NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — Tennessee Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn announced she is running for the United States Senate.
In a campaign video, she calls herself a “hardcore, card-carrying Tennessee conservative.” She goes on to say, “I’m politically incorrect and proud of it.”
Recently, Blackburn took on the NFL by filing a resolution about how people should behave during the playing of the national anthem.
Blackburn claims many Senate Republicans “act like democrats or worse.”
She says she is “100-percent” pro-life and is against Planned Parenthood.
“I believe in President Trump’s immigration ban and I will fight with him every step of the way to build that wall,” said Blackburn.
Former State Senator Mark Green announced he plans to run for Blackburn’s seat in Congress.
“Stunningly, Tennesseans have witnessed no results from Congress on the 278th day of 2017 after years of promises to repeal Obamacare, lower taxes, secure our borders and end illegal immigration, and restore our military to confront the challengs of this century like Iran,” said Green. “When Republicans hold the majorities in Congress, it’s time to lead, not have more committee hearings and protect special interests. The time for appeasement is over.”
