Brian Sandoval Campaign Appearance:

Today at a rally in Bowling Green, Kentucky, Governor Sandoval was joined at a rally by former Governor Bob McDonnell of Virginia.


Today, I'm here to make an endorsement in the GOP Presidential race, and guess who it is for? (laughter) Today, I'm endorsing Governor Brian Sandoval for President. I've been following this race closely for the past few months, and I've concluded that Brian Sandoval will be the best General Election candidate and would make the best President of the bunch. Governor Sandoval is a likeable guy, has proven to be a strong debator, and overall has the best record, in my opinion, of all the candidates.

Now, Governor Bush is going around talking up the fact that he does the best against Senator Gillibrand. Good for him, I think any of the candidates in this race will be able to beat her in the General Election. But we also see a lot in favorable ratings - Governor Bush just has a +1 rating, with 91% having made their minds up about him. Brian, while trailing Gillibrand, has a +10 favorable rating, with just 70% having their minds made up. Governor Sandoval has more room to grow than any of the other candidates in the race, and I think that when Americans learn his story, see his accomplishments, and just get to know him, even more Americans will like him.

America, it's time to have a President that works for you. Brian Sandoval WILL be that President. Thank you, and God Bless!

Monday, November 23rd: Brian Sandoval Campaign Rally in Sarasota, Florida


Good afternoon, Florida!

We are beginning to wrap up our swing of Florida, and it has been such a pleasure to meet Floridans. Throughout any campaign, candidates often focus on rhetoric, rather than actual idea's. I'll admit, I myself fall victim to that - we'll often say what we think will win votes, rather than what we will do as President. Today, I'm here to outline a few of my goals if I am elected to be your next President.

Despite what the President may claim, America is still hurting - our unemployment rate is still way too high, and our national debt continues to increase. America has now had 7 years of reckless, irresponsible leadership. We simply cannot afford 4 more years.

The foundations of the American economy must be rebuilt and restructured, and I will do that under the beliefs of hard work, free enterprise, and American innovation. American innovation is what brought this country to where it is today, and it is what will keep is going forward as the strongest nation in the world.

As President, the first way we can get to economic security is to cut government - Americans don't need the government telling us what to do. As President, the first thing I will do is sign an executive order to allow each state to opt out of Obamacare. It is unconstitutional, and we simply can't afford to leave it around. Secondly, we will privatize Amtrack, reduce subsidies for humanities and the arts, and eliminate Title X Family Planning funds. Also, my plan will reduce foreign aid by over $100 million dollar. My plans, these idea's will be unpopular with many - my goal as President isn't going to be to make as many friends as possible. My goal will be to get America on the right, secure path.

America's best days are ahead of us. Join me, and let's restore hope to Americans. Thank you, and God Bless!

Sarah Palin:

Hello my fellow Republicans. The choice for my endorsement was difficult at first. But soon a cantidate emerged as my favorite. He stood out as a bold conservative alternative to the Democratic Party. Under his presidency America will rebound in our foreign policy and begin a nnew era contrasting the awful leadership of the past for years. For the reason Republicans I ask you to join me in voting for MARCO RUBIO!


Condi Rice:

Hello, and thank you for attending this news conference. This race has been very interesting with many cantidates who would all be an improvement on our current administration. But with my years as Sercetary of State I have met and delt with foreign issues. One of the few cantidates who I view as strong on  this issue is Marco Rubio. His stand on all issues not just foreign policy inspired me to make this desicion. Whether it was his victory in the Florida Senate election or his hard stand against protesters that were in favor of illegal immigration he has been a firm and strong cantidate.Thats why I need you to vote for him! Thank  you!

Statement from the Rubio Campaign: We greatly appreciate the endorsements of Governer Palin and Sercratary Rice. They have seen Rubio's commitment and we will be campigning with them over the next several weeks.

Brian Sandoval Campaign

Retired 4-star General and former Commander of Afghanistan Forces Stanley McChrystal held a press conference in Washington D.C.


I have the most respect for President Obama, and thank him for serving as our nation's President. However, I firmly believe that now is the time for not just a new leader, but a new direction.

I've been watching all of the candidates closely, specifically in what they're saying on foreign policy. I believe that America is the greatest nation in the world, and I don't think that's something we should apologize for, rather, we should use our power to promote peace and democracy throughout the world. I want our next President to be someone who shares those beliefs with me. America deserves someone who isn't a war-monger, but is ready and prepared to protect America from an attack.

With all of that in mind, I have decided to endorse Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval for the Republican nomination. If he is willing, I would love to campaign with him on the campaign trail. America needs a strong, tested leader. America needs Brian Sandoval. Thank you, and God Bless.




Statement from Governor Brian Sandoval

It's truly an honor and a blessing to have the endorsement of General McChrystal. General McChrystal has risked his life fighting for the many freedoms we have as Americans, and will always be considered an American hero to me. It would be an honor to have him come out on the campaign trail with me.

Rick Santorum

2012 was an exciting election year but 2016 looks as though it will be more interesting. The incompitence of the Administration will be continued if a Democrat is elected. On the Republican side I have been continuing to follow the race. It was early on I realized there was one cantidate that stood out. Whether it was their devotion to every life or their positive campaigning they stood out to me as a Conservative who can win. I followed his campaign since his announcement and am now proud to endorse United States Senator Marco Rubio.
   I view his competence on many issues and his experience in the Senate standing against Obamacare and cap-and-trade as assets for our victory when we take back the White House, lead our party to not just a presidential victory but those in the house and senate, and make 2016 a truly powerful year when America decides that apologizing to other nations doesn't cut it and that ignoring our worldwide allies is wrong. America, Rubio will lead our party and I hope you join me in voting for him. Thank you.

Bobby Jindal endorses Jeb Bush


Goose evening. I have been watching the race for quite some time now. And out of all the candidates, there has been only on whom I believe could reclaim the White House next year. That man is my dear friend, Jeb Bush.

Governor Bush has, by far, the best experience of anyone in the field. His example has been a model for every Republican governor, including myself. Governor Bush is an all-around conservative: he has worked to protect life, cut taxes, and reform education. He commands great dignity, and, as polls suggest, could hold his own against Senator Gillibrand.

We as a nation cannot afford to allow the Democrats four more years of free reign in the White House. We need someone with the credibility, experience, and the ideas to help us win in 2016; and I believe Jeb Bush is that man./i]

The next "week" starts now. December 1 - 8, 2015

Quote
Debate Points (Adjusted for 5 participants)

Best Answers - +3 national polls, +5 in state poll (where the debate occurs)
2nd Best Answers - +2 in national polls, +3 in state poll
3rd  - No change
4th - -2 national, -3 state
5th - -3 national, -5 state


Debate Narrative:

Audience members at home found that Governor Bush had the best answers, followed closely by Governor Sandoval. Governor Christie came in third, neither impressing the audience or standing out like Sandoval or Bush did. Senator Rubio failed to distinguish himself from the crowd, coming in fourth, and Congressman West's performance was the least favorable of all the candidates in the debate.

Early Week Polling:

Democratic Primary New Hampshire:

Gillibrand: 78%
Sanders: 7%

Democratic Primary Iowa:

Gillibrand: 68%
Sanders: 3%

National GOP Polling:

Bush: 33%
Sandoval: 27%
Christie: 20%
Rubio: 15%
West: 5%

Iowa GOP Polling:

Sandoval: 33%
Bush: 25%
Christie: 18%
West: 15%
Rubio: 5%

NH GOP Polling:

Bush: 35%
Christie: 30%
Sandoval: 18%
Rubio: 12%
West: 1%

South Carolina GOP Polling:

Rubio: 23%
Sandoval: 22%
Bush: 16%
Christie: 16%
West: 11%

(Feel free to request states on the other thread)

As South Carolina voters start paying more attention to the race expect more changes in polling.

Continued Narrative:

War breaks out between Pakistan/Iran and India. The final stimulus was a small exchange between Pakistani and Indian forces near the Kashmir which quickly escalated. Currently, Indian forces have pushed Pakistani forces behind their own lines and the United Nations has quickly called on both nations to stop and for nuclear weapons to not be used.

Reportedly, the United States is considering "securing" the nuclear facilities in Pakistan. Pakistan has not taken nuclear weapons off the table but have said that they have confident that the war can be won without them. Pakistan has also pledged to secure Afghanistan and has moved troops into Afghanistan. The Civil War in Afghanistan continues with major fighting in Kabul.

Domestically, the economy is still improving but the stock market plummets to its lowest level in the President second term due to the outbreak of war on the Indian subcontinent. Inflation was steady in November 2015 and unemployment continued to fall. President Obama's approval rating was 45% before the outbreak of the war.

POLL QUESTION

Should the United States intervene in the civil war in Afghanistan?

Yes: 23%
No: 65%
Unsure: 12%

Should the United States send troops to intervene in the civil war in Afghanistan?

Yes: 10%
No: 85%
Unsure: 5%

Should the United States use manless predator drones to aid government forces in Afghanistan?

Yes: 38%
No: 52%
Unsure: 10%

Christie's Speech on Education:

"...one of the most important issues in this election that doesn't get enough traction is education. Education reform is what we need to get serious about as a nation, otherwise America is going to falter and fail in the 21st century. The notion that we can simply throw money at the problem in hopes that it will go away in nonsense. Maybe in a socialist utopia, like the one Senator Gillibrand professes, but that's not how I see America regaining it's leading edge in education.

We first must acknowledge that the public school system is failing in America, and has been failing for a great many years. The solution has been to throw money down from the federal government to the state, with all the golden goodies of mandates and standards. The fact is Washington doesn't know how to educate our kids, and frankly they shouldn't be in that business. It should be up to the states and thus the local communities and most important of all, parents to help in seeing that our kids receive a world class education.

That is why I am proposing in this campaign to run on the platform of abolishing once and for all the Department of Education.

[Cheers]

This used to be on the Republican Platform, but after 1996 we've settled with the Department, and by settling with it, we've allowed the beast to grow and grow, turning into something that is not about education, but another bloated bureaucracy, something Washington doesn't need.

[Cheers]

The department needs to be done away entirely and from there reserve the rights for education to be mastered as the state and local level. Let them decide the guideline, because they know their kids, they know the needs. Washington doesn't.

[Cheers]

In dealing with our public schools, they should not be done away with, but instead reformed. We need to increase accountability of our teachers. Great teachers want to be held accountable, they want a standard to go by. It's time we took that into place. Teachers that are good, don't fear being accountable, because they know what they're doing is for the benefit of the students. It's time to reward the teachers that actually teach, and fire the ones who don't.

[Cheers]

Now there will be public schools that cannot be fixed, like what we had in New Jersey. We had two hundred failing public schools and it is by no fault of the kids, but they're trapped and had no wiggle room. So we gave them choices and the choice was to replace to the two hundred failing public schools with charter schools. It creates competition, it's good for the market place and most important of all it's good for the kids.

[Cheers]

Now, we are going to continue to ignore the problems of education, or we are going to respond and respond with vigor and resolve. I am committed to making American number one again in education, because for this nation to lead the world it has to start at the education level. We need to educate our children and make them competitive in this global economy. For I know our kids can out compete any other kids on the face of the earth. We have the innovation, we have the resources, it's time we got serious about education and fixed it once and for all. Thank you all so very much, God Bless you."

[Cheers]

Excerpt from Hannity:
Q. You've slipped in the national polls. You did not have the greatest debate performance recently and now Governor Bush is leading in NH, a state that is seen as your firewall. What's next?

A. I'm not worried Sean. We just introduced my plan for education reform that is bold and I know will rub a lot of the people the wrong way, but that's what I believe and I'm sticking with it. In terms of national polls, they don't really mean much at this point. No one has voted yet, wait until Iowa, and New Hampshire vote and then we'll see how everything is.

Q. Are you confident about winning New Hampshire?

A. Politics is ever changing Sean, you and I both know that, so I'm not going to speak in absolutes. I know we're going to do well in New Hampshire, that's why I'm here all this week. The people here care about the process and I've got two great surrogates in Governor Lamontagne and Governor Romney with me on the stump. I'll make my case and what happens, happens.

Q. Will you support the Republican nominee, should you not win?

A. No one needs to question my commitment to Conservative values and principles. I will support whoever the nominee is, because he'll be a lot better than President Obama's failed leadership and the continuation of that failure, which Senator Gillibrand is pushing.

2. Town Hall at the University of New Hampshire, Town Hall in Portsmouth, NH, Town Hall in Nemarket, NH, Town Hall in Derry, NH, Town Hall in Candida, NH, Meet and Greet in Manchester, NH

We need to take back the White House and deliver a landslide against Obama and the other Democrats. (Cheers)

Brian Sandoval Campaign Schedule: December 1st


Monday, December 1st:
Meet and Greet in Jesup, Iowa
Lunch with Small Business Owners in Gilbertville, Iowa
Appearance on KWWL 7 TV Station out of Waterloo, Iowa
Campaign Rally in Waterloo, Iowa
Townhall Meeting in Evansdale, Iowa

Meet and Greet in Jesup, Iowa: Rand Paul

Good morning! It's an honor to be on the campaign trail for the next few weeks with Governor Brian Sandoval!

I'd like to think I know Iowa pretty well, after helping my Dad campaign here in 2008 and nearly win in 2012. I know this state, I know the people, and I care about the people of Iowa. Iowa deserves the best, and y'all deserve a President that'll fight for you. My father spent decades in Washington fighting for liberty and freedom, and I know that as your President, Brian Sandoval will continue my father's legacy!


Campaign Rally in Waterloo, Iowa: Brian Sandoval

Thank you all, it's good to see such a great crowd here this evening!

Americans have always taken on challenges - it's part of our DNA. We are a nation with a history of struggles as well as prosperity. Growing up, my family was a part of that struggle, struggling to survive through America's economic hardships. We depended, though, on our neighbors and ourselves to get through tumultuous times, not the government. We believed in God and our neighbors, not the government. We as Americans still have that same spirit, though our current government is doing everything it can do erase it because it believes it knows better - government creates all jobs, government makes life better for everyone, and makes us all healthy, strong individuals. That's what they want you to think, but it's not the case. We must return to the roots of our founders - a constitutionally conservative government - if we want to secure a strong and prosperous future for our children and grandchildren.

There's an expression that's very fitting for the Obama administration - kicking the can down the road. Our nation cannot afford to continue to rack up debt. We cannot afford an unconstitutional health plan. We cannot afford four more years of failed leadership home and abroad. We cannot afford four more years of millions of Americans out of work and a government inept to solve such a huge problem. We cannot afford four more years of a foreign policy that leads from behind and doesn't stand up to our enemies. Simply put, we cannot afford four more years of Democratic leadership!

I'm running in this race for you, Iowa, and the millions of Americans that hope and pray for a better tomorrow. Thank you, God Bless you Iowa!

Brian Sandoval Campaign Schedule: December 2nd and 3rd


Tuesday, December 2nd:
Breakfast in Independence, Iowa
Luncheon with local GOP officials in Manchester, Iowa
Reading to Elementary Students in Dyersville, Iowa
Campaign Rally in Dubuque, Iowa
Meeting with Supporters in Dubuque, Iowa

Meeting with Supporters in Dubuque, Iowa: Brian Sandoval

Thank you all for all the hard work and commitment you've made during this campaign to us. My family is so grateful for everything you've done. We've made so many friends along the way, and it's hard to believe that in about a month, the race to Iowa will be over.

Honestly, I feel very confident about our chances here - we're consolidating support here and holding a moderate lead, and I look to keep it over the coming weeks. We've been surging nationally, but I'd be lying to say that I'm not disappointed - I was hoping for stronger numbers these past two weeks.

It's fine though, I'm happy where we're at. We're somewhat of the underdog in this race - not a lot of attention has been paid to our campaign, but we keep slowly creeping up. I expect attacks to eventually come, and I'll be ready for them - I have a strong record as Governor of Nevada, and I'll match it up against any of the other folks in this race.

We're preparing to be in this for the long haul. I don't think this race will be wrapped up by the end of January, as nice as that would be. Caucus day won't be the end of our campaign here, though. We'll continue to maintain forces so that we'll be ready to go once the General Election campaign begins.

Once again, thank you all for your support and contributions!


Wednesday, December 3rd:
Luncheon with State Party Leaders in Columbia, South Carolina
Meet and Greet in Dentsville, South Carolina
Campaign Rally in St. Andrews, South Carolina

Luncheon with State Party Leaders in Columbia, South Carolina: Brian Sandoval

Thank you all for having me here today.

Our campaign is very excited by our rise in the polls here in South Carolina, and we're committed to expanding our support to all corners of the state.

Now is the time to somewhat revamp our campaign strategy, and that's what we're doing - the last few months have largely been fundraising and getting our name out there - now we have to start convincing voters why we'd make the best candidate. I've personally begun making this pitch, not only to conservative Republicans, but also to Independent voters. We have to win over these voters if we want to beat Senator Gillibrand next fall, and I believe starting early with them is the best strategy.

I'll address the concern some have with my campaign - I'm currently trailing Gillibrand. I expected that, as my name recognition isn't as high as my opponents. I don't have a father and brother who used to be Presidents, that's for sure! But, looking at the crosstabs, I have the most potential of the candidates. Looking at the numbers, I have high favorable ratings, at +10. In comparison, Governor Bush just has +1, and 91% have already formed an opinion on him. I believe I am the candidate that will be best suited to face off against Senator Gillibrand next fall, and I look forward to continuing to prove that to you throughout this primary. Thank you.

Jeb Bush Interview, Debuque, Iowa

Reporter 1: Governor, I see you have just left a rally with Governor Jindal.

Jeb: Yes, and let me tell you, we have never had a better day here in Iowa. We have had a lot of positive feedback with our debate performance and gaining Bobby's endorsement.

Reporter: You currently lead nationally, and fare the best against Senator Gillibrand. However, you personal approval ratings are virtually even. Could you be seen as a divisive figure?

Jeb: No, I don't. It's still early, and only one poll. I'm frankly worried about getting our message out to the American people. I believe Americans to be competent enough to see how my vision of empowering people to make their own choices regarding education, healthcare, and retirement contrasts with Gillibrand's vision of more government.

Reporter: Governor Christie has just unveiled his plan for Education reform, which includes abolishing the Department of Education. What is your response to that?

Jeb: First, Governor Christie tried his best, and many time succeeded in trying to bring in the Teacher's unions, and reforming education in New Jersey. I admire that. I also think his plan would help restore opportunity, as we have been advocating, in the area of education.

The only major area I disagree with Christie's plan is his proposal to be, as you've mentioned, is his plan to abolish the Department of Education. Sure, it has harmed Education more than helped it. But I believe that a scaled down DOE, possibly to the size of an agency, would serve as well, and who's focus would be granting PELL Grants to help boost choice in Education.

Reporter: Any more endorsements...

Jeb: We will announce two more. I can tell you that one of them will endorse me in a coming Wall Street Journal Op-Ed. The other will appear with me at a rally this weekend.

Reporter: Thank you, Governor.

Jeb: Likewise.

Brian Sandoval Campaign Schedule: December 4th and 5th


Thursday, December 4th:
Outline Government Regulation Policy at Woffard College
Luncheon with supporters in Spartanburg, South Carolina
Townhall in Saxon, South Carolina
Townhall in Southern Shops, South Carolina

Outline Government Regulation Policy at Woffard College: Brian Sandoval

Good morning.

The agenda President Barack Obama has pushed for has brought increased regulation to America. Major initiatives such as Dodd-Frank and Obamacare represent an increase on the regulatory burden on the American economy. And in a time of economic hardships, the EPA has been there every step of the way with their war on carbon dioxide. The EPA continues to issue endless new regulations that only hurt our economic group.

The regulation is not only costing companies money, but it affects taxpayers as well, and we must stop it. This is my plan when it comes to dealing with government regulation:


- Repeal Obamacare.
- Replace Dodd-Frank
- Repeal Community Reinvestment Act
- Amend Sarbanes-Oxley to take pressure off mid-sized companies from the massive requirements
- Replace EPA with an agency that will work with communities and businesses to create business-friendly, environmentally-friendly policy
- Review and eliminate almost all of the Obama-era regulations
- Allow companies the time needed to make adjustments as environmental laws are passed
- Require Congressional approval of all major regulations

A bold, aggressive agenda must be sought out by our next President that will limit government regulations and put the power back in the hands of the people. That's what I plan to do.

Friday, December 5th:
Meet and Greet in Inman, South Carolina
Meet and Greet in Campobello, South Carolina
Luncheon in Landrum, South Carolina
Campaign Rally in Greenville, South Carolina

Campaign Rally in Greenville, South Carolina: Bob McDonnell

Good evening, South Carolina! It's good to be here with you all!

Like you, I'm a Southerner. I'm a "Bible thumping and Gun Clinging" conservative, and I love my country. Man, I love my country, and there's nothing that troubles me more than the current state of things. We have a President who's solution to every problem is to spend, spend, spend! And we have a Congress that lets him do it!

I'm out here campaigning tonight because I believe with my whole heart that Brian Sandoval will represent a change to this party, and to our nation. He is a man of conviction, a man of integrity and honesty, and a man who deeply cares and is committed to improving our nation.

America's best days are ahead of us under the bold leadership of Brian Sandoval. Join me, and let's make America great again!

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

Alfred is the Atlasian equivalent of a malevolent deity.

Buddy, you need to read the rules. I control all endorsements and I'm fairly sure that I did not give you Kucinich's endorsement.

Narrative:

President Obama in an Oval Office Address says that "we cannot forget the sacrifices that were made for our freedom in Afghanistan but we cannot risk the lives of more Americans. Tomorrow, I will order unmanned predator drone strikes on anti-government forces in Afghanistan. Our action will be limited and our allies in NATO have our backs...I warn Pakistan and Iran right now that if they are caught aiding the anti-government forces in Afghanistan in any way there will be dire consequences."

The President also adds in "Any nation that uses nuclear weapons is not a friend of the United States" and that the US plans to continue trying to mediate the war between Pakistan, India and Iran.

President Obama's approval jumps to near 60% in the next few days, many are calling this address his best Oval Office address yet.

Congressional Republicans are generally supportive of the President's actions as are Democrats with a minority on either side calling for no intervention. Some Republicans are calling for directly assisting India by putting boots on the ground, but these are an even smaller minority than the ones calling for no intervention whatsoever.

Overshadowed by the war, the President has a chance to put a new Board of Governors for the Federal Reserve. He is widely expected to put an expert on inflation on the Board but pundits have been wrong before.

Poll:

Do you support the President's decision on Afghanistan?

Yes: 73%
No: 20%
Unsure: 7%

Polling at the beginning of the  December 8 through 15, 2015 week

National GOP:

Bush: 30%
Sandoval: 29%
Christie: 19%
Rubio: 17%
West: 5%

Florida GOP:

Bush:  43%
Rubio: 35%
West: 11%
Sandoval: 6%
Christie: 5%

California GOP:

Christie: 30%
Bush: 23%
Sandoval: 15%
Rubio: 5%
West: 3%

South Carolina GOP:

Sandoval: 25%
Rubio: 24%
Bush: 16%
Christie: 15%
West: 11%
