Taylor Swift is Supporting Dems in Tennessee, But Marsha Blackburn Just Recruited a NASCAR Legend

In the highly watched Tennessee Senate race between Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R) and former governor Phil Bredesen (D), each candidate has their share of celebrity endorsements.

Much attention was brought to Bredesen’s campaign after singer Taylor Swift endorsed him, however, Blackburn just received an endorsement from a popular figure that may have more sway than Swift.

In a new ad posted on her Twitter account, Darrell Waltrip, a three-time NASCAR Cup champion and NASCAR Hall of Famer, gave his support for Blackburn.

“I’m made a career out of going fast and turning left,” Waltrip states. “And that works on the track, but not so good in Washington.”

Waltrip goes to say Bredesen will “go along to get along” with Democrats on taxes, immigration, and Obamacare.

Watch the video below:

The endorsement is in stark contrast to why Swift endorsed the former governor in a post on her Instagram:

I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent. I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love.

“I will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives,” she added.

Real Clear Politics reports after Swift’s endorsement, most polling shows Blackburn leads Bredesen by a 6.5 point average.

So celebrities are only OK to express their views, but only if they are conservative?

How about celebrities will say what they want, but you are an idiot if that is the final deciding factor for who you will vote. Doesn’t matter what party the celebrity endorses.

I am thinking that Darrell Waltrip just might be a bigger name with the people who vote in Tennessee than Taylor Swift.
