Chattanooga (WVLT) - In Chattanooga, the republicans are beginning their preparations for Bob Corker's arrival tonight.
As Bob Corker makes his way here to Chattanooga for tonight's election returns things are slowly taking shape.
Even though officially we aren't allowed into the hotel where everything will be taking place tonight, we did get a short glimpse of everything being set up.
Crews are busy setting up risers and speakers and lights for obviously what the Corker people hope to be a festive occasion here in Downtown Chattanooga.
Mister Corker will be returning to Chattanooga around mid-afternoon with a visit to a local church then he will rest a bit before coming over to the Chattanoogan Hotel where we are now.
In the meantime, we will have pictures of his visit to the church and a unique take on a Chattanooga newspaper's endorsement of the US Senate candidates.
