Marsha Blackburn: America has heard Tennessee loud and clear

The Tennessee Senate race has just been called for Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn.

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.

Blackburn thanked Trump and Pence in her victory speech and said she will be a leader who will "work with the president and keep this nation on the path to prosperity that we are on today".

Voters like Cody Wheeler in the Nashville suburbs were skeptical about Bredesen's promise to independents and Republicans that he wouldn't toe the party line in Washington.

"I get up every day and I go fight for five things: Faith, family, freedom, hope and opportunity", Blackburn said at a debate with Bredesen.

But Blackburn made her closing argument to voters about Hillary Clinton.

"Marsha Blackburn ran an outstanding campaign from start to finish".
