WACO — As one of 14 states participating in Super Tuesday, Texas has the second most delegates to award behind California, with a staggering 228 up for grabs.

Of the delegates, 149 will be awarded based on the results in each of the 31 state Senate districts. The remaining will be awarded based on the results of the vote statewide.

There's a 15% threshold that will most likely be a game changer across our state.

Simply explained, the 15% electoral threshold means in some congregational districts or state wide, candidates must achieve 15% to be edible for any delegates.

If they miss that mark, they're not eligible for a single delegate.

Both Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden, who have led in recent public polls across the state, are projected at the moment to have little trouble surpassing the 15% threshold in Texas.

Ahead of today, Sanders leads the pack in Texas--followed by Biden.
