Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey's conflict with Nike over a cancelled Fourth of July sneaker appeared to have been resolved on Friday, with Ducey welcoming the shoe giant's new manufacturing facility to Goodyear.

"This is good news for Arizona and for @GoodyearAZGov. 500 plus jobs. Over $184 million in capital investment. Arizona is open for business, and we welcome @Nike to our state."
