NASHVILLE, Tenn (AP/WMOT) — An exit poll of voters in Tennessee's presidential primary showed Rick Santorum beat Mitt Romney thanks to strong support among born-again Christians — about three-quarters of those who went to the polls on Tuesday.
Santorum also led Romney 3 to 1 among those who said it mattered a "great deal" that a candidate shared their religious beliefs.
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- A team of researchers from Middle Tennessee State University are attempting to drive cross-country this week on less than 10 gallons of gasoline.
MTSU Professor Cliff Ricketts, six students, and a couple of alumni volunteers were on schedule to pass through Oklahoma City at noon Tuesday on their way to Long Beach California. They’re driving experimental hybrid vehicles that run on a variety of energy sources, including solar, hydrogen gas, ethanol and gasoline.
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- Tennessee joins 9 other states for Super Tuesday presidential primary voting tomorrow. As you’ve heard John and Celeste mention, Santorum and Romney are running neck-and-neck in several states.
The vote appears to be shaping up differently here in Tennessee. Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum held a two-to-one lead over former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney in polls conducted recently by both the Survey Group at Middle Tennessee State University and the Vanderbilt Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions.
