Tuesdays can get a bad rap. Sometimes the best that can be said about them are that they’re the day that’s the furthest from next Monday. But not Super Tuesday! More than a quarter of the House of Representatives faces a primary race on March 5, as well as the starting gun for two high-profile Senate races. And while not all the races are competitive, or even necessary, there are major implications for November’s general election, especially in California, Texas, North Carolina and Alabama. We’ll discuss the major races and stories shaping up for Super Tuesday with Roll Call campaign reporters Mary Ellen McIntire and Daniela Altimari.
