Republican Marsha Blackburn wins US Senate race in TN

Howard TerryNov 08, 2018

The race has been declared in favor of Blackburn.

Blackburn worked to undermine Bredesen's popularity and reputation as an independent thinker by tying him to national Democrats at every turn.

Last month, Swift surprised fans by breaking her silence on politics and endorsing Bredesen in a lengthy Instagram post.

The race between Blackburn and Bredesen was neck and neck, with Bredesen even leading in multiple polls, up until the battle over the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh took center stage.

John Geer, Dean of the College of Arts and Science at Vanderbilt University and political science professor, said in the lead-up to election night that moderate Republicans who were drawn to figures like outgoing Gov. Bill Haslam and Sen.

Laura Ingraham is rubbing it in Taylor Swift's face after the candidate the singer backed for the United States Senate lost his race in Tennessee.

"Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me". She rarely diverged from Trump, and touted his proposed U.S. -Mexico border wall and tax cuts while blasting Bredesen's opposition to both.

Blackburn was elected to Tennessee's 7th Congressional District in 2002.

"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".

While the race was in a dead heat, Blackburn's poll numbers began to rise not long after President Donald Trump came to the state to promote her among MAGA supporters. She will be the first woman in U.S.to represent her state in the Senate.

"And just imagine this: It is a conservative woman to boot", she said to loud applause. "As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I can not support Marsha Blackburn", Swift wrote in a lengthy Instagram post that delighted many and predictably turned off Fox News personalities, who regularly rail on celebrities for voicing political opinions. I am grateful she will join a Senate majority in Washington committed to putting America First.
