Tosh, a third-generation farmer who almost always votes Republican, said he’s voting this fall for Blackburn’s Democratic opponent, former Gov. Phil Bredesen, in part because Trump’s trade wars are hurting his family business — a sizable one with some 400 employees and 30,000 pigs. The cost of steel needed for new barns is up, Tosh said, and the expanding pork market stands to suffer under new tariffs.
Congressman Marsha Blackburn has continued to waffle around, not coming out and supporting the working men and women of Tennessee, and waiting for these tariffs to kill our good paying jobs. She doesn’t get how these tariffs will affect Tennessee’s hard-working men and women.
