Rumors are again beginning to swirl around Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker (R). He is yet another Senator who is reportedly considering a race for Governor. The Republican incumbent, Gov. Bill Haslam, is ineligible to seek a third term, so we will see an open Volunteer State gubernatorial campaign in 2018. Sen. Corker is also in-cycle for re-election, so if he chooses to run for Governor he would risk his Senate seat. Tennessee political musical chairs will begin when Mr. Corker makes a decision as to which race he will pursue.
