Republican Marsha Blackburn wins US Senate race in TN

Republican Marsha Blackburn wins US Senate race in TN

Before that, she made a name for herself as a state lawmaker who helped lead the revolt against a proposed Tennessee income tax in the early 2000s.

Blackburn, who will become the first female USA senator in Tennessee history after projections showed she will defeat Democratic former Gov. Phil Bredesen, was scorned by Swift last month when the pop star announced she would be supporting Bredesen.

According to Fox News, GOP candidate Marsha Blackburn successfully defeated her Democratic opponent Phil Bredesen in Tennessee Tuesday night.

Blackburn will be holding her election night event in Franklin.

It's not all bad for the newly political Taylor. she's backing another Dem, Rep. Jim Cooper, who is projected to win re-election.

Bears predictions: Week 9 vs. Bills
The Bills have been outscored 103-20 since, and 157-46 in their past six, during which Buffalo has scored just three touchdowns. McCoy, who declined interview requests this week, was spotted exiting the locker room before reporters were allowed to enter.

Her win represents a rightward shift from the GOP senator she will replace, Bob Corker, who fell in line with Tennessee's historical preference for more-centrist senators and at times was a vocal critic of Trump. Bredesen's moderate stances, he predicted, would give these voters an easy excuse not to vote for her.

"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". She has worked with Ivanka Trump on child care issues. I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. "This is very humbling, and I will not let you down".

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. Trump visited the state three times.

"And just imagine this: It is a conservative woman to boot", she said to loud applause.
