Republican hopefuls trade jabs as Super Tuesday voting takes off

WASHINGTON (AP) - Voting is in progress across the country, but that doesn't mean the Republican presidential contenders are laying off each other.

John McCain is accusing Mitt Romney of having a "terrible record as governor" of Massachusetts.

Romney told supporters at West Virginia's Republican nominating convention that McCain's support for global warming "would effectively kill coal," the state's backbone. He says doing well in California will prove that conservatives are not at all comfortable with McCain leading the GOP party.

One Republican voter in Massachusetts reluctantly chose Romney, saying she thinks he's the "least unlikable."

A registered Democrat in Illinois decided his vote would be more valuable on the Republican side. He says if the Democrats lost in the general election, he'd be more comfortable with McCain as president.

Mike Huckabee is continuing to campaign in the South.
