the vice president for $35,000, the AP reported, citing an invitation it obtained.

The vice president joined Walker and several local leaders earlier on Thursday for a talk on tax reform, one day after President Trump and GOP lawmakers unveiled a major tax-reform plan.

Pence met with "local business leaders, community officials, and Wisconsin families to discuss the need for tax reform in the United States," the White House said in a statement.
