NASHVILLE - Tennessee's 2020 political season is in full swing with Democratic presidential hopefuls already staffing up, making visits and, in some cases, spending money to win over voters in the Volunteer State.

That's because Tennessee is one of 14 states holding its presidential primary on Super Tuesday - March 3. Other Super Tuesday states include Alabama and North Carolina.

But Tennesseans may want to mark an even earlier date on this year's political calendar: Feb. 12. Because that's when two weeks of early voting begin here in the Republican and Democratic presidential primaries.

At least two Democratic billionaires, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Tom Steyer, are already spending on TV.
