What is Super Tuesday?

It is the the day where nearly half the states in the union hold political primaries, conventions and caucuses to determine their candidates for president.

The first Super Tuesday was held in 1988, after the Democratic National Committee worked with several Southern states that wanted to show the importance of them producing a nomination for the party.

Super Tuesday was set up to be a boot camp of sorts for campaigns to determine whether they would be able to work at national level and tackle politics that affect everyone in the US.
