U.S. Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tennessee, told the Washington Post today that he has withdrawn from consideration as a potential running mate for presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump. Corker said he informed Trump of his decision while campaigning with him yesterday. “There are people far more suited for being a candidate for vice president, and I think I’m far more suited for other types of things,” Corker told the paper. But he praised Trump during the interview and said he remains eager to serve as an informal adviser to the candidate. According to WKRN, a tweet from Corker’s office today clarified that the senator would still be open to a cabinet position.
