(WJHL) -One of Tennessee’s Senators weighed in on the 2016 Presidential election today.
Senator Bob Corker was adamant he is not endorsing a fellow Republican and doesn’t plan to endorse a candidate in the election.
But Corker lectured his own party, telling them to, “Focus more on listening to the American people and less on trying to stifle their voice.”
“What’s happening in the Republican primary is the result of two things: the fecklessness and ineptness of the Washington establishment in failing to address the big issues facing our country and years of anger with the overreach of the Obama administration,” Senator Corker said. “And to be candid, I think the American people should be angrier than they are.”
Corker’s comments came the same day former Presidential candidates Mitt Romney and John McCain publicly criticized GOP front-runner Donald Trump calling him unfit for office.
