Blackburn Wins Tennessee Senate Race Over Bredesen

Blackburn Wins Tennessee Senate Race Over Bredesen”

Republican candidate Marsha Blackburn shook off Taylor Swift's foray into politics to win election Tuesday night, keeping a Senate seat President Donald Trump campaigned for safely in GOP hands.

FiveThirtyEight had given the former governor a 1 in 5 chance of winning, despite overwhelming turnout at the polls. Blackburn will be the first woman to represent the state in the Senate. Tennessee is a deep red state, and while Blackburn seems likely to enjoy a victory that will have her move from the House to the Senate, the fact that it's even so close may give some solace for Democratic political operatives. When Sen. Bob Corker retired, there was plenty of talk that the Dems would claim this seat. Although Bredesen largely kept his distance from other well-known Democrats, Blackburn had no qualms bringing Trump and fellow national Republicans to Tennessee. "We're cancelling a planned six-figure digital video ad expenditure for Phil Bredesen in Tennessee due to his Kavanaugh position". Bredesen, who was Tennessee's governor from 2003 to 2011 and Nashville's mayor before that, vowed to work with Trump when his ideas make sense for Tennessee and oppose the president when they did not. Channel 3 will have a crew there as results come in from across the state. 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. $50 million in outside money.

It did not take long for Trump to respond to Ms Swift's Instagram post last month, saying the pop star "doesn't know anything" about Congresswoman Blackburn. Polls in Tennessee closed at 8 p.m.; within 90 minutes, the race had been projected.
