Despite the heat wave that has made almost any outdoor activity unpleasant, inside the pavilion with the ceiling fans it was not too bad. MC's for the program were radio talk show host Carl Boyd and State Representative Jim Gotto.

Almost all Republican candidates running for office in Nashville were at the event and each were given three minutes to make a speech. In addition to the speeches, candidates mingled among the crowd and spoke one-on-one with people.
|Chatting with Bob Corker|
Senator Bob Corker addressed the crowd saying we must do all we can to elect Mitt Romney. He said he truly believes that Mitt Romney may be a transformational figure like Ronald Reagan who can restore America's greatness.
He said he had been campaigning with Romney and the charge that Romney cannot connect with people is a myth. He said there had been enthusiastic crowds wherever they have campaigned.
