Blackburn wins Tennessee Senate race over Bredesen

The Tennessee Senate race has just been called for Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn.

FiveThirtyEight had given the former governor a 1 in 5 chance of winning, despite overwhelming turnout at the polls.

Blackburn was elected to Tennessee's 7th Congressional District in 2002.

Blackburn is running to replace Republican Senator Bob Corker who decided not to seek re-election.

President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have made a strong push for Blackburn in the midterm elections. She will become Tennessee's first female USA senator, replacing the retiring Bob Corker.

The reasons the contest was so close was due to Bredesen's popularity in the state. A low-key guy who has taken odds with the Democratic leadership calling them elite, and saying some of their ideas stupid, also saying he is willing to work with President Trump. This may be why Trump has come down here so often despite the fact he carried the state by 26 points in 2016 and it's been 28 years since Tennessee has sent a Democrat to the Senate, bill.

The Democrats won't be picking up a Senate seat in Tennessee. $50 million in outside money.

Bredesen, a Democrat who served as the governor of Tennessee from 2003 through 2011, was pilloried by ads tying him to unpopular Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, the House and Senate Democratic leaders, respectively. Several networks called that race nearly immediately after polls closed in Tennessee.
