Bredesen Calls in California Cavalry

It's no secret that Phil Bredesen is the top choice of Democrats across the country to turn the Senate blue.

Senate Democrats' leader Chuck Schumer personally recruited Bredesen to run, and his PAC has spent millions more on Tennessee than any other race. Billionaire Mike Bloomberg, who has pledged tens of millions to Democrats this cycle, hosted a fundraiser for Phil earlier this year.

Now Phil is getting some added help from progressive allies in California, Massachusetts, and other liberal bastions mailing postcards to Tennesseans begging them to vote for Bredesen. You can watch News Channel 9 Chattanooga's reporting on it here.

Bredesen has also relied on phone banks in California to help him reach Tennessee voters. Maybe because his own volunteers have been leaving in droves?

"There's a clear choice in this election: Democrat Phil Bredesen, supported by coastal liberals, and Republican Marsha Blackburn, who stands with Tennesseans on the issues that matter to them." -- Scott Golden, Tennessee Republican Party Chairman
