U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann, R-Tenn. and Democratic challenger Mary Headrick have agreed to a televised debate.

The day after a narrow primary loss in Tennessee's 3rd Congressional District, Republican candidate Weston Wamp says he will bow out of politics — at least for now.

An apparent communications breakdown at the Hamilton County Election Commission on Thursday caused much consternation for candidates and party leaders. The commission released only a portion of the second-quarter campaign financial disclosure reports to the public after Thursday's deadline.

Second-quarter campaign disclosure reports would have shown voters who has been raising and spending the most money ahead of the Aug. 7 county election -- but only 15 county candidates filed by the Thursday deadline.
