Sen. Bob Corker makes stops in West Tennessee

BOLIVAR, Tenn. — Sen. Bob Corker is using the month of August to tour the Volunteer State.

Sen. Bob Corker“It’s a great opportunity for me to answer questions people have and take in their comments, which we respond to, so it’s been a wonderful recess. It really has,” Sen. Corker said.

He spoke to West Tennessee residents Monday morning, starting the day in Bolivar.

“It makes us much more fully aware of how some of the federal policies in place are impacting people on the ground and things we need to look at altering,” Sen. Corker said.

The Republican senator was careful not to endorse a presidential candidate but said there are some issues voters should carefully consider.

“I talk about the economic issues our country is dealing with. I talk about the fiscal issues our nation is dealing with, and just America’s role in the world. I do so without mentioning any candidate names,” Corker said.

Corker heard concerns from citizens about education, technology and veterans’ affairs. He said one of his top priorities includes getting America’s economic situation in order.

“Our fiscal issue is the one that to me is the most difficult today. But our job is to solve those and make sure we leave this country better than we found it for the next generation,” Corker said.

The senator made two more stops Monday in Milan and Alamo.
