Taylor Swift has been notably quiet about her political beliefs in the past few years, and drew heavy criticism for not taking a political stand during the 2016 election. Over the weekend, though, Swift took to Instagram to denounce the Senate campaign of Marsha Blackburn, a Republican, and to confirm that she would be voting for Phil Bredesen, a Democrat, for the state of Tennessee.
This is Swift’s largest political move in a long time- but it’s not the only one she’s ever made. Here’s what you need to know about Taylor Swift’s political leanings over the course of her life.
Swift Is Voting Democrat for the 2018 Midterms
Swift announced she would be voting for a double Democrat ticket in Tennessee for the midterms this fall, with Bredesen in Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives.
Bredesen immediately took to Twitter to thank her, tweeting, “Thank you for the kind words
@taylorswift13. I’m honored to have your support and that of so many Tennesseans who are ready to put aside the partisan shouting and get things done. We’re ready for it. Last day to register to vote is October 9.”
