Trump to hold Nashville rally amid efforts to boost GOP Senate hopeful
President Trump is set to rally voters in Nashville later this month, his campaign announced Saturday.
The May 29 “Make America Great Again rally” will seek to deliver a boost to GOP Senate hopeful, Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), who is running to replace Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) when he retires next year.
“The President looks forward to being with patriotic Tennesseans once again as he celebrates this booming economy that’s helping families throughout the state thanks to his historic tax cuts and job-creating policies,” Trump campaign CEO Michael Glassner said in a statement announcing the rally.
The Tennesseean newspaper previously reported that Trump will headline a pricey fundraiser for Blackburn.
Tickets for a private roundtable with the president are going for $44,300 per couple, a private photo reception will cost $10,800 per couple and a general reception is going for $2,700 per couple.
Trump has made several stops to campaign for Republican congressional candidates in recent months, including Pennsylvania and Indiana.
Blackburn is running a tight race against Tennessee’s former Democratic Gov. Phil Bredesen.
Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., will also travel to Charleston, W.Va., on June 5 to campaign on behalf of Patrick Morrisey, who is challenging Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) for his seat in the November elections.
