Phil Bredesen Will Block President Trump’s Supreme Court Nominees

July 9, 2018 - Nashville, Tenn. – Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Scott Golden released the following statement on Phil Bredesen’s stance on the Supreme Court: 

"Phony Phil Bredesen already has two million reasons to fall in line with Chuck Schumer’s agenda -  the top of that list is blocking the President’s good nominees to the Supreme Court. He can spew moderate talking points all he wants, but the fact remains national Democrats who are propping up his candidacy will call on him to block Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination, and he will fall right in line. After all he was personally recruited by Chuck Schumer. Tennesseans want a Senator who will support the President’s good constitutionalist nominees like Judge Kavanaugh, and they can’t trust Phil Bredesen to do that."
