Race Details

Senator Bob Corker (CFG Lifetime Rating: 80%) is retiring from his Senate seat, leaving an opening for a new TN Senator this upcoming November. While Tennessee is a staunchly conservative, strongly Republican state that gave Donald Trump more than 60% of the vote in the 2016 Presidential election, the Democrats have recruited the richest candidate they could fin in former Gov. Phil Bredesen to make this a tight race. The race is now on, as formidable GOP nominee Marsha Blackburn looks to overtake Bredesen despite his personal wealth and major help from the Democrats.
