A spokesman for Republican Sen. Bob Corker says he has withdrawn his name as a possible running mate for Donald Trump.

Micah Johnson confirmed the comments that the Tennessee senator made in an interview with The Washington Post published Wednesday in which the senator said, “There are people far more suited for being a candidate for vice president, and I think I’m far more suited for other types of things.”

Corker is the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He appeared with Trump at a campaign event in North Carolina on Tuesday.
