Race for Corker's seat is heating up
The US Senate race in Tennessee is heating up. During the state GOP's annual Statesmen's Dinner, Former Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen, a Democrat, came under fire from Republican candidate US House member Marsha Blackburn. Referring to Bredesen's image as a moderate, Blackburn pledged to "take our Tennessee values to Washington to help President Donald Trump” . She argued that Bredesen is "running to bring back the values of Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer. And I think Tennesseans have about enough of that." In response, Bredesen's campaign issued a statement saying, "Governor Bredesen's message of working together to get things done is resonating with voters throughout the state who are tired of the hyper-partisan yelling and finger- pointing.” Spokesperson Alyssa Hansen called the "contrast between the Senate candidates increasingly clear — Tennessee voters can pick an eight-term Congresswoman who's been causing gridlock in Washington for the past decade and a half, or they can hire someone who is an independent thinker and has a proven track record of working across the aisle to get things done for Tennessee."
