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. Before that, she made a name for herself as a state lawmaker who helped lead the revolt against a proposed Tennessee income tax in the early 2000s.
I'm writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I'll be voting in the state of Tennessee. Although Bredesen largely kept his distance from other well-known Democrats, Blackburn had no qualms bringing Trump and fellow national Republicans to Tennessee.
Swift did not respond to Ingraham's shade nor did she comment on the election results Tuesday night.
Blackburn took aim at Bredesen for donating to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and receiving campaign checks from high-profile Democrats. The Republicans were going to nominate Rep. Marsha Blackburn whom the Democrats thought they could paint as an extremist. 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.
Samsung folding smartphone revealed to developers
In teasing the software capabilities, it also revealed that Samsung's foldable phone would be launching next year. Except for a fleeting look at a device he held in a hand, Denison provided scant information about the phone.

A company spokesman, Adam Sedo, reached by phone in Seattle said that Amazon would not comment on "rumors and speculation". The retailer previously announced a planned investment of $5 billion and 50,000 jobs for the second headquarters.
Arsenal v Liverpool, Premier League
Alexandre Lacazette earned Arsenal a point at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, cancelling out James Milner's second-half opener. It would be fair to say, almost three months into his first season at the Emirates, that Emery has met such expectations.
Swift's endorsement caused a significant spike in voter registration and, since then, she repeatedly encouraged fans to vote, shared pics of people doing so on her Instagram Stories and shutdown "fear based extremism".
Before the election, the 28-year-old singer - who had not previously weighed in on politics - said Blackburn had a voting record that "appalls and terrifies" her. She will be the first woman in U.S.to represent her state in the Senate. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG.
"These are not MY Tennessee values", Swift wrote.
"And just imagine this: It is a conservative woman to boot", she said to loud applause.
