Why The State Is Significant:

• Vermont is Sanders country, so he's expected to top Hillary Clinton -- but Clinton volunteers have been in overdrive there. And keep in mind the ever-important superdelegate: Vermont Rep. Peter Welch, for example, has thrown his support behind Sanders, saying he will vote for him on Super Tuesday and cast his superdelegate vote in favor of him at the DNC in July.

• The Green Mountain State's electorates tend to lean left, even the Republicans. So it will be interesting to see how Ohio governor John Kasich fares. The Burlington Free Press even asked in a recent piece, "Is Vermont John Kasich's Super Tuesday firewall?" Kasich did score a second-place win, after all, in the primary in neighboring New Hampshire -- albeit a distant second place behind Donald Trump. Plus, Kasich received a warm welcome from Vermont residents during a joint appearance with Lt. Gov. Phil Scott, a moderate Republican running for governor whose popularity crosses party lines.

Fast Facts:

• Vermont is an overwhelmingly Democratic state, so it comes as no surprise Barack Obama carried the state in in a landslide in the 2012 general election, snagging 66.57 percent of the vote to Romney's 30.97 percent, a Democratic victory margin of 35.6 percent.

• Although Vermont is Sanders' home state, his appearance there on Super Tuesday oddly will be his first major political campaign even in the state since his kickoff rally May 26 on the Burlington waterfront, attended by upwards of 5,000 people. Meanwhile, Clinton campaign volunteers have been aggressively courting voters there.
