With the announcement that Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) is retiring, House Communications Subcommittee chair Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) has thrown her hat into the ring.
The announcement came in a YouTube video in which Blackburn ripped her own party on the way to declaring herself a candidate for Corker's seat.
She called herself a politically incorrect, 100% pro-life, card-carrying (and concealed gun permit carrying) conservative who stands for the National Anthem and would help President Trump build a wall--she was on the Trump transition team.
She said the fact that the Republican majority in the Senate was a disgrace. She said too many Senate Republicans act like Democrats, or worse, though she did not say what could be worse than a Democrat.
Blackburn said she was running to make the Republican majority act like one.
Another name floated for the seat is better known for passing than running: Former Broncos and University of Tennessee quarterback Peyton Manning.
