Republican Marsha Blackburn Wins Tennessee Senate Seat

Republican Marsha Blackburn Wins Tennessee Senate Seat

The television networks declared Blackburn the victor at 9:15 p.m.

Blackburn, a six-term congressman (her preferred term) from the Nashville suburbs, becomes the first woman elected to represent Tennessee in the U.S. Senate, filling the seat of Sen. The race has been declared in favor of Blackburn. "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".

Democrats had hoped to pick up Tennessee as part of a narrow path to retaking the Senate. Outside groups on both sides of the aisle spent millions boosting their respective candidates.

Bredesen looked to blunt the attack by telling voters he would not back Schumer for Majority Leader if he were elected. Tennessee voted for Trump by 26 points in 2016, and he remains popular there; a CNN poll released November 1 found his approval rating at 53 percent there, nearly 15 points

"Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me".

Americans cast votes on Tuesday to decide whether Donald Trump's Republicans maintain their grip on the US Congress, or if. However, the US has granted eight temporary waivers to countries that will let them wind down their imports over time.

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

She made a final plea to her fans a week before the election in another Instagram post, which has garnered 759,401 "likes", so far. He provoked ire from the party after announcing his support for Trump Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh, saying allegations of sexual misconduct "didn't rise to the level" that would exclude him from the bench.

Blackburn took aim at Bredesen for donating to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and receiving campaign checks from high-profile Democrats. Polls in Tennessee closed at 8 p.m.; within 90 minutes, the race had been projected.

"I just really want those young people to know how important it is to the future of our country that you not get discouraged, that you stay engaged and you never, ever, ever give up", Bredesen said Tuesday night.
