    Reverberations continue to sound in Tennessee's U.S. Senate race following President Donald Trump's trip last week to Nashville, where the president first attended a private fundraiser for Republican candidate Marsha Blackburn and then derided Democrat Phil Bredesen at a campaign-style rally downtown. During his speech, the president attacked Bredesen repeatedly, among other things calling the former Tennessee governor a "very liberal Democrat — I've never heard of this guy — who is he?" Trump then called him an "absolute total tool" of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., adding he specifically was recruited by Schumer with the approval of House...

    President Trump endorsed Rep.

    Former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen, a Democrat, is leading Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn by double digits going into the Senate race to replace retiring Sen. Bob Corker, according to a poll released Thursday. The poll, conducted by Middle Tennessee State University, shows 45% of registered voters favor Bredesen, while just 35% would back Blackburn. In addition, 17% are undecided. For registered independents, preference for Bredesen over Blackburn increases to 12 points. A fifth of Republican respondents would cross the aisle and vote for Bredesen, compared to just five percent of Democrats who would do so for Blackburn. Blackburn's poor performance...

    The Committee to Defend the President released a poll late Friday that shows Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN-07) trounces Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup in the Tennessee Republican U.S. Senate primary by more than 2-to-1, 55 percent to 26 percent. Corker announced on September 26 that he would not seek a third term in the U.S. Senate, but he has floated several trial balloons over the past several days that he is having second thoughts about that decision. The poll was released at almost the same time that former Rep. Stephen Fincher (R-TN-08) announced that he was...

    There may be rumblings that Sen. Bob Corker may not retire after all, but that doesn’t faze Rep. Marsha Blackburn, who’s staying in the race regardless of what he decides. More than that, however, she’s confident about her prospects of winning. “I am running, and I’m going to win,” the congresswoman told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt on Friday. “I think what Tennesseans want to see, Hugh, is a true conservative in the U.S. Senate. They want to see somebody there that is going to back Donald Trump and his agenda.” Politico recently reported that Corker is “listening” to...
  • Twitter Blocks Marsha Blackburn Campaign Announcement Video for ‘Inflammatory’ Pro-Life Message

    Twitter has blocked Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn's (Tenn.) Senate campaign announcement ad, ruling that a pro-life statement was "inflammatory." At one point in the video, Blackburn, who announced last week that she is running for the Senate in Tennessee, heralded how she "stopped the sale of baby body parts," a reference to her investigation into Planned Parenthood's reported practice of "donating" body parts in return for monetary compensation. But a Twitter representative told the Blackburn campaign that Twitter blocked the ad from being promoted, calling it "an inflammatory statement that is likely to evoke a strong negative reaction," the Associated...

    Rep. Marsha Blackburn said Monday that the Senate needs to “show some spine” and help fix the heath insurance problem. “President Trump, I believe, is looking to solve the problem. The problem is we’ve got the Senate who cannot seem to — you know they like to work in gangs. We’ve had the gang of seven or eight. I want the gang of 51. I want the Senate to show spine and fix this problem,” Ms. Blackburn, Tennessee Republican, said on CNN. Mr. Trumptweeted over the weekend to slam the “bailouts” for members of Congress buying insurance on the Obamacare...

    A new congressional letter circulating among lawmakers charges the William, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation is a “lawless, ‘Pay-to-Play’ enterprise that has been operating under a cloak of philanthropy for years.” The letter, obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation, is authored by Tennessee Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn who plans to send it to FBI Director James Comey, Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen and Federal Trade Commission chairwoman Edith Ramirez. The letter calls upon the three agencies to launch a “public corruption” investigation into the ties between Clinton Foundation donors and Hillary Clinton’s policies as secretary of state. The...

    Constituents in my congressional district routinely ask me about the chances of Hillary Clinton being elected President. Hard-working Tennesseans are gravely concerned about what another four years of Obama-like policies will do to our country. They know America is headed in the wrong direction. However, I am convinced that Hillary Clinton will not be elected because she is untrustworthy and ineffective.

    Ex-mayor and Labour councillor calls to deport Israelis to US, claims Israel behind US school shooting and ISIS terror attacks. Yet another member of the UK Labour Party has stirred up controversy with a series of virulently anti-Israel comments accusing the Jewish state of a litany of atrocities and calling for the ethnic cleansing of Jews from Israel. After a week in which both former London mayor and Labour activist Ken Livingstone and Labour MP Naz Shah were suspended for anti-Semitic comments, the former mayor of Blackburn has come under fire for social media comments posted less than a year...

    INDIANAPOLIS - Prosecutors say a third suspect should be charged with killing a pastor's pregnant wife even if he didn't pull the trigger. Diano Gordon appeared in court Friday morning, one day after prosecutors filed murder charges against him. Police believe Gordon was a lookout while two others went inside to rob the home of Davey and Amanda Blackburn. Larry Taylor Jr. and Jalen Watson already face charges of murder and robbery in the Blackburn case. Gordon faces two counts of murder, along with burglary, robbery and theft. The three men are accused of breaking into the Blackburn home on...
