Paul Calls on Nashville

Posted By on Wed, Sep 26, 2007 at 5:17 AM

Texas Rep. Ron Paul, the Republican presidential contender whose free-trade/hard-money/scrap-the-IRS stances have made him a force to be reckoned with on YouTube and the Web, will appear at a downtown rally 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, at the War Memorial Auditorium. This should be an interesting test of his grass-roots efforts, which resemble some indie rocker's scrappy guerrilla-marketing push (complete with phone-pole flyers, stenciled signs and viral videos) more than presidential politics. Indeed, the initial notice I got about the rally came from the leader of one of Nashville's best punk bands of recent years.

You can also pay upwards of $500 (the campaign suggests $1,000) for an 11 a.m. meet-and-greet the same day at The Pinnacle atop the downtown Sheraton Hotel. Now that's presidential politics.
