Aug 9, 2010

Senator Bob Corker made a surprise Pachyderm Club appearance on Monday as club officials stressed unity after a contentious primary election.

 

Senator Corker, in casual attire, received a standing ovation as he entered near the close of the meeting at the Doubletree Hotel.

 

He was called to the podium and told of Saturday's GOP unity session in Nashville attended by gubernatorial candidates Bill Haslam, Zach Wamp and Ron Ramsey.

 

Senator Corker said primaries can be grueling, but he said, "There is no question that having Ed (Bryant) and Van (Hilleary) in the primary made me a better candidate."
