Bredesen, Freeman co-host fundraiser for Va. senator

Former Gov. Phil Bredesen and Nashville businessman Bill Freeman, who have been at odds over political matters in the past, are co-hosting a fundraiser for Virginia Democratic U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine’s 2018 reelection campaign on April 28, reports The Tennessean.

The event will be held at Valentino’s Ristorante, which is co-owned by Freeman.

To be a host for the lunch reception fundraiser at the West End Avenue restaurant, donors are to contribute $5,400, according to an invitation obtained by The Tennessean, while others are asked to donate $2,700 a person.

Ahead of the presidential election, Freeman and other Nashville Democrats welcomed Kaine at Valentino’s for an Aug. 23 fundraiser for the then-vice presidential candidate and his running partner Hillary Clinton.

Kaine’s Senate seat figures to be a top target of Republicans during the 2018 midterm elections, although at this point there are no declared GOP candidates seeking the seat.
