NASHVILLE — In what is billed as “a different kind of welcome” for President Barack Obama’s
visit to Chattanooga, the Tennessee Republican Party is airing a
television ad declaring that Tennessee is a success “not because of your

A White House statement
says the president will tour the Amazon Fulfillment Center in
Chattanooga today and “discuss proposals he has laid out to jump-start

The trip comes
after Amazon announced it is adding jobs at the Chattanooga facility
and converting some part-time jobs to full-time positions.
