Blackburn's Best Opposition Ad Yet
Phil Bredesen will represent national Democrats, not his fellow Tennesseans.
One U.S. Senate race receiving a lot of national attention is that of Rep. Marsha Blackburn, who is seeking the seat being vacated by Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN). That is because, according to the Leftmedia pollaganda machine, she has been trailing her opponent, the aging and infirm former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen, in a state Donald Trump carried by 25 points.
Though Bredesen was originally considered a sacrificial lamb, a placeholder but not competitive, that shifted earlier this year for several reasons.
First would be that the Democrats’ national strategy is “HATE TRUMP,” and Bredesen has received enormous support from out-of-state leftists, including $3.5 million in ad support from Demo Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and big-dollar support from New York leftist Michael Bloomberg. Second, opposition from some wealthy establishment Republican elitists who don’t like Blackburn’s alignment with Trump (or more likely have problems with strong women) has helped turn Bredesen into a viable competitor. Last, even retiring Sen. Corker, who last year got into a distasteful spat with Trump, has offered tepid support for Blackburn, saying only that he will vote for her and has maxed out his donations to her campaign.
To drive home that point, Marsha’s team developed what should serve as a model opposition ad for every Republican facing a “moderate” Democrat — pulling clips from Bredesen’s phony claims of bipartisanship and comparing those with identical fake claims by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
