ATLANTA,None —

Georgia's presidential primary could be scheduled for Super Tuesday along with more than a dozen states, sources told Channel 2's Lori Geary on Wednesday.

The March 6 date would add even more weight to the day which could go a long way toward determining the official presidential candidates for both the Republican and Democratic parties.

The decision is being made by state Republicans who are cooperating with the Republican National Committee as to not lose delegates to the convention, Geary learned.

States already discussing a Super Tuesday primary include Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Colorado, Idaho, and the Minnesota Democratic caucuses which may mean more focus on Georgia than the last presidential election.

The Super Tuesday primary in March 2008 saw more than half of the Democratic and about 40 percent of the Republican delegates awarded.

Georgia was one of 24 states to hold a primary on that date.
