NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Mike Bloomberg, Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg and Jane Sanders will have all visited Tennessee by the time Super Tuesday rolls around.

Each is a last minute push presidential campaigns are making in the Volunteer State as campaigns pivot from the early primary states to Super Tuesday.

On Sunday, March 1, Jill Biden will travel to Tennessee for a Get Out the Vote meet and greet in Memphis.

Bloomberg and Klobuchar held rallies on Friday. Buttigieg plans to hold a rally on Saturday and Vice President Biden's wife, Jill Biden, will attend events in Memphis and Nashville Sunday.

Nearly a quarter of the Democratic primary delegates will be determined based on the March 3 results. California and Texas are key wins, with the most delegates up for grabs.

But Tennessee's 73 delegates could prove vital for candidates looking to shore up momentum after the primary. Just seven other states will have more delegates than Tennessee on Super Tuesday.
