How's a governor to keep all carmaking constituents happy?
Now that Volkswagen has announced plans to build an assembly plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen now must choose among vehicles from three manufacturers with factories in or planned for his state: General Motors, Nissan and VW.
He's not the only politico who has to juggle rides if he doesn't want to woo some voters and snub others. Here are the other so I took out Tenn. below states with multiple vehicle manufacturers. In alphabetical order
n Indiana: General Motors, Honda, Subaru and Toyota
n Ohio: Chrysler, Ford, GM and Honda
n Michigan: Chrysler, Ford, GM and Mazda
n Alabama: Daimler, Honda and Hyundai
n Illinois: Chrysler, Ford and Mitsubishi
n Kentucky: Ford, GM and Toyota
n Missouri: Chrysler, Ford and GM
Tennessee: GM, Nissan and (from 2010) VW
