GOP Rep. Marsha Blackburn, a candidate in Tennessee’s U.S. Senate race, during an interview with Fox Business pushed back against pop star Taylor Swift’s Instagram post that questioned her voting record on women’s issues.

“Of course I support women,” she told Connell McShane on Tuesday. “And I want violence to end against women. I’ve been very active in abuse shelters and child advocacy centers. I’ve been advocating for women and equal pay since I was 19-years-old and making certain that women have the opportunity for maximum pay and have a good record on that.”

Swift’s declaration that she plans to vote for Democrats next month broke a noticeable silence on political matters. In her post to her 1 million-plus followers on Instagram, she said she would “like to continue voting for women in office” but was appalled and terrified by Blackburn’s voting record.

“In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now. As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn,” Swift wrote in her lengthy post.

Blackburn currently leads Democrat Phil Bredesen by 8 points, according to a new CBS poll.
