Blackburn Campaign Statement on Johnson’s Senate Announcement

Brentwood, TN – The Marsha for U.S. Senate campaign released the following statement after news that radical socialist State Representative Gloria Johnson will run against Marquita Bradshaw and others for the Democratic nomination for Senate:

“It’s no surprise that radical socialist Gloria Johnson decided to jump into the race at the urging of liberals in Washington, joining Marquita Bradshaw and others in the race for the Democratic nomination. State Rep. Johnson is as woke as they come, and she would be a puppet for Joe Biden, the Squad, and Chuck Schumer in the Senate. While Senator Blackburn is working hard to fight back against Biden’s woke agenda, State Rep. Johnson is pushing that divisive, destructive agenda here in Tennessee. Tennesseans deserve a United States Senator who is committed to fighting for our conservative values. Senator Blackburn will continue her record of getting things done and fighting for Tennessee families.” – Abigail Sigler, Blackburn campaign spokesman

In 2018, U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn defeated Governor Phil Bredesen, the last Democrat to win statewide, by nearly 11 points. She serves as Tennessee’s first elected female United States Senator.
