Marsha Blackburn Report: This Week From Washington – October 13th, 2019

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – I’ve had quite the week catching up with folks in fourteen different counties, all across our great state. Traveling hundreds of miles has allowed me to connect with Tennesseans and hear what’s on their minds.

My fellow Tennesseans have made one thing crystal clear: they are sick and tired of the partisan charades going on in Washington. It was refreshing to hear from local leaders about the real issues our communities are facing, as opposed to the latest outrage overtaking Washington.
