Many voters were surprised when Clinton made an unexpected stop at Fido to order a quick coffee before her event. She could be found taking selfies with supporters at the coffee shop.

One customer at Fido had no idea Clinton would be making a stop there, but when Anna Bass saw her role model, she only had one thing on her mind.

"I need to get a picture with the next President of the United States of America," Bass said, and luckily, she was able to do just that. "My roommates back in Atlanta are going to be so jealous. We all phone bank for her, and we absolutely love Hillary Clinton." 

Clinton was joined throughout the day by Mayor Megan Barry and actor Tony Goldwyn, who plays the President of the United States on the TV show Scandal. Both spoke at Meharry Medical College before Clinton took the stage.



Mayor Barry recently released her endorsement of Clinton, and Goldwyn spoke about how he believes Clinton represents what he believes is right for America.



During her speech, Clinton said her campaign was “about breaking down barriers.” She also stated she wants Americans to be able to fulfill their potential and later mentioned all children, regardless of their zip code, deserve quality education.

Clinton also said she looks forward to debating the Republican nominee if she gets the nomination.

The former first lady spoke of Nashville often and thanked many in the area for their support, including Mayor Barry.

When it comes to job creation, Clinton said she hopes it will get back to where it was in the late 90's "when my husband was President."

Clinton also spoke about President Barack Obama saying he hasn’t gotten the credit he deserves. She added he was put in a bad situation and has done a great job to turn America around.

Clinton ended her speech by asking for the vote of Nashvillians and added Tennessee is an important state.

She made the stop in Nashville just two days before voters head to the polls for Super Tuesday.
