Tennessee held Republican primaries for governor yesterday, along with a number of House primaries. The race for governor got national attention last month when Tennessee's Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey made controversial remarks about Islam in a video later published on YouTube.
"Now, you could even argue whether being a Muslim is actually a religion, or is it a nationality, way of life, a cult, whatever you want to call it," he continued. "But certainly we do protect our religions, but at the same time, this is something we are going to have to face."

The Cumberland River in Tennessee began to recede on Tuesday, after heavy rainfall over the weekend caused massive flooding in parts of Nashville. At least 29 people have died, and historic landmarks, like the Gaylord Opryland Hotel and LP Field, home of the Tennessee Titans, remain under water. The city is now urging residents to conserve water as one of two of the city's water treatment plants is flooded and currently shut down.
