A new undercover video from Project Veritas Action features staff from Democrat Phil Bredesen’s U.S. Senate campaign admitting that he has been deceiving voters and attempting to appear more moderate than he actually is.
Bredesen, who was recently endorsed by Taylor Swift, has infamously claimed that he would have voted to confirm Justice Brett Kavanaugh — but his campaign says it is just a vote grab.
When asked by a PVA journalist if he would have really supported Kavanaugh, staffer Maria Amalla said that he would not have.
“No, it’s a political move… He thinks that like we’re down like half a point right now. It’s like really close and we’re losing by a point or two. So he thinks that if like by saying this he’s appealing to more moderate republicans and he’ll get more of them to vote for us.”
“I was so confused because I just can’t believe he would actually vote [for Kavanaugh],” the PVA journalist continued.
“He wouldn’t. But he’s saying he would… Which I don’t know if it makes it worse or better. No, it makes it better…” staffer Will Stewart added.
Amalla said that the claim that he would support Kavanaugh was an effort to win over Republicans because he is not doing very well in rural areas.
Stewart also said that Tennessee voters are “ignorant” for supporting the confirmation of now Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
When Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe attempted to get a comment from Bredesen’s campaign manager he was reportedly assaulted.
BOOM, stay tuned… this is going to be intense! I just tried asking the campaign manager for comment and got shoved! They are caught red handed! https://t.co/ZbaWCitHMh
