BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota Republicans wanting a say in who will oppose President Barack Obama come November are gearing up to vote in the 10-state bonanza known as Super Tuesday.

The event features contests from Alaska to Massachusetts as the largest single day of voting yet in the Republicans' topsy-turvy primary race.

The candidates largely have skipped by North Dakota, with the exception of Ron Paul, who drew thousands last month during a two-day visit. Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum have made smaller-scale stops, while Newt Gingrich has talked about oil interests from afar.

North Dakota Republican Party Chairman Stan Stein tells the Bismarck Tribune that readying for Tuesday has been labor intensive. Stein says he'll announce results from the Ramada Plaza Suites in Fargo at about 10 p.m.
