Video: Vying for the southern vote
|CNN's Mark Potter looks at some Southern issues.|
MIAMI (CNN) -- Voters in six southern states prepare to head to the polls for Tuesday's primary, and both presidential candidates are well aware that the region's demographic terrain has decidedly shifted from the traditional "Old South" to a culturally diverse "New South."
Both Republican Texas Gov. George W. Bush and Democrat Vice President Al Gore are sons of the South, and each candidate is honing in on issues of importance to southern voters -- such as urban sprawl, the economy, education and the environment -- in an effort to court an important regional voting bloc.
CNN's Mark Potter takes a look at the "Old vs. New South" and the effect the region may have on the November election.
