NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Republican Gov. Bill Haslam is visiting businesses in three rural counties west of Nashville this week.
The governor is headed to Benton, Humphreys and Houston counties in the Kentucky Lake region on Tuesday. He plans to visit Jones Plastic and Engineering in Camden, DuPont Titanium Technologies in New Johnsonville and Glastonbury Southern Gage in Erin.
The governor also has two public events in Nashville this week, starting with a visit to Percy Priest Elementary School on Monday.
On Thursday, the governor plans to attend a foreign policy discussion featuring U.S. Sen. Bob Corker. That event is hosted by the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition, which last week named former Gov. Phil Bredesen and former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist as co-chairmen of its Tennessee State Advisory committee.
