Editor's Note: Motorcycle accidents in Tennessee are up dramatically in 2012. The grim numbers are more than statistics for WMOT Reporter Shawn Anfinson.
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (ANFINSON) -- I’ve been riding a motorcycle for the better part of 15 years. With high prices at the pump, it’s a cheap way to get around, and it’s fun. But the large number of motorcyclists killed this year have given me pause.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP/WMOT) — Democratic leaders are asking for a delay in certifying the August primary results after reports that voting machines in Davidson County defaulted to the Republican primary ballot.
A letter was sent to Secretary of State Tre Hargett Wednesday by the entire Democratic state legislative leadership. The letter states "voting apparatus should never default to one party or another" and calls for a full investigation.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP/WMOT) — A large Tennessee delegation will be on hand in Tampa Wednesday night to hear Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice address the GOP convention.
Rice will reportedly tell the delegates that the voice of the United States in world affairs "has been muted" under President Barack Obama, creating a chaotic and dangerous security environment.
Tennessee Republican Party spokesman Adam Nickas is in Florida with the delegation. He says he was impressed by Ann Romney’s speech Tuesday night.
