Tom Steyer’s Need to Impeach Campaign Brings National Town Hall Tour to Nashville
Steyer to discuss Donald Trump’s offenses against the nation and demand that local elected officials support Rep. Al Green’s impeachment resolution
(NASHVILLE, August 15, 2018)—Need to Impeach founder Tom Steyer is bringing the case to remove Donald Trump from office to Tennessee, where he will host a town hall—part of his nationwide, 30-stop town hall series—in Nashville, on Tuesday, August 21.
“From California to Florida, Americans across the country are outraged by Donald Trump’s lawlessness and are demanding his removal from power,” said Steyer. “At every single town hall that we have held, we hear directly from American patriots who are frustrated with this administration and the lack of leadership from members of Congress who are overlooking the will of voters who put them in office. There have already been Nixonian-level calls for impeachment last seen at the height of Watergate in 1974. The time for our members of Congress to act is now. American voters demand it.”
Since launching the town hall series earlier this year, Steyer has hosted town halls in New York City; Philadelphia; Columbus, Ohio; Cincinnati; Washington, D.C., Largo, Md.; Arlington, Va; Oakland, Calif.; Sacramento, Calif.; Atlanta; Orlando, Fla.; Des Moines, Iowa; Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Denver, Colo.; Charlotte, N.C.; Columbia, S.C.; Minneapolis; Seattle; Omaha, Neb.; Salt Lake City; Boston; Concord, N.H.; San Antonio; New Orleans; Tulsa; and Detroit.
At the Nashville town hall, Steyer will make the patriotic case to Democrats, Independents, and Republicans about the need to impeach Trump—and question why elected leaders in Tennessee and across the country are ignoring the clear call to action from their constituents.
According to a Quinnipiac poll, 65 percent of Democrats support impeaching Trump, yet Jim Cooper (Nashville)—one of the two Democratic members of Congress representing Tennessee—voted against moving forward with Rep. Al Green’s impeachment resolution earlier this year. The other representative from Tennessee, Steve Cohen (Memphis), independently filed his own articles of impeachment on November 15, 2017.
Steyer launched the Need to Impeach campaign on October 20, 2017, through national television and social media ads. More than 5.6 million people have since signed on to support the campaign, creating a digital army that several political strategists call one of the most powerful political tools in the Democratic Party. So far, 13 national commercials—including two in Spanish—have aired, reaching more than 2 billion television viewers and more than 454 million people through social media.
