June 13, 2019 (NASHVILLE, Tenn.) – Tennessee Democratic Party Chair Mary Mancini released the following statement in response to reports that U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) blocked legislation to require campaigns to report any offers of foreign assistance to the FBI:

“Americans have an expectation that our elected officials be loyal to the United States and to the people they represent. Today, Marsha Blackburn sent a message to foreign governments that it’s okay for them to meddle in our elections, demonstrating that her loyalty lie not with us but with one man, Donald Trump, who openly said he would conspire with our adversaries to win reelection. Blackburn‘s actions were subversive to our democracy and our freedom.”
