Marsha Blackburn’s Senate campaign slammed anyone suggesting the Tennessee congresswoman can’t win the November general election as a "sexist pig."
The comments, from campaign spokeswoman Andrea Bozek, follow reports that Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., is fielding requests to reconsider his decision not to run for re-election.
Some Tennessee Republicans are worried Blackburn won’t be able to win a general election against former Tennessee Gov.
Phil Bredesen, who is expected to secure the Democratic nomination.
“Anyone who thinks Marsha Blackburn can’t win a general election is just a plain sexist pig,” Andrea Bozek, a spokeswoman for Blackburn’s Senate campaign, told the Washington Post.
