Blackburn wins Tennessee Senate race over Bredesen

Republican Marsha Blackburn Wins Tennessee Senate Seat

Blackburn, who will become the first female US senator in Tennessee history after projections showed she will defeat Democratic former Gov. Phil Bredesen, was scorned by Swift last month when the pop star announced she would be supporting Bredesen.

Trump, who carried the state by 26 percentage points in his 2016 election, ventured to Tennessee last month to campaign for Blackburn, telling supporters that "a vote for Marsha is really a vote for me and everything that we stand for".

Blackburn, a Trump loyalist and eight-term congresswoman who espoused deeply conservative values, beat former Gov. Phil Bredesen (D), who campaigned as a moderate who would work with Trump on some issues.

First elected to the House in 2002, Blackburn aligned with the tea party movement and regularly appeared on Fox News.

Bredesen had been viewed as one of the Democrats' best hopes in the party's quest to regain majority control of the Senate. 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".

Der Spiegel calls the settlements "weak" and claims Uefa "wasn't even entirely aware of the degree to which it had been deceived". When UEFA were investigating City over FFP, Fordham apparently never came up.

President Trump said Blackburn 'is doing a very good job in Tennessee.

"Unfortunately for Phil Bredesen, he's not going to be able to just shake it off. Congratulations, Senator-elect Blackburn!"

On Tuesday night, she was happy to claim a piece of Tennessee history for women in the Senate. Bob Corker went as many pollsters predicted in recent weeks.

"Marsha Blackburn ran an outstanding campaign from start to finish. 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".
