  • Republican Marsha Blackburn Wins Tennessee Senate Seat

Rep. Marsha Blackburn will win her U.S. Senate race against Democratic former Gov. Phil Bredesen, keeping the Tennessee seat in Republican hands, NBC News projects.

And Swift took to Instagram on Election Day, posing for a photo with a Bredesen campaign sign as she encouraged her followers to vote.

Before the election, the 28-year-old singer - who had not previously weighed in on politics - said Blackburn had a voting record that "appalls and terrifies" her.

"You have sent a message that it is time to take Tennessee conservative values to Washington and keep our state and our country moving forward".

However, Kane's scuffed left-foot shot found the bottom corner before his late header took two deflections on its way in. Both sides now sit on one point in the group while Barcelona sit top with nine and Inter in second with six.

Trump, who carried the state by 26 percentage points in his 2016 election, ventured to Tennessee last month to campaign for Blackburn, telling supporters that "a vote for Marsha is really a vote for me and everything that we stand for".

'She voted against equal pay for women. She rarely diverged from Trump, and touted his proposed U.S. -Mexico border wall and tax cuts while blasting Bredesen's opposition to both. Blackburn's campaign, meanwhile, shelled out about $12 million through mid-October, and outside groups some $31.6 million for her bid. "This is very humbling, and I will not let you down".

'I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. "Marsha Blackburn wants it to be a national referendum on Trump and Bredesen wants to deal with local Tennessee issues and solving problems".

While his ability to legislate across - not only with Republicans in the Senate, but with President Trump, who remains popular in the state - was the crux of his pitch to voters, it wasn't enough. "I know the left calls me a wingnut, or a knuckle-dragging conservative", she told voters.
