President Donald Trump stormed into Tennessee on Tuesday night to campaign for Rep. Marsha Blackburn in her bid for the Senate, with Republicans facing headwinds in the midterm elections this fall.
Trump invited Blackburn onstage in Nashville and pilloried her Democratic opponent, former Gov. Phil Bredesen — or, as Trump referred to him, “Phil whatever the hell his name is.”
“We need Republicans and we need to get out and vote for Marsha,” Trump told the crowd. “If you want your communities to be safe, if you want your schools to be safe, if you want your country to be safe, then you have to go out and get the Democrats the hell out of office.”
