Republican Marsha Blackburn Wins Tennessee Senate Seat

President Trump arrives for a

ABC News is reporting Marsha Blackburn as the projected victor in the U.S. Senate race in Tennessee, defeating opponent Phil Bredesen. She will be the first woman in U.S.to represent her state in the Senate.

In her victory speech Tuesday night, Blackburn thanked her supporters, saying a lesson from this campaign was that Tennesseans didn't want leaders "who are not going to kick a can down the road on the issues that affect our nation". 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.

Blackburn, an eight-term congresswoman, had allied herself closely with President Trump. The race gained national attention after Bredesen, the state's former governor, received an endorsement from Swift, who was credited by CNN for "turning her Instagram into a get-out-the-vote fan page". I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country.

With 45 percent of precincts reporting, Blackburn had garnered a whopping 62 percent of the vote, compared to just 37 percent for Bredesen. 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". She fought for Tennessee values in the legislature and in Congress. "Having served at the state level as well as the federal level, Marsha will help bring power back to the states and truly make America great again".
