TNGOP pitches Nashville as site for 2020 convention with Sun Drop soda, Goo Goo candy

The Republican National Committee meeting, held this week in Nashville, provided Tennessee Republicans with the opportunity to make an early sales pitch on the idea of holding the 2020 Republican National Convention in Nashville, reports The Tennessean.

Among the freebies offered to visiting GOP leaders from other states: Gift bags filled with Sun Drop, Goo Goo Clusters, Moon Pies and Lamar Alexander’s Little Plaid Book. A cruise on the General Jackson on the Cumberland River and a reception at the County Music Hall of Fame.

… “I always promote Nashville to be on the list,” said Beth Campbell, the national committeewoman for Tennessee. “Everyone here this week has thoroughly enjoyed being here. They’re very impressed with Nashville so I think we made a good first impression.”

To welcome attendees of the summer meeting, the state Republican Party prepared the gift bag, which also included a visitors guide and map, a beer koozie from Peg Leg Porker and a custom “Marsha Marsha Marsha” phone wallet.
