Rep. Marsha Blackburn will win the race to represent Tennessee in the US Senate, CNN can project, outlasting a challenge from former Gov. Phil Bredesen, a Democrat who looked to run against his party to win in a state President Donald Trump won by 26 percentage points in 2016. The Senate Leadership Fund, the super PAC aligned with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, spent over $12 million in the state since Labor Day. 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".

Seems Laura was waiting to ambush Taylor on social media. the FOX News host fired off the snarky Tweet minutes after the network called the election in Blackburn's favor.

But Republicans began to unite behind Blackburn amid the fight over Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court. And he refused to tie himself in Democratic leadership in Washington, claiming that he wouldn't support Senator Chuck Schumer for minority leader. "It also overlaps a little with some Republicans, I guess". Even an endorsement from Taylor Swift couldn't push him over the top.

Polls close in Tennessee at 8 p.m. "Tonight, what you saw was one who's going to be a fighter for those things and individual freedoms, and one that is going to support bigger government and big-government solutions".

'In the past I've been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now, ' she wrote. She's leading now substantially, which is good.

On Tuesday, he got his answer.
