BREAKING: Tennessee race called between Marsha Blackburn and Phil Bredesen
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
Conservative Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R) has defeated former Gov. Phil Bredesen in Tennessee, likely quashing Democrats’ chances of taking control of the Senate.
She will fill the seat vacated by Sen. Bob Corker’s (R-Tenn.) retirement.
The article goes on to state the following:
Blackburn pulled ahead of Bredesen after the Senate’s divisive debate over Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, which polarized the electorate in Tennessee and other battleground states that voted for President Trump.
Bredesen in an interview with NBC’s Kasie Hunt over the weekend criticized Senate Democrats’ handling of the Supreme Court fight and argued that “coming out immediately against anyone who Trump put up was a mistake.”
Tennessee has moved toward Republicans in the 12 years since Democrat Phil Bredesen last won a statewide race. Here’s how he’s doing against Republican Marsha Blackburn at 12% reporting.
