Thursday on CNN’s “The Lead,” Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) welcomed President Donald Trump’s help in her bid to fill the U.S. Senate currently occupied by Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) in an interview with fill-in host Dana Bash.

Corker announced earlier this year he would not seek reelection. Blackburn said having Trump’s help “would be very helpful.”

Partial transcript as follows:

BLACKBURN: What I want to do is spend my time working with the voters of this state. And that is, that’s my focus.

You know, President Trump is very popular in Tennessee. And people are so encouraged by the work that he has done in passing tax reform, Gorsuch to the Supreme Court —

BASH: Would it help you if he came and campaigned with you or hurt you?

BLACKBURN: It probably would. It would probably be very helpful if he were to come.

We’re going to keep our focus on doing our job. That is what we do best, is tend to the work that is right in front of us, doing a great — good job, a great job, of the work that we have on our plate, making certain that we are working hard through this next year, and asking for the opportunity to earn every single vote that we can possibly earn.
