Three states to hold state executive elections on Super Tuesday


Super Tuesday is on March 3, and 10 states are holding statewide primaries. Of those 10 states, three—Alabama, North Carolina, and Texas—are conducting primaries for state executive offices. The state executive offices up for primary include:

Alabama
• Public Service Commissioner
