WASHINGTON (Times Free Press) - U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann and his wife, Brenda, contributed a combined $605 to President Barack Obama's inaugural committee.

Political observers may find the donations unusual because the Ooltewah Republican supported Mitt Romney and generally lines up against Obama whenever possible. But records show Fleischmann was the only Tennessean in Congress to give at least $200 to the president's second-term kickoff.

Even the Volunteer State's two congressional Democrats aren't listed in the report naming inaugural donors, who gave more than $43 million. Fleischmann contributed $300 and his wife donated $305.

It's possible that other Volunteer State lawmakers pitched in. People who gave $200 or less did not have contributions documented and itemized in Federal Election Commission records.
