Marsha Blackburn is the first woman ever elected to the United States Senate from Tennessee. Before ascending to that role, she represented Tennessee's 7th district in the United States Congress for sixteen years and served as a state senator for four years. She is known for her mastery of the political process, her fiery defense of her principles, and her wit. She calls herself a "hard-core, card-carrying Tennessee conservative," a woman who offers "no compromise, no apologies" for what she believes. Senator Blackburn is a mother to three, a grandmother to two, and wife to her husband, Chuck, to whom she has been married for over forty years. For more information, visit MarshaBlackburn.com.
