Republicans don't care if it's close, however, if they simply keep the Senate seat vacated by Republican Trump critic, Bob Corker, who is stepping down. "Few voters associate Bredesen with the national Democratic Party, and he has worked hard to present himself to voters as a competent problem-solver rather than a partisan".
The Tennessee Senate race has just been called for Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn. On the Democratic side, two Super PACs affiliated with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, Senate Majority Pac and Majority Forward, collectively spent a minimum of $15 million.
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.
"Phil Bredesen has said he would have voted against the tax cuts", Blackburn said during one debate. He was the only Democrat running for Senate to announce his support for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his contentious confirmation process.
The Spice Girls reunion tour is finally happening but without Posh
The "Hello" singer has never made a secret of being a Spice Girls superfan, and her epic throwback merely cemented her claims. The reunited Spice Girls have hinted that more dates will be added to the six United Kingdom dates they announced this week.
The race made headlines in the entertainment world last month, when pop singer Taylor Swift endorsed Bredesen, but speculation of a "Taylor Swift" effect that would motivate young voters to tip the race to the Democrat appeared unfounded.
President Trump said Blackburn 'is doing a very good job in Tennessee.
"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". "With Marsha, you knew what you were going to get". Corker briefly heard out pleas from some peers last winter that he reconsider retirement, prompting a Blackburn spokeswoman to say anyone who thinks she can't win the general election is a "plain sexist pig".
On Tuesday night, she was happy to claim a piece of Tennessee history for women in the Senate. She fought for Tennessee values in the legislature and in Congress.
