Gore In Talks To Host Big Fundraiser For Obama In Tennessee

Those Obama supporters out there feeling left behind by Barack Obama's lack attention to Tennessee may be in for some excitement relatively soon. Post Politics has learned that a conference call took place this morning to make arrangements to bring the Democratic Presidential nominee to Nashville.

On the call were operatives in the Chicago campaign office of Barack Obama, Obama supporters here in Tennessee as well as a representative of former Vice President Al Gore, Beth Alpert.

The purpose of the call was to discuss the possibility for a Gore-hosted Obama fundraiser right here in Nashville, Tennessee before the Democratic National Convention in late August.

Preliminary plans call for two events. One would be a private high dollar affair possibly at the home of Al & Tipper Gore, the other a more public event at bigger location such as the Ryman Auditorium.
