Speculation surrounding Senator Corker

On September 26, 2017, Republican Senator Bob Corker announced that he would not seek reelection in 2018.[20] Without Corker running, it was widely believed that the Republican Party would have a much harder time keeping the seat. Many called on Corker to reverse his decision to retire. Former U.S. Representative Fincher dropped out of the race, calling on Corker to jump back in and challenge U.S. Representative Blackburn for the GOP nomination. Fincher said in a statement that the GOP should unite "behind a candidate who can win" the general election. Blackburn said she would remain in the race even if Corker reversed his decision. Amid the speculation about Corker's decision, many of Tennessee's Republican politicians, including many in the Tennessee General Assembly, reiterated their support for Blackburn.[21] Corker's chief of staff announced on February 27, 2018, that Corker would stick with his plan to retire.[22]
