Washington caucuses (40 delegates): Santorum hoping for a victory. Three delegates go to the winner of each of the state’s 10 congressional districts, an invitation for strong competition.

___

March 6 (Super Tuesday, seven primaries, three caucuses, 419 delegates total)

Alaska caucuses (24): Delegates are awarded in proportion to the statewide vote. Paul may fly there in search of an elusive victory.

Georgia primary (76): Gingrich’s home state when he was in Congress, and anything other than a victory would resurrect talk of a campaign exit.

Idaho caucuses (32): A large Mormon population makes this a natural fit for Romney. Santorum campaigned there last Wednesday, Paul on Friday.

Massachusetts primary (38): Romney could win all of the delegates in his home state.

North Dakota caucuses (28): Santorum made three stops in the sparsely settled state in a single day recently, and hopes to add it to his list of earlier caucus victories in Iowa, Minnesota and Colorado. Paul is also hoping for success.

Oklahoma primary (40): Private polling makes this a three-way toss-up among Romney, Santorum and Gingrich, who’s targeting it as part of a Southern-based revival strategy.

Ohio primary (63): A big battleground state, although the results of the Michigan primary on Feb. 28 are likely to reset the race instantly. As elsewhere, Restore Our Future, the pro-Romney Super-Pac, got the jump in television advertising.

Tennessee primary (55): One of the states Gingrich hopes will launch a comeback, and polling currently shows a competitive three-way race in a state that allocates delegates in proportion to the popular vote.

Vermont primary (17): The second New England state on the ballot, and the one with the fewest delegates of all the Super Tuesday states. Romney is favored although the delegates could be divided.

Virginia (46) : Romney figures to get all the delegates for little effort, with neither Santorum nor Gingrich on the ballot.
