After tomorrow, the total # of candidates still standing will get A LOT smaller. Hils and Berns go head-to-head in 12 contests on Tuesday. The GOP is also revving up for a grand total of 11 states. So let's get fired up and learn a little bit about the big day.
But what is Super Tuesday anyway?
A huge amount of voting for the parties. A huge amount of anticipation. It's going to be super.
What are the contests?
Well, they are a combo of primaries and caucuses. They are different, an each state has a little bit different of a process. ~Make sure you know what your state is up to~
Who will participate?
A freakin' bunch of states. Here's the grand total: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont and Virginia will hold contests for both Republicans and Democrats.
Republicans in Alaska will hold caucuses.
Democrats in Colorado and in American Samoa are also holding their nominating contests.
Ok, this is a lot to take in. What do I need to know/watch the MOST?
yup, sorry about all that friend. It's a lot for a political noob.
Well, this is a big one for good ol' Sanders. Hills is expected to win the saunter states Alabama, Georgia, Texas, Arkansas, and Virginia. But Vermont, Minnesota, Colorado, and Massachusetts Berns has to get to have a shot at the nom. Good luck to Bernie.
The GOP candidates are scrambling for 595 Republican delegates on Tuesday. With the wins from Trump, he has more money to fight fight, but Rubio and Cruz are also stepping up their game. Analysts are looking at a possible party split. This is a big day for them though, after Tuesday nearly half of the 1,237 needed to win the presidential nomination will make their decision.
