Carr expects this year’s event to draw more than 600 at $50 per ticket. Organizers will be setting up tents to handle any crowds that can’t fit into the main equipment shed.
“I am thrilled to have a brilliant political mind in Dick Morris headline this year’s T-Bones Politics,” said Carr, who is paying Morris a speaker’s fee. “Dick has a unique perspective on what we’re seeing happening in Washington right now, and I’m eager to hear his insight.”
