Senator Bob Corker announces plans to leave the United State Senate.
The following is a statement from him:
After much thought, consideration and family discussion over the past year, Elizabeth and I have decided that I will leave the United States Senate when my term expires at the end of 2018.
When I ran for the Senate in 2006, I told people that I couldnt imagine serving for more than two terms. Understandably, as we have gained influence, that decision has become more difficult. But I have always been drawn to the citizen legislator model, and while I realize it is not for everyone, I believe with the kind of service I provide, it is the right one for me.
I also believe the most important public service I have to offer our country could well occur over the next 15 months, and I want to be able to do that as thoughtfully and independently as I did the first 10 years and nine months of my Senate career.
Serving the people of Tennessee in this capacity has been the greatest privilege of my life. And as I spent the month of August traveling across our great state, I was reminded that we live in a unique place full of people who care deeply about the direction of our country.
I am grateful to the people of Tennessee for the opportunity to serve my state and country. I have been fortunate to do so with an extraordinary staff, and I want to thank them for their incredible dedication. I know that we will continue to have an impact for the remainder of our term, and I look forward to finding other ways to make a difference in the future.
Finally, I want to thank my wife, Elizabeth, and our family, who have made many sacrifices in allowing me to serve. Nothing I have done would have been possible without their love and support.
One less RAT in the GOP!
I guess he heard that Judge Roy Moore was going to be victorious and the swamp is about the be drained.
Good News. A total Swamp creature gone.
The first coward who is afraid of being primaried.
Buh bye Corker. You will not be missed.
Look for this POS to become a lobbyist for the Iranian mullahs...
“Good News. A total Swamp creature gone”
Finally the prick does something good. By the way, thanks for the Iran deal,
I’d like to see his before politics income/assets, and after politics income/assets.
The first dominoe falling from the impending victory of Judge Moore against the Deep States candidate.
Gasperino saying how anti-Trump “straight shooter” Corker is on FOX biz.
