Bob Corker of TN will probably be best remembered for breaking w/ Trump and then sort of retiring because of the political atmosphere. He came to notice for beating Harold Ford Jr, who was kind of like the 1st Obama in that he was a charismatic, intelligent black guy that seemed like he should be president. Unfortunately, Ford was battling for a US Senate seat in an increasingly conservative state. Corker basically ended Ford's ascent. Ford, like Obama, gave a keynote address at a Dem Convention. 

His actions:

Corker, Bob 2006 Narrowly defeats Dem rising star Harold Ford Jr for US Sen seat
Corker, Bob 2008 1 of only 16 US Sens to oppose tax rebate stimulus plan
Corker, Bob 2010 1 of only 3 GOP Sens to support the New START treaty w/ Russia
Corker, Bob 2011 co-sponsor of Energy Tax Prevention Act
Corker, Bob 2017 Only GOP Sen to vote against the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act
Corker, Bob 2018 A decisive vote in confirming Kavanaugh to the SC, as he was considering voting against the nom
Corker, Bob 2018 Announces retirement as he becomes one of Trump's most vocal inter-party critics
