In a blow to Democrats' hopes of regaining a political foothold in the South - and to their dream of claiming majority control of the U.S. Senate - Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn defeated former Democratic Gov. Phil Bredesen in Tennessee's closely watched Senate race.
But Swift doesn't have that much to shake off, as Democrat Jim Cooper - the candidate she endorsed for the U.S. House of Representatives - did win.
Ingraham wasn't the only one to mention 28-year-old Swift's failed endorsements on Tuesday night.
The tweet was met with an immediate response as advertisers pulled out of her show, something Hogg encouraged the companies to do. Dial it down. You can't open your mouth.
"You have sent a message that it is time to take Tennessee conservative values to Washington and keep our state and our country moving forward".
Blackburn has been an outspoken supporter of President Trump and his policies, campaigning on issues such as a securing the border, safeguarding the Second Amendment, ensuring constitutionalist judges get put on the bench, cutting taxes and regulation, defending the right to life, and more. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me. "She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape", Swift wrote in her length list of grievances.
'She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples.
I'm writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I'll be voting in the state of Tennessee.
The reasons the contest was so close was due to Bredesen's popularity in the state. 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".
"These two Tennessee women voted for the candidate who has proven himself to be reasonable and trustworthy", Swift captioned an Instagram photo posing with her mother. "Please don't sit this one out". "We want leadership, not fear-based extremism".
