New Ad: Phil's Partisan Squabbling

Sept. 7, 2018 -- The Tennessee Republican Party has released a new ad, highlighting Phil Bredesen's support for the most ardent Democratic obstructionists in the Senate. The ad will run on digital platforms statewide:


"While Phil Bredesen claims he wants to end 'partisan squabbling' in Washington, the fact is that the worst offenders are in his own party," said Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Scott Golden. "President Trump is fulfilling his promise to the American people to nominate constitutionalist judges and justices, but Senate Democrats are throwing up partisan roadblocks at every turn. A vote for Phil Bredesen is a direct vote for these obstructionists."

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) is leading the charge, saying he'd oppose the President with "everything I've got." When asked about the possibility of impeaching the President, Schumer said, "the sooner the better."

Schumer personally recruited Bredesen to run for Senate. Schumer's PAC donated $10,000 to Bredesen’s campaign earlier this year, and the Schumer aligned Senate Majority PAC has already booked more than $2 million in ads in Tennessee.

Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) claimed that to support a constitutionalist judge like Brett Kavanaugh was to be "complicit in the evil." Booker this week also falsely claimed to break Senate rules by releasing documents about Kavanaugh that were already released. 

Cory Booker has donated $5,000 to Bredesen's campaign and is holding a rally with Tennessee Democrats in Shelby County this weekend.
