NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg was the latest of several Democratic candidates who came to Music City hoping to sway Nashville voters.

Supporters packed Public Square Park on Saturday afternoon as Buttigieg took the stage. He gave a speech touching on many of his policy proposals, but also took questions that were submitted by people at the event.

He spoke on everything from details on how he will bridge divides between Republicans and Democrats to what his favorite Beatles song is. Buttigieg also touched on the importance of campaigning states like Tennessee.

It's something that voters who were at the event said they agreed was critical.

"I think its really awesome because I feel like in a way Tennessee is such a red state that if you even lean toward moderate Republican, we just don't get the time of day from people, so it means a whole lot that those candidates were coming," a woman at the event said.

Buttigieg is among several candidates making a push in the Mid-State before Super Tuesday.

Tennessee voters will head to the primary polls on March 3.
