Taylor Swift is speaking out against ‘fear-based extremism’.
The songstress, who earlier this month urged her fans to vote in the midterms -marking the first time she has publicly addressed her political leanings – shared another post on Tuesday about the upcoming election.
Swift, 28, continued to show her support for Democratic Tennessee Senate candidate Phil Bredesen with a photo posing beside a ‘Bredesen’ poster with her mom Andrea Swift, 60.

‘These two Tennessee women voted for the candidate who has proven himself to be reasonable and trustworthy,’ Taylor began her caption.
‘We want leadership, not fear-based extremism. Early voting goes til Thursday and Election Day is November 6. Please don’t sit this one out.’ she added.
The Love Story hitmaker is seen wearing black skinny jeans and a v-neck sweater with a hat covering her blonde locks while she waves an American flag.
Swift’s post comes just days after Florida native Cesar Sayoc, a passionate Donald Trump supporter, was arrested for mailing multiple pipe bombs to prominent democrats across the country.

‘I’ll be voting’: Taylor’s first post about the elections came on October 7, the first time she has publicly addressed her political leanings
Since he started campaigning for the presidency in 2015 Trump has been accused of encouraging extremist views in the US with his nationalist opinions and has been accused of siding with white supremacists.
The president was also criticized this weekend for joking about his ‘bad hair day’ hours after 11 people were gunned at a synagogue in Pennsylvania.
Swift’s latest post comes after she revealed in a October 7 post that she would be voting for Bredesen instead of the Republican incumbent, Marsha Blackburn.
She wrote: In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now,
‘I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG.
Star power: After Taylor’s first post on October 7 voter registration spiked by 65,000 in a 24-hour period
‘I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent. I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love.
‘Running for Senate in the state of Tennessee is a woman named Marsha Blackburn. As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn.’ sheadded.
Days later it was reported that voter registration had spiked by 65,000 in a single 24-hour period.
Kamari Guthrie, Vote.org’s director of communications, told Buzzfeed that registration in Swift’s adopted state of Tennessee saw 2,144 new voter registrations over 36 hours. The state saw a total of 2,811 voters signing up the month prior.
