Georgia voters hope to influence presidential picks
Voters in Georgia will get their say in the presidential race today, with one of the largest delegate totals up for grabs among 12 states.
Georgia's deep-red status and pool of delegates is drawing last-minute visits from multiple Republican candidates ahead of "Super Tuesday." Democrats, meanwhile, know black voters are essential to winning a primary.
Recent polling in the state shows Donald Trump leading the Republican race and Hillary Clinton with a double-digit lead on Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
Secretary of State Brian Kemp, who championed the effort to set the March 1 primary date, said the change gives Georgians a chance to impact both parties' presidential nominee. Republican voters include a variety of people, from evangelicals, to tea party members, to those focused solely on economic issues, he said.
"It's got something for everybody," Kemp said.
