Republican Marsha Blackburn wins US Senate race in TN

Republican Marsha Blackburn Wins Tennessee Senate Seat

And for the U.S. Senate, House member Marsha Blackburn, the Republican, has won her race against former governor and Democrat Phil Bredesen.

The heated race, which some voters described as "vicious", pitted two household names in the state against each other after Republican Sen.

Blackburn is running to replace Republican Senator Bob Corker who decided not to seek re-election.

Bredesen had been viewed as one of the Democrats' best hopes in the party's quest to regain majority control of the Senate.

What pundits are saying: Blackburn was among the earliest midterm candidates who went all in on President Trump's agenda, who returned the favor by visiting Tennessee to campaign on her behalf. "I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent".

Driver was huffing before crash that killed 4
Two girls and a chaperone were killed on the roadside, according to the Lake Hallie Police Department, which is investigating. According to police, the driver was huffing when the crash happened; it's when someone intentionally inhales chemical vapors.

"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". 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.

But those advantages didn't extend to Blackburn, who had a 48 percent approval rating, according to that poll - 5 points lower than Bredesen. Trump visited the state three times.

On Tuesday night, she was happy to claim a piece of Tennessee history for women in the Senate.

Describing herself as "hard core" and "politically incorrect and proud of it", Blackburn embraced her reputation as a conservative firebrand. She's a tremendous woman'.

"Marsha Blackburn ran an outstanding campaign from start to finish". "As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I can not support Marsha Blackburn", Swift wrote in a lengthy Instagram post that delighted many and predictably turned off Fox News personalities, who regularly rail on celebrities for voicing political opinions.
