The Tennessee Republican Party has released a new ad, highlighting Phil Bredesen’s support for the most ardent Democratic obstructionists in the Senate.
The ad will run on digital platforms statewide and is available here.
“While Phil Bredesen claims he wants to end ‘partisan squabbling’ in Washington, the fact is that the worst offenders are in his own party,” said Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Scott Golden. “President Trump is fulfilling his promise to the American people to nominate constitutionalist judges and justices, but Senate Democrats are throwing up partisan roadblocks at every turn. A vote for Phil Bredesen is a direct vote for these obstructionists.”
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) is leading the charge, telling CBS This Morning he’d oppose the President with “everything I’ve got.” His interview is available to watch here.
In an off-the-cuff moment caught on video during a Labor Day parade in Brooklyn, Senate Minority Leader Schumer told a bystander who asked when President Trump would be impeached, “The sooner the better,” The Tennessee Star reported, citing Fox News.
In an exclusive interview with Tennessee Star Political Editor Steve Gill, U.S. Senate hopeful Representative Marsha Blackburn (R-TN-07) called Bredesen out over one of his greatest vulnerabilities.
“Chuck Schumer has bought and paid for Phil Bredesen’s vote,” Blackburn told Gill.
Senator Schumer (D-NY) – who is the Senate Minority Leader and is poised to become Senate Majority Leader should the Democrats’ “blue wave” happen – is said to have personally recruited Bredesen out of retirement to run when Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) opted not to run for a third term
Senator Cory Booker (D-N.J.) claimed that to support a constitutionalist judge like Brett Kavanaugh was to be “complicit in the evil.” Booker this week also falsely claimed to break Senate rules by releasing documents about Kavanaugh that were already released.
