Laura Ingraham is rubbing it in Taylor Swift's face after the candidate the singer backed for the United States Senate lost his race in Tennessee.

The television networks declared Blackburn the victor at 9:15 p.m. While Blackburn's victory does not represent a flip for the Republicans - she will replace outgoing Senator Bob Corker - keeping a reliably red state in their hands is nevertheless a feather in the GOP's cap, and a crucial step to keeping their majority.

While the race was in a dead heat, Blackburn's poll numbers began to rise not long after President Donald Trump came to the state to promote her among MAGA supporters.

The Democrats won't be picking up a Senate seat in Tennessee.

The race between Blackburn, a longtime conservative firebrand, and Bredesen, the well-liked former governor who had been out of office almost a decade, became one of the most high profile, contentious and expensive races in the country. "Few voters associate Bredesen with the national Democratic Party, and he has worked hard to present himself to voters as a competent problem-solver rather than a partisan".

Bredesen's campaign had spent $15.2 million through mid-October, while outside groups spent about $26.3 million to help him.

"President Trump has made three trips to Tennessee to back the Republican Marsha Blackburn running against a different kind of Democrat here". Bob Corker, a moderate Republican who opted to retire past year after repeated clashes with President Trump.

The race between Blackburn and Bredesen was neck and neck, with Bredesen even leading in multiple polls, up until the battle over the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh took center stage. "I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent".

"I just really want those young people to know how important it is to the future of our country that you not get discouraged, that you stay engaged and you never, ever, ever give up", Bredesen said Tuesday night.
