New Ad: Phil Bredesen's "Leaked" Texts

"Hey Chuck, Tennessee voters are asking about Kavanaugh...what should I say?"

Oct. 3, 2018 -- The Tennessee Republican Party is launching a new five-figure digital ad buy across all major platforms statewide.


Phil Bredesen has so far refused to take a position on how he would vote on Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court. This is directly in-line with Senate Democrats' leader Chuck Schumer's instructions to red-state Democrats to "stay as neutral as you can, as long as you can.”

Never one to let an opportunity to inject herself into the national conversation go to waste, Hillary Clinton has been outspoken on her opposition to Kavanaugh's nomination, even repeating debunked claims about the judge. Since Phil was a major donor for Hillary's run in 2016, it's not far-fetched to think he's still taking advice from his long-time friend.

Phil's hemming and hawing has frustrated Tennesseans, who booed him at his own event when he gave yet another non-answer.

"It's been 86 days since Brett Kavanaugh was nominated to the Supreme Court, but Phil Bredesen still refuses to tell Tennessee voters how he would vote on the nomination," said Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Scott Golden. "Marsha Blackburn has been clear that she will vote to put Constitutionalist judges and justices on the Supreme Court every time. Phil Bredesen has given nothing but excuse after excuse, just like Chuck Schumer told him to."
