Taylor Swift Loses Tennessee Senate Race

Blackburn won a grueling, expensive contest Tuesday to become the first female USA senator from Tennessee, keeping a key midterm seat under GOP control.

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.

CBS News is reporting that Republican Marsha Blackburn will win the Tennessee Senate race over Democrat Phil Bredesen.

She portrayed herself as a Republican firebrand, saying she carried a gun in her purse and unwaveringly supported Trump's plan to build a wall along the southern border.

Swift, who got her career start in Nashville, broke her political silence by urging her more than 112 million Instagram followers to endorse Bredesen and encourage people to vote.

'In the past I've been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now, ' she wrote.

She welcomed in Pence three times.

"Unfortunately for Phil Bredesen, he's not going to be able to just shake it off. Congratulations, Senator-elect Blackburn!" When Sen. Bob Corker retired, there was plenty of talk that the Dems would claim this seat. The September fight to confirm Kavanaugh significantly boosted Blackburn, who took her first lead in the RealClearPolitics polling average in early October. She's a tremendous woman'. She fought for Tennessee values in the legislature and in Congress. I am grateful she will join a Senate majority in Washington committed to putting America First.
