Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), the front-running candidate for U.S. Senate in Tennessee, told Breitbart News on Thursday that even if Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) comes out of retirement and attempts to run for re-election to the U.S. Senate seat he currently holds, she is going nowhere.
“No,” Blackburn said when asked if Corker changing his mind would change hers. “I have made my decision. I made my decision to get in the race and I am in the race to stay. We are running well, and I plan to win.”
Corker, this past week, floated the potential of changing his plans to retire at the end of this term and running again for the seat he currently holds.
“In recent days, people across Tennessee have reached out to Senator Corker with concerns about the outcome of this election because they believe it could determine control of the Senate and the future of our agenda,” Corker spokesman Micah Johnson said, per the New York Times.
