Phil Bredesen, the Democratic Senate candidate in Tennessee, said on Tuesday night that he won’t support Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) as the Senate Democratic leader.
Bredesen, during his opening comments in a debate, said Congress needs “to get new leadership.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“I can tell you right now that if I’m elected, and when I’m elected and go to Washington, I am not going to be voting for Chuck Schumer,” Bredesen said.
He added that “a lot of the problem” with Washington, D.C. — which he argued had become “hyper-partisan” — is the current leadership in both parties and that “they’re not doing the job.”
Bredesen is running for the Senate seat being vacated by GOP Sen. Bob Corker (Tenn.), who is retiring at the end of the year. He’s worked to distance himself from the national Democratic Party as he tries to win in the deep-red state.
