Bredesen is wrong for TN

Obama-loving liberal Phil Bredesen ended weeks of speculation today, and signaled his intent to run for U.S. Senate.

In a state where voters elected Donald Trump by a 26-point margin, the former Governor is going to have an impossible time defending his radical policies and major financial support for national Democrats. Bredesen’s candidacy highlights the reality that Tennesseans haven’t elected a Democratic Senator in nearly three decades, and that won’t be changing any time soon.

“After escaping the burden of Barack Obama’s disastrous presidency, the last thing Tennesseans want is one of Obama’s biggest supporters, Phil Bredesen, representing them in Washington,” said NRSC Spokesman Michael McAdams. “Bredesen’s opposition to the 2nd Amendment, weak stance on illegal immigration, and embrace of Barack Obama’s out-of-touch policies puts him at odds with Tennessee values, and will doom his longshot Senate campaign.”
