What is Super Tuesday? Ted Oberg explains what's at stake.

Cruz spent Monday all over the state of Texas. He had three rallies -- one each in Dallas, San Antonio and here in Houston. That effort is a signal that the Cruz campaign recognizes the importance of doing well in his home state, especially since Texas is the biggest prize today with 155 delegates at stake.

"I think we're going to have a very, very good day in Texas and if you look nationally, we are neck and neck with Donald Trump in Super Tuesday states all over the country," Cruz said.

Cruz will cast his ballot this morning. He joked he's already made up his mind about who he'll pick for President of the United States. He is also the only candidate on either side of the aisle spending election night in Texas. His watch party is in Stafford.
