CNN announced Thursday that the Georgia and Ohio Republican parties will co-sponsor a presidential debate, scheduled for March 1st.

The Republican parties of Georgia and Ohio will partner with CNN next month for a "Super Tuesday" debate, state GOP officials announced Thursday.

"With a combined 142 delegates up for grabs on March 6th, Georgia and Ohio are truly the power brokers in this year's Republican presidential contest," said Georgia Republican Party Chairman Sue Everhart.

"As residents of the quintessential presidential battleground state, Ohio voters have always taken their role in vetting and electing presidential candidates very seriously," said Ohio Republican Party Chairman Kevin DeWine.
