Nashville, Tenn. (September 20, 2017) – Mary Mancini, chair of the Tennessee Democratic Party, released the following statement on Senator Corker not seeking re-election:

“It’s clear that Senator Corker didn’t have the courage to go through an election cycle defending his support for the disastrous Republican healthcare plans that would have raised premiums, instituted an age tax, and thrown hundreds of thousands of Tennesseans off of their insurance. Tennesseans deserve voices that fight for them, not billionaires or political parties.”
