Joe Scarborough, "Political Outlook"

Saturday, March 10, 2018 • 8:00 pm
Emilie K. Asplundh Concert Hall, Philips Memorial Building
Orchestra $27 | Balcony $22

As the face of MSNBC's Morning Joe, former Florida Congressman Joe Scarborough pulls from his experience as an influential player in Republican politics. Through candid discussions about important issues that America faces each day, Scarborough and his Democratic co-host, Mika Brzezinski, have been praised by such publications as Newsweek, TIME, The New Yorker, and the New York Times for their "substantive, informative, and entertaining" show format.

A two-time New York Times best-selling author, columnist for The Washington Post, and founder of the Florida Sun, Scarborough's "Political Outlook" is a presentation of his analysis of the biggest current news stories, as well as a breakdown of the news you need to know about politics, elections, the economy, and what's next for America.
