Sen. Bob Corker rethink supposedly retired
The Tennessee Republican senator, allegedly, is to listen carefully to and pushing shows of his fellow lawmakers in the midst of internal polling that the rep Marsha Blackburn could lose the seat in November.
Tennessee sen Bob Corker is “listening” in the midst of the encouragement to reconsider from some Republicans to run his decision up for re-election this year, a spokesman for the GOP lawmakers.
“In the last days, people in Tennessee have to determine to Senator Corker, the concerns about the outcome of this election, because they believe that they could control of the Senate and the future of our agenda,” Micah Johnson, a Corker spokesperson, told Fox News. “The senator was rethinking stimulated, his decision and listen carefully.”
Corker has recently held conversations with the White house and his Republican colleagues in the Senate about the possibility of repentance, had his decision to retire, Fox News has learned. But those who recognise in the vicinity Corker he will have to move quickly, to jump back into the campaign mode. The application deadline in the U.S. state of Tennessee is 5. April.
Other Republicans, including the conservative Tennessee Rep. Marsha Blackburn, already campaigning for the position.
There are concerns, though, to reflect some of the Republicans, the Democrats would have a decent shot of the seat: A recent poll conducted by Republican pollster Glen Bolger and obtained by Fox News, shows the Democrat, Phil Bredesen, with a 47 percent to Blackburn 45 percent in a hypothetical matchup. The GOP currently holds a slim 51-49 majority in the Senate.
THE REPUBLICANS TRY TO RUN TENNESSEE’S CORKER AGAIN, OUT OF FEAR OF LOSING THE SEAT
Others have the argument Corker, the Chairman of the Senate foreign relations Committee, his foreign policy knowledge is crucial, with Arizona Republican Senator John McCain in a poor state of health and the house Foreign Chairman Ed Royce, a Virginia Republican, in this year.
The Blackburn campaign, with spokesman Andrea Bozek, Fox News, “can anyone who believes that Marsha Blackburn will not win a General election, only a simple sexist pig to say.”
“She’s the best fundraiser in the country and is against Phil Bredesen in several surveys,” said Bozek. “We are not worried about this ego-driven, tired, old men. Marsha has spent her whole life against people who told her she wasn’t good enough and they will do it again.”
A survey published in December by a political action committee, President of Trump supports had Blackburn in front of Bredesen 43 percent to 34 percent. The influence of conservative players, such as the Club for Growth and the Koch political network, have also stated that they would be running stick with Blackburn even if Corker.
