Former President Bill Clinton will be in Nashville next week hosting a political rally for Tennessee Democratic candidate for governor Mike McWherter.
The free event is scheduled for Sept. 9 at 5 p.m. at the downtown Hilton Hotel.
McWherter is the son of former Tennessee Governor Ned McWhrter, whose friendship with Clinton goes back to the former president’s time as governor of Arkansas from 1983 to 1992.
While in Nashville, Clinton is also hosting a fundraising event for McWherter’s gubernatorial campaign.
McWherter is running against Republican candidate for governor and Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam. Election Day is Nov. 2.
