Republican Marsha Blackburn Wins Tennessee Senate Seat

Republican Marsha Blackburn Wins Tennessee Senate Seat

Rep. Marsha Blackburn, a conservative Republican, was elected to the U.S. Senate on Tuesday night, beating former Democratic Gov. Phil Bredesen in a race that had been rated a toss-up by election analysts. She will become Tennessee's first female USA senator, replacing the retiring Bob Corker.

Bredesen had been viewed as one of the Democrats' best hopes in the party's quest to regain majority control of the Senate. Indeed, Blackburn hitched herself to the President, who visited the state to campaign on her behalf three times since May, including Chattanooga in his final swing on Sunday night. 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.

Blackburn took aim at Bredesen for donating to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and receiving campaign checks from high-profile Democrats. This has been the most expensive Senate race in Tennessee history.

First two Muslim women elected to US Congress
Like Omar, she blazed a trail through MI politics, becoming the first Muslim woman to serve in the MI state legislature in 2008. Like Omar , Tlaib championed progressive policies, including a Medicare for All, a $15 minimum wage and immigration reform.


One of the most popular public figures in state history and the last Democrat to be elected statewide, Bredesen led much of the early polling and kept the race deadlocked nearly until the very end, thanks to support from GOP moderates and independents.

"Phil Bredesen has said he would have voted against the tax cuts", Blackburn said during one debate. The president's son Eric Trump, and U.S. Sens.

Voters like Cody Wheeler in the Nashville suburbs were skeptical about Bredesen's promise to independents and Republicans that he wouldn't toe the party line in Washington.

Salvador Perez and Alex Gordon win Gold Glove awards
He is the first AL pitcher to win four Gold Gloves in a five-year span since Kenny Rogers won four of five from 2002-06. The winners are determined by combining votes from Major League managers and coaches with a sabermetric component.


Last month, Taylor Swift dipped her toe in politics when she took to Instagram to endorse Bredesen. "With Marsha, you knew what you were going to get".

With 45 percent of precincts reporting, Blackburn had garnered a whopping 62 percent of the vote, compared to just 37 percent for Bredesen.

'She voted against equal pay for women. She will now continue the fight as Senator. "Having served at the state level as well as the federal level, Marsha will help bring power back to the states and truly make America great again".
