Sen. Bob Corker (R), who still has not officially committed to running for a third term, drew a primary opponent yesterday. Andy Ogles, the Tennessee leader of the state Americans for Prosperity chapter, announced that he will enter next year’s Republican primary. State Sen. Mark Green (R-Clarksville), who was President Trump’s original choice for US Army Secretary but withdrew before the confirmation process began, is also a potential Senate candidate. Sen. Corker is expected to run for re-election, but continually leaving the door open for retirement casts doubts upon whether he will actually begin to campaign.
