NASHVILLE – On the evening of September 9th, Former U.S. President Bill Clinton will headline a rally hosted by Jackson businessman and Democratic Gubernatorial nominee Mike McWherter. The move comes as campaigns across the country ramp up their efforts after Labor Day Weekend in their attempts to win general elections in November.
“I’m honored to have Bill’s support and look forward to welcoming him to the Volunteer State,” said Mike McWherter. “President Clinton has always focused on the needs of small businesses and working families, which are the top priorities of my campaign. Everyday Tennesseans need a governor who will stand up for them and not cower to the pressure of special interest groups. I will be that governor.”
