Upon hearing the news, Blackburn released a statement saying, "Tennessee families want change and that is not what 74-year-old Democrat politician Phil Bredesen will bring to the United States Senate".

Nashville attorney James Mackler, who formally announced months ago his candidacy, is showing no signs of dropping his bid for Bredesen. He cruised to re-election in 2006, garnering more votes than any gubernatorial candidate in Tennessee history and sweeping all 95 counties against Republican opponent Jim Bryson.

Bredesen earned his fortune as a health care entrepreneur and served two terms each as Nashville mayor and governor. In a video announcing his candidacy, Bredesen again sounded centrist themes, touting his experience as governor and his ability to work across party lines.

On the Republican side, U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, former Congressman Stephen Fincher and Dr. Rolando Toyos are seeking the nomination.
