Stick with retirement plan, Senator

Sen. Bob CorkerThe head of a Tennessee-based, pro-Israel Christian organization says that state's Republican senator should keep his word and not seek re-election.

U.S. Sen. Bob Corker announced last fall he was not seeking another term but in past days has said he is reconsidering that decision after colleagues encouraged him to do so.

Meanwhile, Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn has announced she is seeking the seat, and right now she is enjoying the backing of the so-called Establishment as well as grassroots, tea party support.

Laurie Cardoza-Moore of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations says Corker showed poor judgments over funding what eventually became known as ISIS.

"When it came to providing them with the military aid so that they could fight against Assad," she recalls, "and it ended up backfiring on Americans, and on Christians, because of his bad call when he was the ranking member of the Foreign Relations Committee."

Corker has also been criticized for cooperating with the Obama administration on the controversial Iran deal, and last fall he said President Donald Trump lacks the competence to succeed as president. 

Blackburn, meanwhile, has earned a reputation for a pro-Israel stance, says Cardoza-Moore, so in her view it's time for Corker to retire.
