Former Judge Bob Corlew Announces Candidacy for GOP Nomination in 6th Congressional District

Former Chancery Court Judge Bob Corlew announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for Congress in the 6th Congressional District on Wednesday.

“I have dedicated my life to public service, not political service, serving my community and my country. I am a veteran, a teacher, a servant leader, but most importantly, I am a grandpa of eight wonderful grandchildren,” Corlew said in a statement released by his campaign.

“I am a Christian Conservative who believes Tennessee’s values are worth fighting for. President Trump needs folks who will work with him, not against him, and I will work with President Trump to make our community and our country great again,” Corlew added.

“In 2017, Corlew served as Lions Club International President after retiring from thirty years of service as a judge, most recently serving Cannon and Rutherford Counties as Chancery Court Judge,” the statement noted.

A video of Corlew’s campaign announcement has been posted on his campaign website, and can be seen here as well:

Corlew joins two other Republicans seeking the 6th Congressional District seat Rep. Diane Black (R-TN-06) has said she will not seek to retain in 2018 since she is a candidate for governor.

Former Tennessee Agriculture Commissioner John Rose and State Rep. Judd Matheny (R-Tullahoma) have already announced their candidacies, and other potential candidates are considering getting into the race.

  1. Charlie

    I suggest all District 6 voters look closely at each of the congressional candidates and their actual public record over the past 6-8 years. Who has actually walked-the-talk regularly vs. just talking-the-talk now at election time?

  2. Bob

    Watch Bob closely.

  3. T. Brown

    Do these men really support President Trump’s agenda? How have they proven it in the past or is it just words to get elected? I live in the District and no one is talking about this race which isn’t necessarily a good thing.

    News that can only gladden the heart of establishment candidate, John Rose.
