Not good.

................. Corker weighs his options as GOP frets about losing Tennessee

The two-term senator is being urged to reconsider his retirement amid concerns Republicans could lose his seat in November.

Asked to respond to Corkerís second thoughts and the coterie of Republicans pushing him to run again, Blackburnís campaign insisted she was in the race to stay, whether Corker runs or not. Blackburnís allies argue she will unite the GOP in the conservative state and crush Bredesen in the fall.

ďItís well past time for the good old boysí club in Washington, D.C., to quit thinking they know who the best candidate and conservative leader is for Tennessee families,Ē said Andrea Bozek, a spokeswoman for Blackburn.

Public polls show Blackburn is a heavy favorite over former Rep. Stephen Fincher in the primary to succeed Corker, and her allies argue the state is so Republican that she canít lose after winning the primary. Trump won nearly 2-to-1 against Hillary Clinton in Tennessee. She also raised $2 million in her first quarter as a candidate, a significant haul. Meanwhile, a Club for Growth poll from January showed Blackburn trouncing Corker.

Desperate Republicans turn to Adelson


The Club for Growth, which has spent millions in past elections to defeat more moderate Republicans, will stick with Blackburn regardless of whether Corker reverses course. Their poll showed Blackburn beating Fincher by more than 50 points and also showed Blackburn trouncing Corker.
