CARTER COUNTY, Okla. -- With Super Tuesday just around the corner, Republicans in Oklahoma met for one last push.

"The votes of Oklahomans and other southern states will count very heavily in this."

Bill Stemmons is a volunteer for the Huckabee Campaign. He says that’s why members of the GOP say they were glad to meet at the Chickasaw Library to talk about the ideals of the Presidential candidates. "I think it's important for people to realize that this race is not even close to being over. We have less than 9 percent of the delegate votes for the Republican National Convention selected at this point."

Participants at Saturday’s convention say that’s why voting is so important. Margie Brown is a Chairman of the Carter County Republicans party. She says, "Because our vote counts, we need to have the best person up there. If you don't vote you're taking that privilege away.” Brown says that there is a candidate for everyone and differences aren’t always a bad thing. “We have differences, but that's okay. That's the freedom, and it's important to get out there. Every vote counts."

One of the speakers says the Republicans have a track record of doing well. As long as party members remember that the issues are the main focus, not personal attacks and preliminary statistics. "When we talk about the issues as Republicans, we actually do well in elections. When we begin to talk about personalities or people's personalities, we don't do quite as well."

KXII will have complete coverage on Super Tuesday beginning at 5:30 am on First News AM.
