“Super Tuesday” is tomorrow, March 1: the day when Minnesota ( 38 delegates), along with Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Colorado, Alaska and Wyoming will hold either presidential election primaries or caucuses with the five remaining GOP candidates fighting for 600 delegates to add to their “delegate coffers” in the hopes of reaching 1,237 – the number needed to secure the GOP nomination. Current delegate totals for each candidate are: Trump – 82, Cruz – 17, Rubio – 16, Kasich – 6, and Carson – 4.
Calling Minnesota the “true wild card” of Super Tuesday, Politico is reporting that due to Trump’s late organization in Minnesota, Rubio and Cruz are in a “statistical tie” with the current GOP front runner, with Breitbart reporting Rubio (23%) as having a small lead over both Cruz (21%) and Trump (18%).
Hoping to fire up supporters or firm up those still undecided on which candidate they will support, both Rubio and Cruz supporters will be holding rallies in Minnesota before Tuesday’s caucuses.
