Former Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and U.S. Rep. Mark Green both confirmed today that they would not seek the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate next year when current Sen. Lamar Alexander retires, the Tennessean reports. "While I think serving in the United States Senate would be a great privilege and responsibility, I have come to the conclusion that it is not my calling for the next period of my life," Haslam said. Green said he would be focusing his time on helping re-elect President Donald Trump and winning back GOP control of the House.
