Former U.S. Congressman Stephen Fincher said yesterday that he is “very close” to entering the race to replace U.S. Senator Bob Corker, who announced he would not seek reelection earlier this year, the Memphis Daily News reports. Fincher, a Republican, said he believes voters want Republicans who will “stand up with President Trump, who is right on all of the policy.” He said he will formally announce his decision later this week. U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn has already announced her candidacy for the Republican nomination, while attorney James Mackler and, potentially, Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke and former Gov. Phil Bredesen, will run on the Democratic side.
