The candidates for the competitive U.S. Senate race in Tennessee have cast their votes.

Congressman Marsha Blackburn voted early in Williamson County last week.

Former Gov. Phil Bredesen voted at his polling location in Forest Hills on Tuesday morning. He said his gut tells him this week is going well.

When Bredesen spoke to the media, he touched on everything from partisanship to Taylor Swift's endorsement of him, highlighting how critical her push for young people to vote has been.

President Trump has made three trips to Tennessee during this election cycle to campaign for Blackburn.

Blackburn has run her campaign on traditional Republican values.
