In case you can't afford a ticket or being in a roomful of Republicans is not your idea of fun, you'll still have a chance Wednesday to listen in when Karl Rove speaks at the Sarasota County Republican party's Lincoln Day Dinner.
Rove, the reputed "mastermind" behind George W. Bush's political career, will address GOP faithful gathered at the Hyatt Sarasota, 1000 Boulevard of the Arts. (Tickets start at $150 each; you can register here.)
A private reception will run from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., a cocktail reception from 6 to 7 p.m. and dinner starts at 7 p.m.
But you'll also be able to listen to Rove talk about health care reform and other topics via your computer. Get details of the Webcast here.
