U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday warned his supporters against being "complacent" this fall, asking voters to send more Republicans to Congress while crediting Democrats with "sticking together" to oppose his agenda.
"When the president of the United States says about undocumented immigrants, "These aren't people, these are animals, ' you have to wonder, does he not believe in the spark of divinity, the dignity and worth of every person?"
Trump is using the campaign appearances to mobilize his core backers by highlighting his accomplishments in office, like improving economic indicators and moving the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and resurrecting some of his go-to lines from the 2016 campaign. She has dubbed herself a "hardcore, card-carrying Tennessee conservative".
Blackburn, a Republican congresswoman, is vying for her party's nomination to replace retiring Corker, a Republican. Bredesen has a small lead in some polls, but the race appears to be a toss-up. From spearheading the attack on net neutrality and broadband privacy protections to her support of ISP-written protectionist state laws banning towns and cities from trying to build their own broadband networks, you'd be hard pressed to find a single instance where Blackburn sided with consumers over entrenched, unpopular broadband monopolies.
On "America's Newsroom", Rep. David Schweikert (R-Ariz.) said border security is a critical issue that Republicans should run on heading into November's midterm elections. You see what's happening with the Democrats?
"I've never heard of this guy - who is he?" Who is he? Who is he? "He's an absolute, total tool of Chuck - of Chuck Schumer".
Bredesen was governor of Tennessee from 2003 to 2011 and was previously the mayor of Nashville.
Interested in Donald Trump? Corker once said Trump had turned the White House into an "adult day care center" and the president tweeted that Corker "couldn't get elected dog catcher in Tennessee".
Blackburn thanked Trump for his endorsement and said that "he's had an awesome 18 months" in part because he has "repeal [ed] a record number of regulations".
Hoping to shore up Blackburn's chances, President Trump this week made a quick visit to Tennessee to heap praise upon the unpopular lawmaker.
