Republican Sens. Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker issued statements soon after the announcement.

Bob Corker still seems to be on the fence about whether to reverse his decision to retire and get back into the race for Senate.

But in a busy weekend for Republicans across Tennessee, the main contender for the Republican nomination, Congressman Marsha Blackburn, sought to make clear that he'd have to fight her if he hopes to come back.

Sen. Bob Corker just came out in support of the GOP tax bill. Initially he was worried about its impact on the federal deficit. But fellow Tennessee Republican, Sen. Lamar Alexander, who peddled the plan Friday morning at the Rotary Club of Brentwood, says he thinks the plan will help the nation's debt.

Senator Bob Corker said he is "disappointed" to announce he won’t be voting for the current tax overhaul plan.

In a statement released Friday afternoon, the Tennessee Republican said he supports a number of provisions in the legislation and that the tax bill could be fixed to be more fiscally sound and still encourage economic growth.

Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker delivered his harshest criticism yet of President Donald Trump on Tuesday, again questioning the Republican leader's competency, calling the president untruthful, and implying for the first time that he now regrets supporting Trump.

U.S. Representative Marsha Blackburn says the Senate is slowing down President Trump's agenda.

Her remarks come amid an ongoing dispute between Trump and Bob Corker. And while she's declining to call out Tennessee's current senator, she's making it clear she wants them to move on.

Tennessee Senator Bob Corker has his first Republican challenger next year — if he decides to seek re-election.

Conservative activist Andrew Ogles announced Thursday that he's running for the seat, which Corker has held since 2007. Others might not be far behind.

Internet pranksters — and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich — have been inundating Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker with calls after he criticized President Trump's response to the violence last weekend in Charlottesville, Va.

But Corker isn't expressing any regrets.

A day after Corker complained that Trump isn't showing the "competence" or "stability" needed to be president, the Tennessee Republican spoke again to reporters following a breakfast engagement at the Omni Nashville Hotel. Corker said he isn't sorry he supported Trump in the general election or for his past praise of the president, but he does want Trump to become a unifier, rather than a divisive figure.
