Corker Reconsidering Retirement

Sen. Bob Corker is “listening” to Republicans pushing for him to abandon his plans to retire at the end of his term, Politico reports. Corker announced in September that he would not run for reelection, triggering many high-profile names to step into the race, including 7th district U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn and former Democratic Gov. Phil Bredesen. A poll taken last month shows Bredesen with the edge over Blackburn, prompting concern from Republicans. Today in response, a Blackburn spokeswoman called anyone who doubts Blackburn’s chances a “sexist pig," The Tennessean reports.
