Corker won't campaign against Democratic Senate candidate

Washington Times -  Retiring GOP Sen. Bob Corker had some unusually warm words for the Democrat running for his job in November, saying Wednesday he would not campaign against former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen this fall.

In one of the pivotal races for control of the Senate, Mr. Corker told a Christian Science Monitor Breakfast event he would vote for presumptive Republican nominee Rep. Marsha Blackburn, but he would not actively stump against the Democrat.

“I don’t plan to campaign against a friend,” Mr Corker said.
