What happens when a staunch conservative Republican meets up with a liberal, wise-cracking Democrat? Well, in this case, they fall in love and get married. And stay married. Join us on Wednesday, September 25 at Benton Convention Center to learn how constructive engagement can lead to living your best life by listening to nationally known political icons and strategists Ann Compton, Mary Matalin and James Carville.
