Sen. Bob Corker said this morning that he would vote to remove the Confederate flag that flies over the grounds of the state capitol in South Carolina.

He made the remarks 5 minutes and 40 seconds into the video of his appearance on MSNBC's Morning Joe.

Corker was born in the Palmetto state.

Sen. Lamar Alexander's office also released the following statement:

"It is up to the people of South Carolina, but I hope they remove a flag that many see as a symbol of racial intolerance."
