Big Day for Senator Corker, Congresswoman Blackburn
Congratulations to Senator Bob Corker, who yesterday had the Senator-elect tag removed when he was sworn into the U.S. Senate by Vice President Dick Cheney.
The eyes of the state (and indeed the nation) are fixed upon Senator Corker as the nation's only new Republican in the Upper Chamber. He is putting together an excellent staff, and I suspect that he will be more than up for the challenges that lie ahead.
In addition, a hearty congratulations goes out to Marsha Blackburn for being selected as a Deputy GOP Whip yesterday. It is an honor to be selected as such and shows how Marsha is held in high standing by her colleagues.
