This morning, Politico Playbook reported:
Tennessee Democratic Senate candidate PHIL BREDESEN reported giving his own campaign $2 MILLION yesterday.
This of course is Bredesen yet again going back on his previous commitment to not self-fund. As The Tennessean reported last December when Bredesen announced (emphasis added):
Bredesen, a former Nashville mayor who has earned millions privately in the health care industry and helped bankroll some of his past campaigns, said he would not be contributing any personal money into his race.
“I think at this point, I’ve earned the right to go out and raise money,” he said.
“Phil Bredesen will stop at nothing to hand Tennessee’s Senate seat over to Chuck Schumer and national Democrats,” said Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Scott Golden. “No amount of money can change the fact that Phil Bredesen is a Democrat and he will vote with national Democrats every single time. He had no trouble lying to voters about self-funding -- Tennesseans can't trust him to represent their values in Washington.”
