ATLANTA (AP) -- Secretary of State Brian Kemp says Georgia will hold its presidential primary on Super Tuesday.

Kemp made the announcement Thursday that Georgians will go to the polls on March 6.

State lawmakers gave Kemp until Dec. 1 to set Georgia's primary day. But the Republican National Party has asked states to submit their primary dates by Saturday.

Republican National Committee rules forbid any state other than Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina from holding a primary before March 6. States that violate RNC rules are subject to losing half their delegates to the Republican Convention in Tampa, Florida, next August.

Already, Missouri has set its date for Feb. 7, and Arizona and Michigan have set presidential primaries for Feb. 28.
