NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Congressman Marsha Blackburn and Tennessee Senator Bob Corker are both scheduled to meet with President-elect Donald Trump Tuesday in New York.

Corker is considered one of the top contenders for Secretary of State.

Other names being discussed for the position include former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani and former CIA Director David Petraeus.

In July, after joining the President-elect for a rally in North Carolina, Corker decided to take himself out of consideration as Trump’s running mate.

In a statement Blackburn said she is looking forward to meeting with Trump.

“It was an honor to be a surrogate for Mr. Trump during his hard-fought campaign and to subsequently be asked to serve on the Executive Committee for his Transition Team.  Over the years, I have had the opportunity to visit Trump Tower numerous times and I look forward to meeting with President-elect Trump in New York City Tuesday to discuss a broad range of policy issues, the transition, and to continue helping him choose the best people for his administration,” she said.
