Marsha Blackburn Wins Tennessee Senate Race

Republican Marsha Blackburn Wins Tennessee Senate Seat

Republican Marsha Blackburn Wins Tennessee Senate Seat

"The Fox News Decision Desk can now project that Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn will defeat former Democratic Governor Phil Bredesen to replace retiring GOP Senator Bob Corker".

Blackburn took aim at Bredesen for donating to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and receiving campaign checks from high-profile Democrats.

The race between Blackburn, a longtime conservative firebrand, and Bredesen, the well-liked former governor who had been out of office almost a decade, became one of the most high profile, contentious and expensive races in the country.

Bredesen looked to blunt the attack by telling voters he would not back Schumer for Majority Leader if he were elected. She backed Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court the same day Trump nominated him, and criticized Bredesen for taking so long to say he would have supported Kavanaugh's confirmation as well.

"I think any other Democrat would be behind by 15 to 20 points", said Anthony Nownes, a professor at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville.

In a lengthy post on Instagram about a month before the election, Swift said she could not support Blackburn because of her record of voting against women and the LGBT community.

"My world view comes from me, not from the canons of the Democratic party", he told reporters Sunday after addressing an interfaith luncheon in Chattanooga.

The reasons the contest was so close was due to Bredesen's popularity in the state.

"Now, you don't have to worry if you're going to call me congressman, or congresswoman, or congress lady". She rarely diverged from Trump, and touted his proposed U.S. -Mexico border wall and tax cuts while blasting Bredesen's opposition to both.

"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".

On Tuesday, he got his answer.
