Tennessee congressman says Peyton Manning might be considering a run for Senate

Speculation abounds over Peyton Manning running for Senate

"It's not that Peyton shouldn't be taken seriously, but right now I think there's more people talking about Peyton than Peyton is talking about the Senate", Ingram said.

News of Manning's rumored interest in politics comes on the heels of Corker's decision not to seek re-election in 2018.

"Peyton Manning is the kind of guy that would be great in public office.I think it's possible", Corker said Wednesday.

"Understandably, as we have gained influence, that decision has become more hard". With an open seat and Democrats sensing a chance for a flip, the party may chose to seek a more seasoned candidate to lead the race, rather than Mackler who is only now making his first steps in the political world. Just a year ago, when a seat opened up in the 8th District, a whopping 13 Republicans competed.


Republican Rep. Scott DesJarlais, a representative from Tennessee's fourth district, spoke highly of Manning, but told Business Insider a Senate run for Sen. The ambitious eight-term lawmaker had been mentioned as a likely contender should Sen. Lamar Alexander's seat if he decides to retire in 2020. She ended the second quarter with $3.1 million.

It is "possible" that former National Football League quarterback Peyton Manning could run for Tennessee's soon-to-be open seat in the U.S. Senate, retiring Sen.

Asked if she would consider running for Senate, Blackburn told reporters Tuesday afternoon, "I don't know". He has $2.4 million remaining in his federal campaign account.
