The southern states are poised to dominate the early 2016 campaign schedule for the Presidential hopefuls. Arkansas just joined Oklahoma, Texas, Virginia, & Tennessee for a March 1st Super Tuesday blitz.
Louisiana will follow on March 5th. Yes, that's a Saturday event, but the former French colony has some rich traditions like that.
The twin states of Alabama & Mississippi will go to the polls on Tuesday, March 8th. They tend to coordinate their presidential primaries. These 2 gulf states were a part of the original Super Tuesday which was designed by several southern Democrat legislatures prior to the 1988 campaign cycle. The idea was to give a big boost to a southern conservative Democrat early enough to boost his fundraising and 'electability' status, because Northeast liberals had been dominating Democrat presidential politics.
