Nikki Haley is scheduled to come to Nashville on Feburary 18 to campaign for U.S. Senate Republican candidate Bill Hagerty.
This, according to The Tennessean, which did not disclose the location of the event for the former South Carolina Republican governor.
“Attendees are asked to pay $2,800 per couple or individual for a luncheon and photo reception that starts at 11:30 a.m. For $500 a person, attendees can attend the main event at noon,” according to The Tennessean.
“Hagerty, who was endorsed by President Donald Trump before he entered the race, is expected to continue to bring high-profile supporters to Tennessee throughout the campaign.”
As The Tennessee Star reported last month, Hagerty hosted Donald Trump Jr. and his girlfriend, former FOX News personality Kimberly Guilfoyle, at a similar event in Hagerty’s hometown of Gallatin. Hagerty held the event at Gallatin’s EPIC Event Centre
The president’s son told an audience then that Hagerty “was on the Trump train before it was politically expedient.”
And that, Trump went on to say, is why his dad, U.S. Republican President Donald Trump, endorsed Hagerty so early in the campaign.
At that event, Hagerty described himself as a fourth-generation Tennessean who grew up raising cattle and pigs. Hagerty said he’s running to replace the retiring U.S. Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander because he wants future generations to have the same opportunities Hagerty had.
“When President Trump gave me his complete and total endorsement, he did so because he wants an ally, a Christian conservative who will stand with him and against the Democrats and their calls for radical socialism and against those Republicans who at times are weak and want to side with the Democrats and impeach our president,” Hagerty said at the time.
As The Tennessee Star reported in September, Hagerty said he decided to run after he “saw the threat to Tennessee and our country from the Democrats’ socialist agenda.”
