    Rhode Island's representatives in the U.S. House say they're asking voters for another term so they can continue to fight for the state.

    Both Democratic Reps. James Langevin and David Cicilline said they feel they have unfinished business in Washington, whether that's making health care and prescription drugs more affordable, rebuilding the nation's infrastructure or trying to reduce gun violence.

    On Tuesday, Langevin faces Republican Salvatore Caiozzo (ky-OH'-zoh), a retired businessman from West Greenwich, and Cicilline faces Republican Patrick Donovan, a stay-at-home father of four grown children who lives in Newport.

    Langevin, of Warwick, is seeking a 10th term to represent the 2nd Congressional District in western Rhode Island.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
