Tuesday, March 6 is “Super Tuesday” and ten states across the country will be holding primaries or caucuses to help decide the Republican nominee for president in the general election this fall.
Massachusetts, along with Alaska, Georgia, Idaho, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia head to the polls.
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Texas Congressman Ron Paul are all still vying for the Republican nomination.
President Barack Obama is not facing a challenger for the Democratic Party’s nomination, so all eyes will be on the Republicans, as it has been for most of this campaign season.
Super Tuesday is a key date in the race for the nomination, but plenty of states will vote after March 6, including delegate-rich states like New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois and California.
Both parties hold their nominating conventions this summer. The general election is in November 6, 2012.
