Peyton Manning says he has no interest in running for Bob Corker’s seat

DENVER, Colorado (WDEF) – Count former Vols quarterback Peyton Manning out of the race to replace Bob Corker in the Senate.

Corker, himself, predicted that Manning could win if he ran, but that he wouldn’t.

The retired football star told a Denver radio station on Wednesday that he was giving the race “zero consideration.”

He says he has an interest in politics and the country, but not in becoming a politician.

Senator Corker says he hopes Manning will someday consider public service.

He said that Peyton had texted him after his retirement announcement asking him not to fan the flames for a Manning candidacy.

Manning has certainly rubbed elbows recently with Republicans.

He played golf with President Trump and Corker earlier this year.

And he attended a Republican congressional retreat.
