The polls show Tennessee's Senate race between Congressman Marsha Blackburn and former Gov. Phil Bredesen is neck and neck. That makes events like last week's debate at Cumberland University all the more crucial.
During the debate Bredesen and Blackburn highlighted some important differences as they tried to make their final cases to voters. WPLN's Chas Sisk and Sergio Martínez-Beltrán have been covering the race, and they sat down with Jason Moon Wilkins to talk about why this race is taking on national implications.
