Super Tuesday - A Tuesday in a presidential election year when many primary elections are held. The name Super Tuesday entered the political lexicon during the 1988 election campaign, when a group of Southern states decided to hold their primary elections on the same day, March 9th, early in the campaign. By voting early and as a bloc, these Southern states hoped to have a substantial influence upon the nominating process. In Election 2000, the term has been used generally of March 7th, the date on which at least ten states held primary elections. These contests were held in states from various regions of the country, including highly populated New York and California. Because of this "front-loading," the drama of the primary process has been effectively condensed into a few weeks, and the regional influence sought by the Southern states has been diminished. There were, in fact, more Southern states holding primaries on the following Tuesday, March 14. By mid-March, it was already apparent who the Democratic and Republican presidential candidates would be.

WASHINGTON: Feeling heat from their constituents and tired of waiting for the Justice Department to propose legislation, senate Republicans and northern Democrats each begin drafting their own (rival) voting bills. Bowing to political reality, the administration shelves the Constitutional amendment approach. They now focus on drafting their own voting rights bill. To achieve a unified, bipartisan bill, Attorney General Katzenbach urgently negotiates with Senate Minority Leader Everett Dirksen (R-IL) whose support is essential for overcoming the inevitable southern filibuster. Then he meets with Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield (D-MT). Democrats have a 2-1 majority in the Senate, but the southern wing of the party — the "Dixiecrats" — are bitterly opposed to any legislation that will increase the number of Black voters. (The House does not allow filibustering, and there are enough northern Democrats and sympathetic Republicans to assure passage, so the Senate is where the decisive legislative battle will be fought.)

In order to win legislation at the national level, SCLC has to influence and maintain ties with the Johnson administration and the northern-liberal wing of the Democratic Party. But LBJ and those same liberals betrayed the MFDP at the 1964 in Atlantic City and SNCC wants nothing more to do with them. Instead, they have turned toward building independent Black-led political organizations outside the Democratic Party which puts them in direct conflict with some national party leaders who still hope to retain southern Electoral College votes that are essential to keeping a Democrat in the White House.
