SHOCKER: Even Taylor Swift Can’t Elect A Democrat In Tennessee

Share

I'm writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I'll be voting in the state of Tennessee. On the Democratic side, two Super PACs affiliated with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, Senate Majority Pac and Majority Forward, collectively spent a minimum of $15 million. Blackburn defeated former Democratic Gov. Phil Bredesen in a hotly contested race that was viewed by many analysts to be a toss-up heading into election day.

One of the most popular public figures in state history and the last Democrat to be elected statewide, Bredesen led much of the early polling and kept the race deadlocked nearly until the very end, thanks to support from GOP moderates and independents.

On Tuesday night, she was happy to claim a piece of Tennessee history for women in the Senate.

"These are not MY Tennessee values", Swift wrote. They held a rally for her on Sunday in Chattanooga at McKenzie Arena. She rarely diverged from Trump, and touted his proposed U.S. -Mexico border wall and tax cuts while blasting Bredesen's opposition to both.

'I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. Taylor Swift, a pop star known for staying out of politics, eagerly got behind his campaign, too.

While Republicans in many tight races kept their distance from Trump, Blackburn touted her fierce loyalty to the president and campaigned with him three times, once in Nashville and twice in the eastern part of the state, where she was lesser known and had struggled to turn out the vote. She's leading now substantially, which is good. And let's say that I like Taylor's music about 25 per cent less now, okay?' the president grinned.
