Tennessee Sens. Bill Hagerty and Marsha Blackburn will also be present. Blackburn can of course can usually be found on Twitter, calling undocumented immigrants “illegal” and blaming President Joe Biden for gas prices. Hagerty, a less prolific tweeter, always think “we need to #FinishTheWall.” Blackburn can be seen speaking at last year’s Road to Majority event herecondemning the Biden administration for being “comfortable with communist Chinese” and wanting to pass the Equality Act (a law that, if passed, would expand the Civil Rights Act to prohibit discrimination based on gender orientation and gender identity).
