U.S. Sen. Bob Corker pulled ahead early Tuesday evening, as the Tennessee Senator faced off against more than half a dozen challengers. Corker led Democrat Mark Clayton after polls closed, though not all precincts were reporting. The race is not expected to be close, as Clayton has been disavowed by his own party for what some have called extreme views and ties to hate groups.
