Senator Bob Corker (R-TN)
Ranking Member, Senate Foreign Relations Committee
Elected to the Senate in 2006, Senator Corker is the senior Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, where he has served since he entered the Senate in 2007. A fiscal conservative, Senator Corker recognizes that America’s diplomacy and development programs – only 1% of the federal budget — are strategic and cost-effective investments that are vital to America’s national interests. These programs help tackle the root causes of conflict and extremism, build new markets for U.S. goods and services, respond to humanitarian crises, and build a better future for the world’s most impoverished.
