Corker selected by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA - Time magazine has again listed their 100 Most Influential People in the World, and a certain U.S. Senator from the Volunteer State is among them.

Corker's office said Thursday that U.S. Senator Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is one of the hundred people on the 2015 Time 100, its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Time's list includes people such as North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, Kanye West,  Bradley Cooper, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Jorge Ramos.

“I am grateful that Tennesseans have given me the tremendous privilege of serving them in the United States Senate, and I am deeply humbled by this honor,” said Corker. “I wake up every day trying to find ways to move our country ahead, and for as long as Tennesseans afford me this opportunity, I will remain focused on solving the big domestic and foreign policy issues facing our nation.”

The tribute to Corker was written by Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Tennessee's senior senator, former governor and former secretary of the U.S. Department of Education.
