A little more than a week after pulling state incentives from Nike following its decision to pull its Betsy Ross Flag shoes after former NFL star Colin Kaepernick raised issues around them, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) reversed his stance.

Ducey tweeted Thursday welcoming a Nike facility to Goodyear, Ariz., saying the company will bring more than 500 jobs and $184 million to the state.

“This is good news for Arizona and for [Goodyear, AZ] 500 plus jobs. Over $184 million in capital investment. Arizona is open for business, and we welcome Nike to our state,” Ducey tweeted.

The article goes on to state the following:

Ducey was one of many conservatives to publicly blast Nike and announced he would instruct the state to pull financial incentives for Nike after the company decided not to fully release a Betsy Ross flag sneaker.
