Former Gov. Phil Bredesen said Monday he was “feeling good” about his chances in a tight race for U.S. Senate in Tennessee. The Democrat said getting supporters to the polls, “especially younger voters,” would be crucial in deciding today’s outcome.

Bredesen, who faces Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn on the ballot, began his campaign’s last statewide push before Election Day in Johnson City. He told supporters who greeted him at Cranberries Cafe, 1904 Knob Creek Road, there was “no better place to start one of the longest days” of the Senate campaign.

“I need your help one last day,” he told the crowd. “It’s a very close race, and it will come down to turnout.”

The two-term governor said it has been “an interesting campaign,” and one that has been “very noisy” in the media.
