WASHINGTON (AP) — The field for Donald Trump's running mate narrowed Wednesday as two possible candidates effectively withdrew their names from contention.
A spokesman for Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker confirmed comments that Corker made in an interview with The Washington Post 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."

Sen. Joni Ernst is also out, telling POLITICO that she's focused on Iowa and the Senate.
Ernst also appeared to throw her support behind Indiana Governor Mike Pence, telling the magazine that Pence would make the most sense as Trump's VP given his executive and legislative experience.
Governor Pence and the First Lady met with Donald Trump last weekend.
Pence called the meeting a "privilege" and said he's focused on the governor's race.
Another name still in consideration for Donald Trump's VP is Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
Gingrich joined Trump during a campaign appearance in Cincinnati Wednesday night.
