“As you all know, we’ve been having a busy up in Washington, D.C.,” stated Blackburn. “As I left yesterday, Senator Cruz and I have a bill that would force the President to do a couple of things and make certain that number one, we secure our southern border. And that we end this push of illegal immigration that is coming across our border.”

“I had a great meeting this morning with some of our local teachers. And I have to tell you that it reaffirms my believe that we need to get rid of common core and replace it with common sense,” stated Blackburn.
