California to make Feb. 5 'Super-Duper'
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- California will officially move its presidential primary from early June to February 5 when Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signs the change into law Thursday morning in Sacramento.
At least 20 states have either moved or are considering moving their presidential primary or caucuses to this date, sometimes called "Super-Duper Tuesday," making the first Tuesday in February the second biggest day of voting in 2008 after only the general election in November.
California, the most populous state in the union, represents the largest prize for both the Democratic and Republican nomination contests.
