  • James White says:

    This is frightening, considering Marsha supports and votes for so many Unconstitutional bills. Me thinks the state senators aren’t too savvy either.

  • STEVE L. says:

    For those who object to Blackburn’s candiency, please list who else we should for in this election. I am a Conservative independent looking for options. I will not protest vote or protest not vote.
