March 4, 2016
Hang on for a minute…we’re trying to find some more stories you might like.
Super Tuesday occurred on March 1, 2016 with many twist and turns. Many delegates were up for grabs for any candidates running to become president. The usual winners (Hillary and Trump) won the most states in their respective parties.
The Republican party had Alabama (50 delegates), Alaska (28 delegates), Arkansas (40 delegates), Georgia ( 76 delegates), Massachusetts (42 delegates), Minnesota (38 delegates), Oklahoma (43 delegates), Tennessee ( 58 delegates), Texas (155 delegates), Vermont (16 delegates), and Virginia (49 delegates). Trump won most of the states, including my home state Georgia (Like seriously, step your game up Georgia voters) with Rubio and Cruz picking up some victories. Oh yeah, some guy named Kasich won second place a few times (though no one really cared). Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Vermont, and Virginia or the sinister six (I’m not including Georgia, I’ll give us one more chance) all gave Trump first place. Why they did this should probably be investigated and discussed for a further review. Real republican candidates like Cruz won Alaska, Oklahoma, and Texas with Rubio winning Minnesota.
Not to be left out, Democrats also took part in Super Tuesday, voting in Alabama (53 delegates), Arkansas (32 delegates), Colorado (66 delegates), Georgia (102 delegates), Massachusetts (91 delegates) Minnesota (77 delegates), Oklahoma (38 delegates), Tennessee (67 delegates), Texas (222 delegates), Vermont (16 delegates), Virginia (95 delegates). Clinton won Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia (they redeemed themselves with this), Massachusetts, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia (Bernie won the rest, it’s too long to list states again).
These results will make each candidate running realize where they stand in their race for president. The question is who will stand on top and become our next president.
