    The 1946 Battle of Athens, Tennessee Investigations into Cantrell and Mansfield elections began when citizens noticed that many of the votes tallied included felons and deceased members of the county. As well as the returning veterans were routinely targeted by the Sheriff’s men as they made up roughly 10 percent of the county’s voting populous. An opposing non-partisan party to Cantrell and Mansfield was formed by the returning G.I.’s and thus the 1946 battle of Athens, Tennessee began.

    FULL TITLE: Planned Parenthood Arch-Enemy Marsha Blackburn Wins Tennessee Senate Race Over Pro-Abortion Candidate Some of the abortion industry’s worst enemies are the women leaders who fight so strongly for the rights of unborn babies. U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn from Tennessee is one of them. And the pro-life Republican leader won her Senate race against pro-abortion Phil Bredesen. U.S. Sen. Bob Corker, who currently holds the seat, is retiring. “I know the left calls me a wing-nut or a knuckle-dragging conservative,” Blackburn said in her announcement video, CNN reports. “And you know what? I say, that’s all right, bring it...

    Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker (R) declined to tell a reporter Thursday whether he had voted for Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R) or her opponent, Phil Bredesen (D) in the race to replace him in the Senate when asked about his vote. Corker has endorsed Blackburn, but his support for the Trump-aligned congresswoman is seen as reluctant amid his own criticism of the Trump administration. "I think you know, so, I’ll leave it at that," he told the Nashville Tennessean on Thursday. Though adding of Blackburn, he reportedly said: "Yeah, I endorsed her early on."

    Is blocking truth censorship? Google Ads blocked Tennessee GOP candidate Marsha Blackburn from releasing a campaign ad for Google search users because the “content didn’t meet Google standards.” The 30 second ad titled “Stop the Mob” showed protesters screaming during a moment of silence for the victims of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, and a protester kicking a cameraman. She also had a 15 second ad. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-AR6PIUKJo According to the Daily Caller, Google Ads, an online advertising platform, would not allow the Tennessee Republican’s campaign for Senate promote two campaign videos as search ads because the content doesn’t meet Google’s standards,...

    On Sunday, Marsha Blackburn, who is running for the Senate seat vacated by empty suit Bob Corker against Democrat former governor Phil Bredesen, held a rally with recently discovered conservative rock star Lindsey Graham. This was the day after the massacre of eleven worshipers at a Pittsburgh synagogue and Blackburn asked for a moment of silence. That isn’t what she got. Naturally, as Republicans have been pushing the “Democrats stand for mobs not jobs” theme (FACT CHECK: True since at least 1968), Blackburn cranked out ads showing the flower of the Democrat party in full bloom All was well until...

    The Democrats typically lead Republicans in early voting during midterm and presidential election cycles. In 2016 the Democratic lead in early voting was such that it inspired major news outlets, AP for example, to run articles with titles like “Early voting: More good signs for Clinton in key states.” Among the states in which early voting portended a victory for Hillary, according to AP, were Florida and North Carolina. The story went on to quote her spokesperson as follows: “The Clinton campaign describes both North Carolina and Florida as ‘checkmate’ states.” Trump won both of course.Oddly, most of the major...

    Knox County voters came out strong and, in some places, waited in long lines Wednesday that reminded Elections Administrator Cliff Rodgers of a presidential election. (My emphasis.) It was the highest voting on the first day day [sic] of early voting in at least 10 years, which includes three presidential election cycles, and Knox County election officials believe it is a record first-day turnout.

    Nearly 10,000 people showed up to the polls each day on the first and second days of early voting. The first day alone was one of the best in at least 10 years according to the election commission. Even though it's not a presidential election year, Knox County voters are swarming to the polls early -- possibly breaking a county record in the process. Generally, midterm elections see a lower-than-average voter turnout compared to presidential election years -- but this does not appear to be the case for the 2018 midterms.
