CHATTANOOGA (AP) - U.S. Sen. Bob Corker says he doesn't have any regrets about sitting out this year's presidential campaign.
The Tennessee Republican in 2014 floated his name as a potential candidate, but announced by early the next year that he decided against making a bid.
Corker said after a recent Rotary Club speech in Chattanooga that he hasn't had any second thoughts about sitting out what has turned out to be a tumultuous campaign for the Republican nomination.
In the senator's words: "I don't think this year was necessarily the year that a candidate such as myself was what the country was looking for."
Corker has turned back speculation that Donald Trump might consider him as a running mate, saying it's not something he has any control over.
