Lawmaker who wants paid fast lanes on Internet wins US Senate seat

Lawmaker who wants paid fast lanes on Internet wins US Senate seat

Laura shaded Taylor on Twitter, telling her to #shakeitoff after Rep. Marsha Blackburn beat out former Gov. Phil Bredesen to win an important Senate seat for the GOP.

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. Nonpartisan political analysis site Larry Sabato's Crystal Ball had labeled the state as lean Republican and a recent NBC News/Marist poll showed Blackburn with a 4 point lead.

President Trump said Blackburn 'is doing a very good job in Tennessee. Bredesen's moderate stances, he predicted, would give these voters an easy excuse not to vote for her.

The race between Blackburn and Bredesen was neck and neck, with Bredesen even leading in multiple polls, up until the battle over the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh took center stage. "Marsha Blackburn wants it to be a national referendum on Trump and Bredesen wants to deal with local Tennessee issues and solving problems". I am going to work as hard for you as you have worked for me. Trump visited the state three times. 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. 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". "And you know what?" "As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I can not support Marsha Blackburn", Swift wrote in a lengthy Instagram post that delighted many and predictably turned off Fox News personalities, who regularly rail on celebrities for voicing political opinions. She voted against equal pay for women. "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".
