The Super Tuesday primary, which Georgia is a part of, won’t happen until early March.
Will there be any GOP contestants left to make going to the polls worthwhile that day?
Thankfully, South Carolina’s primary Saturday has given a sneak preview of what we can expect here, as far as campaign strategy and advertisements. So far, it’s been rather unseemly.
We started the week with six GOP hopefuls for the Palmetto State’s delegates. Now, we’re down to four. Ten days from South Carolina’s primary, Florida holds its primary. In between now and the Georgia primary — Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Virginia are among the other states holding a primary or a caucus on Super Tuesday — voters in Colorado, Missouri, Arizona and Michigan will cast their support for a candidate.
The only debate in Georgia scheduled so far is a March 1 event on CNN at 8 p.m. No venue has been selected.
The Republican candidates on the ballot for the March 6 presidential preference primary in Georgia are: Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Gary Johnson, Ron Paul, Rick Perry, Buddy Roemer, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum. Bachmann, Huntsman and Perry have all dropped out, Perry reportedly having done so Thursday morning, just 48 hours before the South Carolina primary. Johnson has abandoned his bid for the GOP nomination and is running as a Libertarian. Georgia is one of the few primary ballots bearing Roemer’s name.
Super Tuesday may turn out to be a dud.
