If you were able to catch a glimpse of Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg in Nashville on Wednesday, you were part of a select few.
The progressive mayor of South Bend, Indiana stumped in Music City Wednesday — but only far-left progressives with cash to spend were there, as the event was pay-to-attend as The Tennessee Star reported in a “softball” preview story Monday that basically provided the candidate’s policy positions.
The far-left Tennessean ran a glowing story Thursday. The story is here, in which the homosexual mayor who has said America was founded on white supremacy cast himself as a moral Christian alternative to President Donald Trump:
“Voters who are guided by religious principles need to know they have a choice,” he said.
People of faith “don’t have to stand with a president whose personal life flies in the face of what faith teaches us about how to conduct ourselves,” Buttigieg said.
The venue also was announced at the last minute, The Star said. The Tennessean revealed that location was the Cannery Ballroom.
Buttigieg did not exactly get grilled by any other media either.
NewsChannel 5 had a six-paragraph story here. The only quote from Buttigieg was:
“It’s important to speak to people in every part of the country, we can’t just write off whole states and say they’re conservative, so they’re going to be Republican forever,” Buttigieg said. “The one way we know we’re going to lose a place is if we don’t even show up.”
WKRN also ran a six-paragraph story.
Billboard reported on country musician Brooke Eden who performed at the rally.
Fox 17 News said in a preview story that the Davidson County Democratic Party hosted a breakfast with Buttigieg and people who paid for admission on Thursday at City Winery.
As The Star reported, Buttigieg is the fourth Democratic presidential candidate to visit Nashville, with him trailing after former Vice President Joe Biden, U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX-16).
