Mayor Steve Benjamin of Columbia, SC, will kick off the grand opening of the Mike Bloomberg 2020 Democratic presidential campaign office in Chattanooga on Monday. The opening will be at 724 Cherry Street at 5 p.m.
Mr. Benjamin serves as national co-chair of the Bloomberg campaign and is the first black mayor of Columbia.
He will meet with voters and local officials, share Mr. Bloomberg’s vision for the country, and discuss his support of Mr. Bloomberg.
Mr. Blomberg's campaign said, "Mike is focused on bringing opportunity to all Americans. He recently announced his plans for the “All-In Economy” that will bring jobs and income growth to people and communities that have been short-changed by President Trump. Last week, he rolled out the Greenwood Initiative, his plan to address the systemic and unacceptable wealth gap faced by Black Americans.
"The Chattanooga campaign headquarters joins offices in Nashville and Knoxville as part of our campaign to defeat Donald Trump and elect Mike president of the United States."
Tennesseans head to the polls on Super Tuesday, March 3.
