Tennessee Republicans to steer clear of Obama visit

Haslam’s public schedule, released two days after the White House announced the Chattanooga trip last week, shows him making five appearances in other parts of Tennessee on Tuesday. “The governor won’t be there,” spokesman Dave Smith said in an email, adding that Haslam learned of the president’s trip on Wednesday. “He had a full day planned in the Upper Cumberland region (Tuesday), and he plans on keeping those appointments.” Haslam does not have any other public events scheduled in the state for the rest of the week. An Alexander news release said the senator is scheduled to co-host “a roundtable focused on expanding school choice for parents” Tuesday in Washington. That event also will feature U.S. Sen.
