FRANKLIN, Tenn. (AP) - A potential Republican presidential candidate is headlining Tennessee state Sen. Jack Johnson's annual summer barbeque in Franklin.

U.S. Senator Rand Paul, of Bowling Green, Ky., is scheduled to attend the fundraiser at the Factory in Franklin on July 28. Several hundred people have attended the event in years past. Tickets are $50.

Johnson is the chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee and a prominent fundraiser in the Tennessee General Assembly.

Tennessee Republicans have not voted for the eventual presidential nominee in the primary since giving the nod to President George W. Bush in 2004.

In 2008, the Tennessee GOP primary was won by former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee over U.S. Senator John McCain, and in 2012 Republicans voted for former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum over former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.
