“While 5G implementation is vital to our continued growth and prosperity, we must remain cognizant of the fact that 23% of rural Tennessee communities remain unserved or underserved,” Senator Blackburn said.
Washington, D.C. – Today, Tuesday, January 7th, 2020, Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) joined Fox Business’s Mornings with Maria to discuss the death of Quds Force leader Qasem Soleimani, as well as the latest with impeachment and the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.
On Iran: “When you hear these threats coming from Iran…what we have to realize is that Soleimani was their mastermind. This is a guy that for two decades, he had pushed forward, built the Quds Force [which] had about twenty thousand people in it. He’s got a cyber unit, a finance unit, a political unit, and he had been responsible for killing hundreds of Americans.”
Washington, D.C. – In response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s unprecedented attempt to prevent an impeachment trial in the U.S. Senate, Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) has joined Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) to introduce a resolution updating Senate rules to allow a motion to dismiss articles of impeachment for lack of prosecution.

Washington, D.C. – We accomplished a lot in Washington in 2019, but you probably didn’t hear about it from the mainstream media; they were (and still are!) hyperfocused on impeachment. From giving our military the largest pay raise in a decade, to protecting the sanctity of life, I spent my first year in the Senate fighting for Tennessee values.
In 2020, I will continue to advocate for what Tennesseans consistently tell me is most important to them: protecting family values, fighting to expand rural health care and broadband access, helping workers succeed, and securing the nation.
Nashville, TN – One year ago today, Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) was sworn in as the first female Senator for the state of Tennessee.
“Thank you for the support I have received from Tennesseans this year. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the Volunteer State,” said Senator Blackburn. “We have been blessed with a productive year that has brought progress on issues facing Tennesseans.”
Tennessee Values: “When I came to Washington for my first term in the Senate, I pledged to bring my Tennessee Values along with me, and defend faith, family, freedom, hope, and opportunity. We have a big year ahead of us and I will keep that momentum alive.”
Marsha Blackburn, John Kennedy Join Steve Scalise, 200+ Members in Supporting Louisiana’s Pro-Life Law
Washington, D.C. – Senators Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and John Kennedy (R-La.), House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), and Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.) led 207 Members of Congress in filing an amicus brief to stand up for Louisiana’s pro-life law before the U.S. Supreme Court that would require all abortion providers to have admitting privileges at local hospitals when emergencies arise.
“States reserve the right to protect mothers and their children with high standards for health care providers—and abortionists remain subject to such high standards. I hope the Supreme Court will issue a ruling that safeguards women’s health and that is consistent with the Constitution’s guarantee for states’ rights,” Senator Blackburn stated.
Washington, D.C. – If the commentariat are to be believed, nothing has happened this year in our nation’s capital outside the scope of impeachment.
Funny thing about that: while most of Washington and the mainstream media were focused on the story of the day, I knew that back home, Tennesseans wanted to see a values-driven agenda that didn’t hinge on the Republican Party’s success in the 24-hour news cycle.
It wasn’t an easy thing to pull off. It took a lot of elbow grease to drag the Senate’s collective attention outside of the Beltway and into the homes and businesses of the American people; but I left my office for the last time in 2019 feeling a deep sense of gratitude for all I was able to accomplish on behalf of my fellow Tennesseans.
