The Hillsborough County, FL, Republican Party’s dinner with former Trump political adviser Steve Bannon is now free.

Party vice chairman Jeff Lukens sent an email to members of the local party Monday saying, “The Trump Anniversary Dinner with Steve Bannon this Friday will be COMPLEMENTARY TO ALL. We have a donor who will cover our expenses.”

The party had previously advertised the dinner, to be held Friday night, as a fundraiser with prices up to $20,000 for 10 seats of premier seating at a table with Bannon, VIP tickets at $1,000 each, and general admission at $125.

Last week it cut the prices to $5,000 for the 10 “chairman’s table” seats with Bannon, $300 for VIP seats, and general admission at $50. Announcing the price cuts, the party said in a Facebook posting, “We want to pack the house!!!”

Those prices have now been reduced to zero.
