Rep. Marsha Blackburn, the day after President Donald Trump traveled to Nashville to support her campaign for Senate, said Wednesday she wants to continue taking Tennessee values, as she has done throughout her career.
"That is what Tennesseans want to see," the Republican candidate told Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "They love their country...faith, family, freedom, hope, opportunity. They want elected officials that also value those standards and principles. They really believe in the American dream."
Blackburn said people in her state are also excited by Trump's agenda, and with economic growth and wages that are going up.
Tennesseans also are excited about having more job opportunities, feeling that the nature is more secure, and knowing that they have a president who is "going to fight against sex trafficking, and gangs and securing our border, and keeping this nation safe," said Blackburn.
She also denied that Trump's trip to Tennessee, a usually conservative state, signals that he's worried about the results of the upcoming election.
"He is very popular in Tennessee," she said. "I was so pleased last night he talked some about national security because Fort Campbell is right there outside of Nashville, the 101st Airborne, has recently deployed. We had some of those families with us last night. And people loved hearing him build out a little bit more about those things."
