Rep. Doug Collins says he won't accept intel job

Rep. Doug Collins quickly shot down speculation that he would be nominated as the next director of national intelligence after President Donald Trump floated the Georgia Republican for the role of America’s spy chief, insisting Friday that he would instead continue his campaign for Senate.

“Wow, you know, it is humbling. I mean, it’s amazing for a trooper’s kid from north Georgia to have the president think that much of you — to mention my name among others to be [in] this position,” Collins told Fox Business’ “Mornings with Maria,” hours after Trump revealed Thursday night to reporters on Air Force One that he was considering the congressman for the post.
