Zach Wamp headquarters opens in downtown Knoxville

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Gubernatorial candidate Zach Wamp has a new place to call home in downtown Knoxville.

Saturday was the grand opening of his Knoxville headquarters.

We asked the Chattanooga congressman why he feels it's important to set up shop here.

"It's a center of gravity. It's a magnet. It draws people in, but it also makes a big statement that I'm not going to cede a square inch of Tennessee to anybody, anytime. I'm frankly honored to be competitive in every media market of the state," Wamp said.

Wamp faces Bill Haslam, Ron Ramsey and Joe Kirkpatrick in the Republican primary in August.
