Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) recently made a trip to New Hampshire on Friday, kicking off a firestorm of speculation that Blackburn may be preparing to launch a presidential campaign.
While Blackburn’s stated purpose for visiting New Hampshire is to fundraise for Republicans in the 2022 midterm elections, that hasn’t stopped speculation from intensifying.
To further reinforced speculation that Blackburn is preparing to run for President, the Senator from Tennessee will be headlining the Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition’s 22nd Annual Spring Kick-Off next month.
Chris Ager, an RNC member from New Hampshire, said that “She is a legitimate national figure with a strong conservative message, and I think people will take her very seriously.”
For now, though, Senator Blackburn is focusing on 2022. Senator Blackburn said, “I’m working to make certain we take the majority back in 2022. And in Iowa, I will be there to help and support Sen. Grassley and the members of Congress. We’ve got great female members there. We’re really proud of Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds.”
Senator Blackburn will be an important figure to keep an eye on, especially once the midterms are over. The Republican field so far is looking small, with just Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and former President Donald Trump as the only serious contenders.
