WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bob Corker, R-Tenn., released the following statement in advance of President Obama’s visit to the Amazon.com distribution center in Chattanooga Tuesday:

“I hated for the president to come to my hometown and not accompany him, especially because it would have provided an opportunity for us to talk more about our country’s fiscal challenges. But ultimately, with only three days left in this work period and several scheduled hearings and votes today, it seemed best to stay in Washington and do the work Tennesseans elected me to do. I have no doubt the president will have a good visit to one of the greatest cities in the world,” said Corker.

Corker served as mayor of Chattanooga from 2001 to 2005.

I hate that you could not find time to join the President to your home town, too. I also hate that you are so busy in D.C. and have to rush to complete your work before you start your MONTH LONG VACATION!
