happy if that were the case. >> the candidates also tackled issues of race and gun violence. both are hoping for a boost in saturday's south carolina primary where clinton is favored before the whirlwind super tuesday when nearly more than 1,000 delegates are up for grabs. and that massive number of delegates up for grabs brings us tracie potts with a look at those 11 states that could all but lock up for the race for the number two front-runners. >> it's going to be very interesting to see what happens after super tuesday. because this could be a key month for democrats and republicans in this race. take a look at that map of the states that are going to be voting. it's the largest contest that we've seen so far. it's the first time we'll see people in the midwest voting. the largest state so far, texas, we'll have those delegates up for grabs, and donald trump is hoping to clinch it on super tuesday. more than half the delegates needed for the nomination. he goes in to this with three of
