Bob Corker

Bob Corker

In 2012, Tennesseans overwhelmingly re-elected Bob Corker to his second term in the United States Senate, where he serves as chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee and is an active member of the Banking Committee and the Budget Committee.

Corker was Tennessee’s commissioner of finance and mayor of Chattanooga, but he spent most of his life in business. It’s that results-driven businessman’s perspective that allowed him to make a mark early in his Senate tenure and become a pragmatic thought leader on fiscal and financial issues.

Since taking office in 2007, Corker also has visited more than 70 countries to gain a deeper understanding of the strategic relationships between the U.S. and other nations, and in 2015, his colleagues elected him chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee.

Corker graduated from the University of Tennessee in 1974 with a degree in Industrial Management. He and his wife of 30 years, Elizabeth, live in Chattanooga.
