  • Recounts unlikely in tight races

    MOBILE COUNTY, Ala. (WKRG) -- Two closely contested races in Mobile County are unlikely to result in recounts, despite the razor-thin margin separating the candidates.

    In Tuesday’s Republican Runoff election, Satsuma Police Chief Shane Stringer beat Call News Editor Willie Gray by 25 votes in House District 102, which covers mostly western and northern Mobile County. Brandy Hambright defeated Harry Satterwhite by 125 votes for a place on the Mobile County Circuit Court bench.

    Even though both races were decided by less than one half of one percent, there will be no automatic recount. State Code says, “When, in a general election, the election returns... reflect that a candidate is defeated… by not more than one half of one percent of the votes cast... a recount shall be held….”


  • Family of former Davidson football player seek charges against head coach

    MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) -- The family of a former Davidson High School football player says they will eventually file charges against head coach Fred Riley and an assistant coach.  The family of Rodney Kim, Jr. was at a Mobile Police Precinct on Wednesday, they said, to begin the process.

    Kim's parents say they've been fighting for Riley to be held accountable for a viral video, showing Rodney being beaten by members of his own team in a school locker room last spring.


  • Amid harsh criticism, Trump tries a tougher tone on Russia

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump spent a second day managing the political fallout from his widely criticized meeting with Russia’s Vladimir Putin, shifting stances and mopping up what the White House said were misstatements.

    His toughness with the longtime American foe in question, Trump said Wednesday he told the Russian president face-to-face during Monday’s summit to stay out of America’s elections “and that’s the way it’s going to be.”
