Taylor Swift Loses Tennessee Senate Race

Republican Marsha Blackburn Wins Tennessee Senate Seat BLACKBURN TAKES TENNESSEE: GOP Candidate Defeats Democrat Phil Bredesen
Faye Gross | 08 November, 2018, 02:49

Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn defeated her Democratic opponent Phil Bredesen Tuesday evening in Tennessee's Senate race, virtually ensuring her party will retain their majority in the upper chamber. Bob Corker, a moderate Republican who opted to retire previous year after repeated clashes with President Trump.

Democrats had hoped Bredesen would help the party regain control of the Senate in one of the few GOP-held seats considered competitive enough to flip. Bob Corker, who had frequently clashed with President Donald Trump. Nonpartisan political analysis site Larry Sabato's Crystal Ball had labeled the state as lean Republican and a recent NBC News/Marist poll showed Blackburn with a 4 point lead.

While Republicans in many tight races kept their distance from Trump, Blackburn touted her fierce loyalty to the president and campaigned with him three times, once in Nashville and twice in the eastern part of the state, where she was lesser known and had struggled to turn out the vote.

He likes the company's "honed focus", as Lowe's cuts its losses and doubles down on improving its highest-potential stores. To provide an "an orderly wind-down", Lowe's intends to conduct store closing sales for most of the locations.


"Now, you don't have to worry if you're going to call me congressman, or congresswoman, or congress lady". It's expected to be a close race between Blackburn and Democratic Senate hopeful Phil Bredesen who previously was governor for the state.

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. Bredesen was the last Democrat to win a statewide election in Tennessee, and would have been the first Democrat elected to the Senate since Al Gore in 1990.

Blackburn will be holding her election night event in Franklin. "And you know what?" She will be the first woman in U.S.to represent her state in the Senate. She's a tremendous woman'. Marsha is the conservative champion we need in Washington to fight for the Trump agenda. These are not MY Tennessee values. She will now continue the fight as Senator.
