Fleischmann highlights rough beginnings in first reelection ad

Fleischmann’s district leans Republican, but his main obstacle to another term is the GOP primary, where polls show a difficult path ahead for the freshman. Challenging Fleischmann are Republicans Weston Wamp and Scottie Mayfield.

Wamp is the 25-year-old son of former Rep. Zach Wamp (R-Tenn.), who held the Chattanooga-area seat before Fleischmann.
