At the same time, the six other GOP candidates seeking the nomination had a combined $15,172 on hand.
Tea party challenger Zach Poskevich led third-party opponents with $9,375 in funds.
The Tennessee Democratic Party has not fielded a party hopeful. The deadline for candidate qualifying is April 5.
Corker, a former Chattanooga mayor, defeated then-U.S. Rep. Harold Ford Jr., a Democrat, in the 2006 general election to gain the office.
