    Tennessee has a real chance to elect a Democrat to replace Corker

    Dems Land Top Recruit: Former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen Will Run For Senate ? Talking Points Memo


    Popular former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen (D) will run for Senate, according to two local newspapers, giving Democrats a heavy-hitting candidate for long-shot seat.
    Bredesen, who served two terms and left office with strong approval ratings in 2010, gives Democrats a well-connected and well-liked candidate who likely has a singular ability to win in the Republican-heavy state.
    Bredesen served as Mayor of Nashville and Governor and did a great job...

    Sen. Bob Corker’s (R-TN) decision to retire has created a slim opening for Democrats in the state. Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) is facing off against former Rep. Steven Fincher (R-TN) in the GOP primary.

    Bredesen would have been better than Corker, but my money will be on Blackburn.

    Bredesen served as Mayor of Nashville and Governor and did a great job...
    Bredesen was very opposed to Obamacare, so there are some points for him.
