Marsha Blackburn Prevails in Tennessee Senate Race

Republican Marsha Blackburn Wins Tennessee Senate Seat BLACKBURN TAKES TENNESSEE: GOP Candidate Defeats Democrat Phil Bredesen
Ellis Copeland | 07 November, 2018, 19:10

Bob Corker, whose decision to retire opened the seat and gave way to the Democratic campaign, declined to help bury the popular Democrat, a clear sign that not all Republicans have been wooed by the Trump wing of the party.

Early polls had Bredesen in the lead. Marsha Blackburn calls herself a hardcore conservative proud to be politically incorrect and both candidates are trying to shape the race according to their own issues. The Senate Leadership Fund, the super PAC aligned with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, spent over $12 million in the state since Labor Day.

Trump, who carried the state by 26 percentage points in his 2016 election, ventured to Tennessee last month to campaign for Blackburn, telling supporters that "a vote for Marsha is really a vote for me and everything that we stand for".

He provoked ire from the party after announcing his support for Trump Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh, saying allegations of sexual misconduct "didn't rise to the level" that would exclude him from the bench. And he refused to tie himself in Democratic leadership in Washington, claiming that he wouldn't support Senator Chuck Schumer for minority leader. "It also overlaps a little with some Republicans, I guess". "We're cancelling a planned six-figure digital video ad expenditure for Phil Bredesen in Tennessee due to his Kavanaugh position. This is very humbling, and I will not let you down".

"If you like whats going in Washington, and you like this sort of lines in the sand, take no prisoners, I'm not the guy".

"Phil Bredesen has said he would have voted against the tax cuts", Blackburn said during one debate.
