Start Your Pitches: Super Tuesday's Here

Ad Feedback

Super Duper Tuesday is finally here and millions of voters in more than 20 states are going to the polls.

CBNNews.com will have live coverage of Super Tuesday returns throughout the evening. Also, watch a special edition of The 700 Club, tonight on the ABC Family Channel at 11 p.m. EST.

Republican frontrunner John McCain came to New York City Monday and in front of gawking New Yorkers and a media mob, claimed that he's the Republicans' best chance to win in November.

"If you look at the numbers, I can match up against either Senator Obama or Senator Clinton very well and compete with them in every state in the United States of America," McCain said.

McCain is leading in many of Tuesday's key states including big ones like New York and New Jersey, but polls show challenger Mitt Romney may have closed the gap in some southern states and another big prize: California.

Romney is trying to stop McCain's march to the nomination - and he has help. A loose 'Stop McCain' coalition has formed the last few days and is led by popular talk show hosts Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity who believe Romney's the real conservative in the race.

"Across the country conservatives have come together and they have said you know what we don't want, Senator McCain," Romney said.

But Romney has company. Iowa winner Mike Huckabee is campaigning hard in southern states and could do well - so well in fact that he may win some states and take votes away from Romney in the process.

As for the Democrats, Barack Obama went around Monday with Ted Kennedy at his side and a surprise appearance from actor Robert DeNiro. Obama is making the case that his judgment and new way of politics will make the difference over Hillary Clinton.

"I explained that I was not running because it was somehow owed to me or that it was my turn. I decided to run because of what Dr. King called the fierce urgency of now," Obama said.

Obama is expected to do well in places like Illinois and some of the caucus states like Colorado. Even the big prize of California is in play and polls show he's closing in other states too.

Clinton has advantages in big states like New York and New Jersey and doing well in California is critical to her success.

Her fans came out in force Monday evening, spending a few hours in the cold to see her arrive for a taping of the David Letterman show.

Then she held a national town hall event, broadcast on the Hallmark Channel, taking questions and making her closing arguments to Democrats across the country.

Clinton will watch the returns come in tonight from here in New York.

Both the Clinton and Obama campaigns acknowledge that this is a race for delegates now, not states. And it's very possible that the results on the Democratic side will be so mixed tonight that there will still be no clear frontrunner.
