Corker's fears mitigated on plant decision

After meeting with Troy Clarke -- head of GM's North American operations -- Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker says he's more confident that the auto maker's decisions on plant closings will not be driven by politics.

"I think we understand what is going into the decision."

Corker's state has an idled plant that's in the running for the chance to produce a new small car model.
