Bredesen running for US Senate
Former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen reportedly is entering the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate. He began calling major donors on Wednesday to confirm that he is in the race. Bredesen did say he was considering a run after U.S. Sen. Bob Corker announced he would not run for re-election. Bredesen was elected governor in 2002 and served through 2010. His entrance in the Senate race means there will be a contested primary next August, something attorney and political newcomer James Mackler was hoping to avoid. The winner of the Democratic primary is likely to face either U.S Rep. Marsha Blackburn or former U.S. Rep. Stephen Fincher. Bredesen is thought by many to be the Democrat who can best compete financially with Blackburn or Fincher. Mackler's campaign, despite having raised less than $1 million at last filing, says a younger candidate without corporate ties will be more appealing to voters sick of long-term politicians. Mackler is 44; Bredesen is 74.
