Ahead of Trump Tennessee visit, Blackburn, Bredesen trade ad barbs

NASHVILLE All eyes will be on Tennessee Monday as President Donald Trump makes his second trip to the state to boost Republican Marsha Blackburn in the increasingly raucous U.S. Senate battle between the GOP congress member and Democratic former governor Phil Bredesen.

His visit comes following Blackburn and Bredesen's first, attack-laced debate last week in their race to replace retiring Republican Sen. Bob Corker of Chattanooga.

Tennessee has drawn national attention with the contest in a statistical dead heat, according to a Real Clear Politics summary of four polls. The two most recent surveys showed Bredesen with a two- to three-point lead but falling within the margins of error.

"President Trump so appreciates the people of Tennessee, and we look forward to welcoming him back to our state and having him on the campaign trail with us," Blackburn said of his planned trip to Johnson City.

1. Id just like to say thank you!

And others for posting these things about Tennessee. I seem to always be on the "ass end" of things because I never know about them beforehand. Thank you for the info!

2. You're welcome.

I know that I don't get all of the news occurring in Tennessee since I'm posting threads in all of the state groups, but I try to use various sources for the threads. Four of the largest markets in Tennessee are covered by USA Today publications so the articles found in the alternative media help to balance out the corporate slant.

Thanks for the comment and may I suggest subscribing to the Tennessee Group to keep up with the news.
