Politics and the Libertarian Party

Tuscaloosa, AL – There will be only two parties listed on Alabama's election ballot this year -- Republican and Democratic. Alabama's Libertarian Party was listed on the state ballot in 2002 but was unable to get enough votes to stay on the ballot for this year's elections.

Hines says being kept off the ballot prevents voters from choosing a political alternative.

Tropical Storm Bonnie Threatens Gulf

Miami, FL – Forecasters in the Gulf of Mexico are focusing on Tropical Storm Bonnie. They say Bonnie is a small system that's currently centered about 390 miles south of the mouth of the Mississippi River. It's moving west-northwest at about eight miles an hour, and it's expected to turn north this week. Bonnie's also expected to gain strength.
