The SFGN Guide to Super Tuesday 

Vote Via Facebook

Super Tuesday. It’s here. There is no national primary for the democratic nomination for president, but with 35 percent of the delegates up for grabs this is as close as it gets.  

Fourteen states one territory go to the polls tomorrow.

The race for the democratic nomination just got a lot smaller over the past three days since South Carolina voted for former Vice President Joe Biden. Businessman Tom Steyer, former Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Senator Amy Klobuchar all dropped out. Buttigieg and Klobuchar are endorsing Biden. 

The two front-runners are now Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and Biden. Billionaire businessman Michael Bloomberg, who is also the former mayor of New York City, is a wild card since this is the first time anyone will be casting a ballot for him. 

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is also still in the race and her campaign has pledged to take the fight all the way to the Democratic National Convention despite disappointing finishes in each of the first four states to vote. The best she’s done was in Iowa where she came in third place. 

Meanwhile on the Republican side President Donald Trump faces no real competition in the Republican primary.
