According to Fox News, GOP candidate Marsha Blackburn successfully defeated her Democratic opponent Phil Bredesen in Tennessee Tuesday night.

FiveThirtyEight had given the former governor a 1 in 5 chance of winning, despite overwhelming turnout at the polls.

Republican Marsha Blackburn, a member of Congress since 2003, was declared the victor shortly after 9:00 on Tuesday night. She will become Tennessee's first female US senator, replacing the retiring Bob Corker.

It's believed that the team and Floyd have engaged in settlement talks on the grievance. "I'm going to get justice for Sharrif". Floyd expected the operation to be a routine arthroscopic procedure that would require three to four weeks of recovery.

President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have made a strong push for Blackburn in the midterm elections. Bredesen, who was Tennessee's governor from 2003 to 2011 and Nashville's mayor before that, vowed to work with Trump when his ideas make sense for Tennessee and oppose the president when they did not.
