Signs are clearly growing that Sen. Bob Corker (R) is considering reversing his retirement decision. Staff is now confirming that the Senator is conducting meeting to assess his re-election chances, and he is even going so far as to attempt to repair his broken relationship with President Trump after the two exchanged heated words during the past few months.
For her part, Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Brentwood) is beginning to rattle her own sabre, and clearly plans to stay in the Senate race regardless if Mr. Corker changes his mind. Early polling shows her to be considerably ahead of the two-term incumbent among likely Republican primary voters, so this Tennessee political situation is becoming more interesting by the day. The candidate filing deadline is April 5, with the Tennessee primary occurring August 2.
