Hey, here’s a thought: If you’re the chair of the Tennessee Democratic Party, you might want to make sure you have at least a basic understanding of politics in Tennessee.
Tennessee Republicans recently dug up a July 2017 tweet from Democratic operative Mark Brown, who wrote “f*ck reaching out to Trump voters. The idiots aren’t listening.” The “Nashville Resist” account, for one, thinks that’s a super-uncool move on the GOP’s part:
.@VoteMarsha attacks on @TNDP's @Gilgamark being dismissed by even Republican operatives. But then, what else do you have to talk about when you're avoiding discussing #RussianConspiracy?https://t.co/GuoElZeZCF

And Tennessee Democratic Party Chair Mary Mancini totally agrees. The Tennessee GOP is obviously just trying to deflect from Marsha Blackburn’s record:
And what else do you have to talk about when Marsha Blackburn has done nothing for the people of TN. Her track record as a senator is a non-existent. https://t.co/nKKJzXRiIC

Well, we certainly can’t argue with that, Mary.
I agree she has done nothing as a Senator. https://t.co/GzuX6DcJQg

Turns out there’s a pretty good reason for that:
(she’s not a senator)

Hey, genius. She’s not a senator.

Maybe that’s because she’s not a Senator! 🤪 Try and keep up!

Not yet, anyway. But if Mary Mancini’s the best Tennessee Dems have to offer, Blackburn should be juuuuuust fine.
