Taylor Swift has finally entered politics by endorsing the Democrat candidate for Senate in Tennessee.
According to The Daily Wire:
Taylor Swift, the 28-year-old singer who dropped out of high school and later earned a GED, jumped into the political fray on Sunday, declaring that she opposes Tennessee Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn.
While not surprising that a young person would lean liberal, Swift announced that she will back former Tennessee governor Phil Bredesen for the Senate seat. Bredesen, though, recently angered Democrats and rabid liberals by announcing that he would have supported Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination for the Supreme Court, declaring that there was no evidence to support last-minute sexual assault allegations against him.
The hardcore left MoveOn immediately pulled its support after Bredesen’s announcement. “We’re cancelling a planned six-figure digital video ad expenditure for Phil Bredesen in Tennessee due to his Kavanaugh position. And similarly will be pulling all planned campaigning on behalf of Joe Manchin in West Virginia if he votes yes. Kavanaugh is unfit for the Court,” MoveOn.org wrote on Twitter.

We’re not sure if MoveOn will pull its endorsement of Swift’s music.
Thank you for the kind words @taylorswift13. I’m honored to have your support and that of so many Tennesseans who are ready to put aside the partisan shouting and get things done. We’re ready for it. Last day to register to vote is October 9. https://t.co/6Xd6YyaJCG pic.twitter.com/CatUBkXPKe

Despite the endorsement of Kavanaugh hurting his funding Bredesen seems to welcome the Swift endorsement with open arms.
