"And as I spent the month of August traveling across our great state, I was reminded that we live in a unique place full of people who care deeply about the direction of our country", Corker said in a statement Tuesday. Lamar Alexander's seat in 2020 if he chooses to retire as well.

It doesn't look like Peyton Manning is sticking to sports.

In June, Manning played golf with Tennessee Sen.

Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said he will not seek re-election next year.




Manning did speak at the congressional Republican leaders' winter retreat in Philadelphia in January so he has that in his background, but as of yet Manning has not alluded to the fact that he will run for a senate seat. During Corker's first campaign in 2006, Manning gave Corker $2,100 in both the primary and general elections.

In March, while speaking at the Adobe Summit in Las Vegas, Manning addressed previous rumors of his involvement in politics. (You can read about them here.) I have told more than one person the true fact that Archie Manning, Peyton's father and a legendary figure in college football and a Hall of Fame quarterback himself, is the nicest person I ever met in this business. "I have no interest in the political world, but would like to continue serving communities".

"Everybody likes Peyton Manning, including me", Alexander said.

Former state Rep. Stephen Fincher, who retired from Congress a year ago, told The Tennessean he will decide by the end of the week whether he will run.
