U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann, R-Tenn., today was sworn into office today for his fourth 2-year term in the United States Congress.

With his wife Brenda and his youngest son Jeffrey at his side, Fleischmann took the oath of office from U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, shortly after Ryan was re-elected as Speaker of the House.

In a statement, the 54-year-old Chattanooga attorney, who lives in Ooltewah, called his congressional service "an incredible honor and privilege" and vowed to work for GOP conservative goals.

"This new Congress gives us the opportunity for responsible, conservative solutions for hard-working Americans," he said. 

Fleischmann was first elected to Congress in 2010 as the successor to Zach Wamp in Tennessee's third congressional district.
