Blackburn is running for a U.S. Senate seat in Tennessee which will be left open by the retirement of current senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.).
Earlier in the two-and-a-half-minute video, Blackburn claims that the "left calls me a wingnut or a knuckle-dragging conservative," criticizes the Senate's failure to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and affirms her support of Second-Amendment rights and the Trump Administration's immigration policies.
After investigative reporting by the Center for Medical Progress which revealed Planned Parenthood's practice of taking money from medical research companies in exchange for aborted fetal tissue, Blackburn chaired a Republican-run House panel to investigate the organization and fetal tissue research more broadly.
After their investigation, she and her panel urged Congress to stop the funding of Planned Parenthood.
