Marsha Blackburn Testing The Water For A 2016 Presidential Run

(WREG-TV) An aide for Tennessee Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn confirmed Thursday the representative is considering a run for president of the United States in 2016.

The aide told RealClearPolitics.com she will start the process of testing the waters at a GOP rally in New Hampshire this weekend.

The political website says with such a wide-open race, she may have a shot as the only Republican woman considering a presidential run.

Blackburn used to represent suburban Memphis, but her district is now mostly in Middle Tennessee.

The event will feature addresses by at least three other potential 2016 contenders: Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.
