Why The State Is Significant:

• Georgia has the second most delegates at stake on Super Tuesday. Enough said. And since the state conducts an "open" primary, voters may vote on a ballot of any party.

• But Georgia’s complicated system for awarding delegates heavily favors frontrunners and makes it tough for secondary candidates to pick up traction. On the Republican side, for example, candidates must capture at least 20 percent of the vote to begin to collect statewide delegates.

Fast Facts:

• There's 15 Democratic superdelegates, including former President Jimmy Carter, the state's four Democratic congressmen and 10 Democratic National Committee members, including Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed.

• Hillary Clinton may be the Democratic favorite this time around, but when she ran against Barack Obama in the 2008 Democratic primary, the tables were turned: Obama beat her by more than a two-one-margin of victory, with 66.39 percent of the vote, while Clinton captured 31.11 percent of the vote.
