It’s ‘Politics 101’
State Rep. Matthew Hill said the White House’s attention is not a sign of desperation. Rather, it’s simply “politics 101.” He said it makes sense to have a leader of a party come stump for an important race.
He said the thousands of people who showed up Monday all know the importance of the soon-to-be-vacated Senate seat.
“The whole purpose is to highlight how important it is in getting Blackburn elected … at the end of the day they need to get someone who can get a Constitutionalist on the Supreme Court …
“To have an additional person behind (Trump’s agenda) on the U.S. Senate is a big, big deal,” he continued. “Every vote counts and having a strong conservative like Marsha Blackburn on there is important.”
Outside the Tennessee Senate race, Hill said it made sense for Trump to come to Johnson City because of its proximity to other states. Residents from North and South Carolina, Virginia, Kentucky and West Virginia were all expected to show up at the rally.
