latest — arrival in Asheville

Subject: Pool report 2 -- arrival Asheville

AF One touched down at 11:15 a.m. 
No greeters, no viewing pen. 

Jay Carney and Jason Furman gaggled in flight, talking mostly about the president's manufacturing proposals (which is his focus today). Furman said this Canadian company's decision to open up here is "emblematic" of a trend of locating factories in the U.S. President will talk today about the manufacturing institutes idea he rolled out last night; Carney challenged the idea that Congress won't fund such a thing.

Further highlights to come.
