Honorable Marsha Blackburn
United States Representative, Tennessee, Republican
Representative Blackburn, of the Seventh District of Tennessee, was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2002. She served in the Tennessee Senate from 1998 to 2002. She sits on the Energy and Commerce Committee and is a Deputy Minority Whip.
