    MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — U.S. Senate candidate Phil Bredesen has taken some soft jabs at Republican opponent Marsha Blackburn for refusing to debate him in Memphis, Tennessee. He also unnerved some supporters when he said he could back policies made by President Donald Trump — as long as they help Tennessee. Bredesen, a Democrat, answered questions at a forum at Rhodes College in Memphis on Thursday. More than 400 people attended the session scheduled on the same day Bredesen wanted to debate Blackburn, who has represented a Middle Tennessee district in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2002....
  • Democrat Spokesman Writes Off Trump Voters – ‘The Idiots Aren’t Listening’

    A likely Democrat nominee for U.S. Senate in Tennessee was facing some unwanted attention this week in response to the harsh and often profane social-media rhetoric of a top party communications aide. Former Gov. Phil Bredesen has advanced a platform during his senatorial bid that includes reaching across party lines to work with Republicans, the Washington Free Beacon reported. But the divisive language used by Tennessee Democratic Party official Mark Brown, who is working with the party to advance Bredesen’s campaign, appears at odds with that spirit of bipartisanship.

    A top Tennessee Democratic Party's communications official made disparaging comments about President Donald Trump and lashed out against a suggestion to reach out to his voters, describing them as "idiots." Mark Brown, a top communications official for the Tennessee Democratic Party currently working as the leading spokesperson to help Democrat Phil Bredesen win the Senate race against Republican Marsha Blackburn, has made a number over-the-top comments on social media, including calling the president "f---stik" and "Putin's b----," the Washington Free Beacon revealed. "Exactly, f--- 'reaching out' to Trump voters. The idiots aren't listening," Brown wrote in one of the tweets...
  • Establishment GOP donors in Tennessee resisting Marsha Blackburn's Senate campaign

    Rep. Marsha Blackburn is meeting resistance from wealthy Republican donors in Tennessee, an establishment-oriented crowd more comfortable with former Gov. Phil Bredesen, the conservative firebrand’s Democratic opponent in the state’s competitive, closely watched Senate race. Republican financiers, titans of industry in Tennessee, are still gloomy about the retirement of Sen. Bob Corker, a conservative pragmatist. Many are sitting on their wallets as the crucial, 100-day mark to the midterm elections approaches. After a lifetime raising millions of dollars for GOP causes and candidates, some are even donating to Bredesen, whom they view as a centrist who will buck Senate Minority...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s Senate campaign announcement ad is being blocked by Twitter over a statement the abortion rights opponent makes about the sale of fetal tissue for medical research. Blackburn in the ad boasts that she “stopped the sale of baby body parts.” Twitter found that statement to be inflammatory and “likely to evoke a strong negative reaction.”

    Former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen, a Democrat, is leading Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn by double digits going into the Senate race to replace retiring Sen. Bob Corker, according to a poll released Thursday. The poll, conducted by Middle Tennessee State University, shows 45% of registered voters favor Bredesen, while just 35% would back Blackburn. In addition, 17% are undecided. For registered independents, preference for Bredesen over Blackburn increases to 12 points. A fifth of Republican respondents would cross the aisle and vote for Bredesen, compared to just five percent of Democrats who would do so for Blackburn. Blackburn's poor performance...

    Several recent polls about the race to succeed U.S. Sen. Bob Corker show one thing: The political battle between former Democratic Gov. Phil Bredesen and Republican U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn is so far a tossup. One recent poll, commissioned by a group linked to Senate Democrats, found Bredesen with a lead within the margin of error. A poll released Tuesday and commissioned by a pro-Trump group found Blackburn with a slim lead, though she received less support (38 percent) than in previous surveys released by the group in February and December, when she enjoyed support among likely voters north of...

    This is good news for those who believe Tennessee's senate seat that Bob Corker is currently defiling. Marsha Blackburn poll numbers from the commissioned by the Committee to Defend the President, which plans to spend heavily in an effort to help Blackburn — found 38 percent of those surveyed supported the Republican congressman while 35 percent favored Bredesen. It continues to narrow from her high lead of 9 In a December poll but given Tennessee's history of narrow elections, this is to be expected. Barring the unforeseen, this is good news for Marasha, President Trump and the Senate increasing it's...

    A poll released by Axios-Survey Monkey on Tuesday shows that Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) leads Democrat Phil Bredesen by 14 points in the U.S. Senate general election, 55 percent to 41 percent among registered voters. Among likely voters, Blackburn’s lead over Bredesen is even greater, 58 percent to 40 percent. Axios-Survey Monkey conducted similar polls in 13 states where contested Senate races are underway. The overall polling reveals that Democrats will have an uphill climb in attempting to capture control of the U.S. Senate in the midterm 2018 election cycle. Democrats are hampered in their Senate races by having to...

    Reverberations continue to sound in Tennessee's U.S. Senate race following President Donald Trump's trip last week to Nashville, where the president first attended a private fundraiser for Republican candidate Marsha Blackburn and then derided Democrat Phil Bredesen at a campaign-style rally downtown. During his speech, the president attacked Bredesen repeatedly, among other things calling the former Tennessee governor a "very liberal Democrat — I've never heard of this guy — who is he?" Trump then called him an "absolute total tool" of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., adding he specifically was recruited by Schumer with the approval of House...

    . President Trump campaigned in Tennessee on Tuesday night for Republican Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn, blasting her Democratic opponent as a “tool” of congressional Democratic leaders and a supporter of Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid. Speaking at a boisterous rally in Nashville, Mr. Trump criticized Democrat Phil Bredesen, a former two-term governor, as “very liberal.” “He’s an absolute, total tool of Chuck Schumer and the MS-13 lover, Nancy Pelosi,” Mr. Trump said, referring to the Democratic leaders of the Senate and House. “They don’t want the wall, they want open borders. They’re more interested in taking care of criminals than taking...

    The first thing I noticed when I walked into the Trump rally in Nashville Tuesday night ... was that Trace Adkins was singing. Not bad! (Hey, it’s Nashville.) The second thing I noticed was that Jim Acosta wasn’t smiling, virtually the only person in the auditorium who wasn’t. If you don’t like Adkins, either you don’t like music or your Trump Derangement Syndrome is so great you couldn’t even groove to Bach or The Beatles in their heydays. Too bad for Jim. ... But enough diversion. Trump’s on. They clearly love him in Nashville, but not Lamar Alexander and, especially,...

    President Trump endorsed Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., in the race for the U.S. Senate and vowed to campaign alongside her. “.@MarshaBlackburn is a wonderful woman who has always been there when we have needed her. Great on the Military, Border Security and Crime. Loves and works hard for the people of Tennessee. She has my full endorsement and I will be there to campaign with her!” Trump tweeted Thursday. Blackburn is running for the seat currently held by Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., a critic of Trump who is retiring at the end of his term, against former Democratic Gov. Phil...

    Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg endured two grueling days of testimony on Capitol Hill this week, during which he was peppered with questions from members of Congress -- some of whom did not evince a strong grasp of how social media works -- in both the House and Senate.  His testimony was deeply apologetic and deferential, and was generally well-received by many observers, as well as the markets (even as fact-checkers picked apart some of his assertions).  The reason he was dragged to DC stemmed from a freakout over news stories about the Trump campaign-linked data firm Cambridge Analytica...

    Former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen (D) now has a 10-point lead over Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R) in their race to replace the retiring Sen. Bob Corker (R), according to a poll released Thursday. The Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) poll found that 45 percent of respondents would vote for Bredesen if the race were held today, compared to 35 percent for Blackburn, as first reported by The Tennessean. Another 17 percent said they remain unsure. The survey indicates Bredesen, a former Nashville mayor, is gathering a wide coalition of support, with a plurality of self-identified independents, 45 percent, saying they...

    The Committee to Defend the President released a poll late Friday that shows Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN-07) trounces Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup in the Tennessee Republican U.S. Senate primary by more than 2-to-1, 55 percent to 26 percent. Corker announced on September 26 that he would not seek a third term in the U.S. Senate, but he has floated several trial balloons over the past several days that he is having second thoughts about that decision. The poll was released at almost the same time that former Rep. Stephen Fincher (R-TN-08) announced that he was...
