Schumer Gives Bredesen Permission to Weigh in on Kavanaugh

Oct. 5, 2018 -- After Phil Bredesen's much delayed position on Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court, Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Scott Golden issued the following statement:

"After 88 days, and once it was clear that Judge Kavanaugh would be confirmed, Senate Democrat boss Chuck Schumer has finally given Phil Bredesen permission to give his position on the nomination. This process has shown a clear contrast between the two candidates: Marsha Blackburn has been upfront and honest that she will vote to confirm constitutionalist judges and justices every time; Phil Bredesen has hemmed, hawed, delayed, and given every excuse imaginable before telling voters how he would vote. Marsha Blackburn stands with Tennesseans always, Phil Bredesen only does when its convenient."
