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

Tennessee Congressman Sees Peyton Manning as Potential Future Senate Candidate

As it happens, in my Other Gig, I have written several times about Peyton Manning and his family.

It doesn't look like Peyton Manning is sticking to sports.

Multiple GOP operatives in Tennessee have suggested that former 8th District Rep. Stephen Fincher isn't done with politics and could be interested in running for Corker's seat, too. Lamar Alexander's seat if Alexander chooses to retire in 2020, according to Joe Perticone of Business Insider.

The idea that the former professional athlete might be interested in public service was first floated by Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-TN), and it apparently got enough attention for MSNBC to ask Corker about it.

Manning is a beloved figure in Tennessee, having played college football for the University of Tennessee, and coming back to play his senior year amid predictions that he would have been the top pick in the NFL draft that year.

Top Hizbul militant killed in Uri encounter
Najar, 39, who had been an active part of terror operations since 1999, was killed near Zorawar Post of Lachiproa in Uri. The list was rejected by Hizbul Mujahideen leader Syed Salahuddin, which caused friction between the two commanders.

The statement issued on behalf of the longtime Brentwood Republican only stokes speculation that she might enter the race in the aftermath of Corker announcing Tuesday he would not seek a third term.

Manning shot the idea down in March during an appearance at the Adobe Summit in Las Vegas.

"I don't know where that came from. I have no interest in the political world, but would like to continue serving communities".

"I am running for the United States Senate to work as hard as I can to restore respect, honesty, and, most importantly, integrity in Washington", Mackler told the Tennessean Tuesday.
