Bill Clinton Rallies For McWherter

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Democrats are gearing up for a visit from former President Bill Clinton to campaign for gubernatorial candidate Mike McWherter in Nashville.

The Thursday evening rally had to be moved outdoors from a hotel ballroom because of the level of interest in the event headlined by the former president.

McWherter is the son of former Gov. Ned McWherter, who has been close friends with Clinton ever since he was the governor of neighboring Arkansas.

Meanwhile, Republican candidate Bill Haslam this week announced a series of fundraisers around the state. Hosts include U.S. Sen. Bob Corker, former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist and state Senate Speaker Ron Ramsey, a former rival for the gubernatorial nomination.

Democratic Gov. Phil Bredesen can't run again because of term limits.
