Tennessee’s Deal-Making Senator

At a lunchtime address Friday to a group of businesspeople at the Dixon Gallery & Gardens, U.S. Sen. Bob Corker recalled his background as a businessman (he used to own a construction company and develop commercial real estate) and his stint as Tennessee’s commissioner of finance.

Finance – whether on Wall Street or Main Street – excites him. It’s in his blood.

Which is why he told the group, “I still get perspiration on my upper lip when I hear about a great deal.”
