Heavy flooding has devastated the state, but Gov. Phil Bredesen couldnt stop gushing about the presidents help on Thursday.
FEMA and the White House have been absolutely supportive, he told reporters on a conference call.
FEMA was quickly on the ground, and on Monday, the president was on the phone with me before the sun came up, he said.
Bredesen, a Democrat, said hes been in regular contact with White House staff. In fact, he had just ended a long conversation with Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
Bredesen, who has weathered his share of tornados and storms as a public official, said that hes never seen this kind of response.
WHAT specifically has the administration done to rave about? Make phone calls?
