Cook Political Report shifts Tennessee Senate race to toss-up

Source: The Hill

The Cook Political Report, a top nonpartisan election handicapper, changed its election rating for Tennessee’s Senate race to a toss-up following former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen (D) launching his bid for the seat.

Bredesen, who served as the last Democratic governor of the state, was a top recruit for Democrats in the race to replace Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), a President Trump surrogate-turned-critic who won’t seek reelection in 2018.

Bredesen won his first term as governor in 2002 and handily won reelection in 2006 with 69 percent of the vote, winning every county in Tennessee.


He officially jumped into the Senate race Thursday morning with an online video, arguing that he has the “actual track record that it will take to start working across party lines, to fix the mess in Washington and bring common sense back to our government.”

2. Would be icing on the cake if Corker crossed parties and endorsed Bredesen

3. Lot of people defending his alleged creepiness.

Lot of people defending his alleged creepiness. Wish that sort of political expediency was limited to Moore alone...

4. I hate that "work across party lines" comment --

You can't work across party lines if the other party turns their back to you again and again.

And then hypocritically complains you won't vote for their bills.

8. With all due respect

I didn't post to convey my thoughts about what anyone else might think.

I also happen to think it's incumbent on our "leaders" to tell the truth. YMMV.

5. As soon as they put a face to the thuglican running ...

Tennessee will go from a toss-up to thuglican.

Some say Peyton Manning is being heavily courted to run for the Senate. He could actually win because from all I've heard about HIS allegedly sordid personal life--he'll fit right in as a Sitting US Senator. Roy Mall Rat Moore's going to the Senate next week. He doesn't have to be too intelligent, only popular.

Not sure he'll run because unlike other thuglicans, I feel that he'll want to HIDE as much of his "alleged" dirt under his rock.

10. Strong candidate!

Mayor, 2-term governor.... He's got name recognition, respect, and he's not part of the Grand Old Pedophile party.

I agree, this is a toss-up. We probably need to invest in this race, too.
