Super Tuesday voting under way in Tenn.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Polls have opened in Tennessee for voters to cast their ballots for Republican presidential candidates, along with nine other Super Tuesday states.

Voters began trickling in on Tuesday morning, but early voting numbers in Tennessee were down sharply from the last presidential primary in 2008.

Major GOP candidates have ramped up their attention to Tennessee in the last week with a number of campaign stops and a barrage of television ads.

Tennessee has 55 delegates up for grabs - the third-most among the 10 Super Tuesday states.
