Debate crucial for Clinton as poll numbers slump
Beset by slumping poll numbers, Hillary Clinton had a last chance in a one-on-one debate Tuesday to slow Barack Obama's roaring momentum before two White House nominating clashes next week. The besieged former front-runner, her hopes on the edge ahead of must-win contests in Ohio and Texas on March 4, hopes to halt an Obama surge that has seen her Democratic rival snap up 11 straight electoral victories. Obama, carving out wide leads in national Democratic polls, landed Tuesday's first morale-sapping blow, capturing the endorsement of former party White House hopeful and liberal champion Senator Chris Dodd.

McCain disavows radio host's anti-Obama rant
Republican White House contender John McCain Tuesday condemned remarks at a campaign rally by a right-wing radio host disparaging McCain's potential Democratic rival Barack Obama. Warming up the crowd of McCain supporters in Cincinnati, Ohio, Bill Cunningham repeatedly used Obama's middle name, Hussein, and described the Illinois senator as a "hack" politician who could fall prey to corruption allegations.
McCain said he was not present in the hall for the remarks of Cunningham, who also attacked Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton, and said he had never met the talk-show host.

Power back on after outages hit Fla.
A problem with Florida's electrical grid caused a nuclear plant to automatically shut down Tuesday and intermittently cut power to up to 3 million people from Daytona Beach through the Florida Keys. Authorities said there were no safety concerns at the nuclear plant. While many areas were hit hard, the outages were short lived and only about 20,000 people lacked electricity during the evening commute home. Most of the evening outages were due to bad weather, not the grid problem, officials said.
Traffic was even more miserable than usual in the Miami area as many stop lights briefly were without power.

Ministers: Police destroyed Klan records
Three ministers accused a Greensboro police officer Tuesday of ordering officers to destroy about 50 boxes of police files related to the fatal shooting of five people at an anti-Ku Klux Klan rally in 1979.
The Revs. Cardes Brown, Gregory Headen and Nelson Johnson said an active-duty officer told them he and at least three other officers were told to destroy the records in 2004 or 2005, shortly after a seven-member panel convened to research the shootings requested police files related to them.

Polygamist leader faces Ariz. charges
Polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs was handed over to Arizona authorities Tuesday to face sex charges stemming from the arranged marriages of two teenage girls to older relatives. He already has been convicted in Utah in connection with one of those cases, involving a 14-year-old girl. Deputies from the Mohave County Sheriff's Office took custody of Jeffs from Utah officials, sheriff's spokeswoman Trish Carter said.
