Super Tuesday: Largest Primary Election Day of 2024 Cycle

Follow live-blog for real-time updates and key results from Super Tuesday primaries with over a third of GOP delegates at stake.

Today marks a crucial day in the race for the GOP presidential nomination as votes are tallied in 16 states and one territory. Over a third of delegates will be assigned, shaping the path to victory for candidates.

The states holding primary elections include Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia. Additionally, Democrats in American Samoa will be caucusing while Iowa will release the results of their presidential preference caucus.

Former President Donald Trump leads the Republican field with 244 delegates, while former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley trails with 43. Candidates need 1,215 delegates to secure the party nomination. Trump's dominance in previous contests has put pressure on Haley, and a strong showing on Super Tuesday could reshape the race.

Haley's campaign has ramped up efforts with a significant national ad buy and extensive campaigning across the country. On the Democratic side, President Biden faces minimal opposition, unlike the organized protest in Michigan over his handling of the Israel-Hamas conflict.

As voters head to the polls, they will also decide key races for Senate, House, and governor positions. Notable races include the California Senate seat, the North Carolina gubernatorial contest, and the Texas Senate race to challenge Sen. Ted Cruz. Additionally, Alabama will vote under a new congressional map that may lead to a Democratic member in the U.S. House.
