WATCH: Lifelong Tennessee Republican Blasts Trump for Inciting More Divisiveness on MSNBC
MSNBC’s Chris Jansing is out in the field, getting midterm insights from Tennessee voters on the eve of Tuesday’s election.
In the clip excerpted above, meet Denise Seseler, a self-described lifelong Republican, who is just one woman representing the 26 point polling lead that Democratic senatorial candidate Phil Bredesen holds over GOP candidate Rep. Marsha Blackburn. Both are vying for the Senate seat vacated by Trump critic Bob Corker who chose not to run for re-election.
Seseler calmly established her Republican bona fides by explaining how she supported Corker in 2012, but that Trump’s rhetoric going back to 2016 has really turned her off of the Republican party.
Explaining that she’s grown tired of the toxic rhetoric that currently defines the political world, she pointed her finger of blame at President Donald Trump. “I just feel like it’s all partisan. It’s we, them. It’s not us anymore.” She added, “I think every time my tax dollars are used to fly trump to a rally so can incite divisiveness, it disheartens me further.”
