Will Tennessee Send Its First Woman to the Senate?
On November 6, Tennessee voters will decide whether to elect the state’s first female senator, U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn. Six other women will have their electoral fates decided on the same day in Tennessee congressional elections. Blackburn and U.S. Rep. Diane Black are the only two Tennessee women currently serving in the U.S. House. Black lost the GOP gubernatorial nomination, so if Blackburn loses her Senate race, the Tennessee House delegation could become all male again.
