It’s Super Tuesday! Will you speak up for kids?
Super Tuesday—sometimes known as the “SEC Primary” because of the many southern states voting today—is one of the most important dates of the election cycle. Voters in more than a dozen states and territories will select their presidential nominees today, with a grand total of 661 Republican delegates and 865 Democratic delegates up for grabs.
The Democrats in Colorado will hold their caucuses, while the Republicans in Alaska and Wyoming will hold theirs. In Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont and Virginia, both Democrats and Republicans will have their say. Today is also the American Samoa caucus and the primary for Democrats living abroad.
The votes cast on Super Tuesday could give each party a clear idea of who will win the nomination. In fact, since 1988, every candidate who has won the most states on Super Tuesday has gone on to become his party’s nominee. One of the candidates delivering a victory speech tonight will likely be our next president, and it will be his or her responsibility to build a better future for our children.
