NEW YORK — (Scroll down for live video) — Republicans and Democrats will flock to the polls and meeting rooms on Tuesday across 12 states, where primaries and caucuses will make or break the seven candidates’ campaigns to become their party’s nominee in the 2016 presidential election.
-Trump wins Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, Virginia, Arkansas, Vermont & Massachusetts
-Cruz wins Texas (Home state), Oklahoma
-Clinton wins Georgia, Virginia, Alabama, Texas & Tennessee

More delegates to United States presidential nominating conventions can be won on Super Tuesday than on any other single day of the primary calendar. Candidates seeking the presidency traditionally must do well on this day to secure their party’s nomination.
The participating states include Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado (with caucuses), Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota (with caucuses), Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, and Virginia. Additionally, Republican caucuses are being held in Alaska and Wyoming. One participating territory is American Samoa.
