The presidential candidates are setting their sights on the next big primary day, March 14, when six Southern states have contests to award 566 Democratic and 341 Republican delegates.

  • Texas, home of GOP Gov. George W. Bush, will allocate 194 Democratic and 124 Republican delegates.
  • Up for grabs in Florida -- governed by Bush's brother, Jeb -- are 161 Democratic and 80 Republican delegates.
  • In Vice President Al Gore's home state of Tennessee, 68 Democratic and 37 Republican delegates will be awarded.
  • In Louisiana's primaries 61 Democratic and 29 Republican delegates are at stake. In Mississippi's primaries, 37 Democratic and 33 Republican delegates will be allocated. The count is 45 Democratic and 38 Republican delegates in Oklahoma.

The candidates have a few smaller hurdles to clear before Tuesday.

  • Democrats in South Carolina will have a primary on Thursday. Both parties have contests in Colorado and Utah on Friday. Wyoming Republicans also have a caucus that day.
  • Over the weekend Arizona, Michigan, Minnesota and Nevada Democrats will also have presidential contests, as will the Democrats abroad.
