BTW, I'm going to be out for about a week, so I'll miss a few weeks. I might join back in afterwards, but if things have gone too far without me, then I'll drop out.

Honestly --I'm trying to do this as honestly and fairly as possible --but I don't think you're going to dent Gillibrand's numbers.

Oh, I'm fully aware of that. I'm just going for a Paul- or Hunstman-type thing.

Just to clarify, the past week of campaigning was Friday and Saturday, so the new week is today and tomorrow. Right?

Yeah, I'm home from school for the weekend and didn't have a chance to post anything today --but I will within the next hour.

FYI - Whoever wins the Dem/GOP nomination I will ask to count how many stops you made in each state up to the point that you won the nomination (or if everyone else drops out). I have been keeping track of this as best as possible and this will help me determine a few variables for the general election.

Example:

Nick's Campaign Schedule

3/11 - Iowa
3/12 - Iowa/NH
3/14 - NH/California

Iowa - 1.5
NH - 1
California - .5

Don't go smaller than halves, I'm not that picky. (Don't send me the # now, I'll want it when you win the nomination).


Gillibrand/Trump/Hagel - Try to make at least one post per week (the real 7 day week not the game week) while the GOP contest is still being contested. I'm not making any "schedule" requirements for this post, just a general post of whatever campaign related stuff you want to post.

Are states winner-take-all, or proportional in this game?

Pretty confident I explain it on the first page but if there is a "W" next to the # of GOP delegates then that state is winner take all. Democratic Primary is all proportional. Both primaries have a 15 percent threshold

Accepting requests for endorsements. You can send me 4 names. I will give you between zero and four of them depending on how realistic they are and how well you are doing right now.

Also accepting polling requests.

I'm sorry if this comes across as rude, but is Chuck Hagel going to actually be considered a serious contender with comments like that?

Senator Hagel on Sandoval-
"I sure am glad to see the Governor out there campaigning... I have heard syphilitics often can't rise from bed- to see him doing so well is fabulous. I just hope those folks he meets wash their hands afterwards"

This kind of comment will keep Hagel in the single digits.

But you do have to admit that 'Hagelgate' just rolls off the tongue.

Would it be at all possible to get some battleground maps? Smiley

If you have time, obviously.

...Just wondering if Gillibrand would be able to put some of my bus tour states in play Tongue ...

Yeah, I'll try to make a battleground map --lemme see how it goes with making it for both Sandoval v. Gillibrand and Sandoval v. Gillibrand --otherwise I'll def have them for when there is a GOP nominee.

It does roll off the tongue well.

Sandoval/Gillibrand/Trump/Hagel - Since Sandoval and Gillibrand are now the presumptive nominees we're going to skip a few months in this whole process.

The game will re-start on July 1st 2016 and the election will be held on November 8th 2016. Your first post or so will be announcing your Vice Presidential candidate. Feel free to grab another person from the forum to be your VP, just clear it with me first, or just post on your own.

As per the rules in the primary, you may only be in a maximum of two states per day.

One week in game will still be every two days IRL.

The Republican National Convention will be August 15 - 19.

The Democratic National Convention will be August 29 - September 2.

I think in total that means the game should go for 14 days IRL. We'll start tomorrow, March 7.

Other questions?

Yes. Former Vice President/former President/President/Vice President usage must be OK'd by me first.

Senator Hagel Announces VP Pick

"Since the trend here seems to be to choose fat obnoxious Yankees as running mates, I have made a decision- if Governor Sandoval thinks Governor Christie's straight talk makes him a statesman- I am here to one him up... I am proud to announcea  fighter, a woman, a lesbian, the next Vice President of the United States Rosie O'Donnell!!!"



O'Donnell-
"Thank you Senator Hagel- it is an honor to join your ticket as you have actually fought for the country w all love... this will be a difficult campaign but we can win because the American people are sick and tired of syphilitics like Sandovval and Barbie dolls like Gillibrand...they want fighters and that is who we are and by the way- Kiss my big lesbian behind Donald Trump!"

Senator Hagel's spokesman-
"Senator Hagel congratulates Senator Gillibrand for choosing a running mate with military experience- even if he was a reservist, Governor Beebe answered his call. Compare this to the Republican ticket- a syphilitic and a human hot air balloon- neither of whom have served their nation in uniform. Senator Hagel looks forward to debating these chickenhawks..."


Clarence - I don't know what you're trying to get at it. If you have a problem with the way I'm running this then speak up. If you're just being a nitwit then get out of the game. Actually, you're out of the game so don't bother. I gave you a few chances already.
