After the outcome of the 2018 midterm elections, there were many upsets across the country. As the GOP maintains control of the Senate, they’ve added a few new Senators to the list, one of which is Marsha Blackburn from Tennessee. Before winning her seat, she served as a U.S. Representative as well as in the Tennessee Senate.

She’s known for her very traditional conservative values, including being against same-sex marriage, anti-abortion, and voted against net neutrality and to repeal and replace the ACA. She was also a supporter of the “Birther Bill,” and even rejects the theory of evolution. Not surprisingly, she is also a supporter of the president.
