Peyton Manning Not Interested in Running For Bob Corker’s Senate Seat

Football star Peyton Manning is ruling out a bid for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by the retirement of Republican Bob Corker, saying in a sports radio interview that he is giving “zero consideration” to running.

The former NFL and University of Tennessee quarterback tells WGFX-FM that while he has an interest in politics he has “zero interest in being a politician.”

Corker told reporters in Washington earlier Wednesday that he hopes Manning will consider public service in the future.

Manning’s political future has long been a source of speculation, especially after a highly publicized golf outing with President Donald Trump and Corker earlier this year. Manning also attended a Republican congressional retreat.
