On Tuesday, polls opened in states across the nation for Super Tuesday and candidates are scrambling to make the final push for votes. 

Even though Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are leading the polls, the rest of the candidates are hoping to use Tuesday to make-up some ground.

Senator Ted Cruz said a win in his home state of Texas would make this a tow-man race between him and Trump. 

"At the end of tomorrow, Donald Trump - is in all likelihood - going to have a big chunk of delegates," Cruz said. "And we are, I believe, going to have a big chunk of delegates. And I think everyone else will be way, way behind." 

On the democratic side, Bernie Sanders is focusing on getting ready for the general election to come. 

"We can win the Democratic nomination and if that happens, there is nothing more that I would love to do than run against Donald Trump," Sanders said. 
 
Right now, the polls are open across 12 state and one U.S. Territory.
