Republicans hold a slim 51-49 advantage in the Senate.

Asked why Tennessee voters should choose Republican U.S. Representative Marsha Blackburn over Democrat Phil Bredesen, Corker said: "Well, I think most people in our state - it is a red state - will focus on the first vote she makes".

Pressed on why he was not giving a more robust endorsement, Corker said after a considerable pause: "I'm supporting the nominee".

CNN reported that more than two dozen GOP lawmakers, ranging from rank-and-file members, conservatives and party leaders, refused to say they'd back Trump's re-election bid - a surprise declaration given that members of Congress are typically quick to endorse sitting presidents of their own party without hesitation. "I've worked with the nominee for some time, and I don't know what else to say". "I have said I'm going to plan to vote for this person", he said.

But this morning on CNN, host Dana Bash attempted to get Corker to explain why anyone ought to vote for Blackburn. "He was a very good mayor, very good governor, very good businessperson", Corker said of his longtime friend Bredesen. "Look, I'm not going to campaign against someone who I've been friends with and worked with".

Boko Haram Terrorists Surrender to Nigerian Troops
Numerous displaced persons returned to the town three weeks ago after authorities assured them of security. The United Nations believes the terror group has killed more than 20,000 people since 2009.

Bash then made a decision to ask him to define why he would endorse Blackburn over his buddy, Bredesen, but Corker evaded the question, simply noting her first vote would be an important factor.

"Do I think the president is going to run?"

Corker did not refer to Blackburn by name in either interview.

President Donald Trump later tweeted his full-throated support for Blackburn and pledged to come to Tennessee to campaign on her behalf.

"But look, we have a president who will sign legislation that we pass on the Republican side", Corker said.
