    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...
  • POLL: Marsha Blackburn Leads Bob Corker by More than 2-to-1 Among Tennessee GOP Primary Voters

    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...
  • Sen. Bob Corker Ends Speculation He Created, Says Will Not Seek Re-Election

    Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) ended two weeks of media speculation he created when he floated the idea that he was having “second thoughts” about not running for re-election when his chief of staff told Politico the frequent critic of President Trump has decided he will not seek a third term in the U.S. Senate. Corker’s decision clears the way for Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN-07) to secure the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate seat in Tennessee he currently occupies. It also sets up a general election battle between Blackburn and former Gov. Phil Bredesen, who has no opposition in the...

    There may be rumblings that Sen. Bob Corker may not retire after all, but that doesn’t faze Rep. Marsha Blackburn, who’s staying in the race regardless of what he decides. More than that, however, she’s confident about her prospects of winning. “I am running, and I’m going to win,” the congresswoman told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt on Friday. “I think what Tennesseans want to see, Hugh, is a true conservative in the U.S. Senate. They want to see somebody there that is going to back Donald Trump and his agenda.” Politico recently reported that Corker is “listening” to...

    Believe it or not, the 2018 election is only months away. And while talking heads and media elites focus exclusively on Republican election challenges, the electoral map is chock-full of vulnerable Democratic candidates running in Trump territory. Here are the top Democrats poised for 2018 defeat: 1. Sen. Claire McCaskill (Democrat, Missouri) The definition of a corrupt career politician, Sen. McCaskill is a personification of the Washington swamp and the Democratic Party’s most vulnerable incumbent. Who can forget her failure to pay $287,000 in property taxes on a private plane? Or using $40 million in government subsidies to boost her...

    The time is now to make a change. Regardless of their career, women have had it with being diminished, condescended to, passed over, and belittled. They have had it with inappropriate touching, leering words, innuendos, and emotional or verbal abuse. Regardless if it’s the entertainment world, a school, a doctor’s office, a bank, or Capitol Hill, women have a right to expect behavioral decency in the workplace. Throughout my career, whether in the private or public sector, I have sought to encourage women in the workplace. An acceptance of seediness and vulgarity has seeped into our culture, and now it...

    Americans were rightfully outraged when they learned that members of Congress had used taxpayer dollars to pay settlement claims to alleged victims of sexual harassment.They were even more outraged when they saw the numbers. The secret payouts for harassment claims, of which there have been more than 200, amounted to more than $17 million. There's no telling so far how much of that money went to silence sexual assault accusers.Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) is seeking to release the names of lawmakers who used this "hush fund." She's a co-sponsor of the Congressional Accountability and Hush Fund Elimination Act, which would...
  • Twitter Blocks Marsha Blackburn Campaign Announcement Video for ‘Inflammatory’ Pro-Life Message

    10/10/2017 8:44:11 AM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 23 replies
    Twitter has blocked Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn's (Tenn.) Senate campaign announcement ad, ruling that a pro-life statement was "inflammatory." At one point in the video, Blackburn, who announced last week that she is running for the Senate in Tennessee, heralded how she "stopped the sale of baby body parts," a reference to her investigation into Planned Parenthood's reported practice of "donating" body parts in return for monetary compensation. But a Twitter representative told the Blackburn campaign that Twitter blocked the ad from being promoted, calling it "an inflammatory statement that is likely to evoke a strong negative reaction," the Associated...

Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) Monday over her comment in the ad that she “fought Planned Parenthood and we stopped the sale of unborn baby body parts.”The Associated Press reports that “Twitter found that statement to be inflammatory and ‘likely to evoke a strong negative reaction.’” A Twitter representative reportedly told Blackburn’s vendors that they “would be allowed to run the rest of the video if the flagged statement is omitted.”This means that the Blackburn campaign can’t pay to promote the video on Twitter, but it can still be linked to from YouTube and...

    House Republicans have began to call for another Clinton investigation, this time into possible corruption that the Clinton Foundation may have caused. This is the result of a new letter that has began to circulate among Congressional Republicans. Rep. Marsha Blackburn is the author of the letter, and she feels that "the Foundation's activities cannot be ignored." This letter will be sent to FBI Director James Comey, IRS Director John Koskinen and Federal Trade Commission Chairwoman Edith Ramirez.
