WASHINGTON, July 18, 2019 – United States Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on his vote to confirm Tennessean Cliff Corker as a U.S. District Judge for the Eastern District of Tennessee:
“Cliff Corker currently serves as a United States Magistrate Judge on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee. He was selected to serve as a magistrate judge by the District Court Judges of the Eastern District of Tennessee – a testament to his qualifications to be a district court judge and to his support from the community. Cliff demonstrates the qualities I look for in a judge -- good character, good temperament, high intelligence and respect for the law -- and I’m glad the Senate confirmed his nomination today.”
Alexander introduced Corker as his confirmation hearing on November 28 saying he “will be an asset to the federal bench.”
After President Trump announced Corker’s nomination on October 11, Alexander said he would serve Tennessee with distinction.
