After consulting with Sjoyce, I will be taking over as the game master.

Mitt Romney will withdraw this week - I'll give details as to why in my update, which will occur tonight. Mitt Romney's endorsements will be open season.

I'll announce any rule changes as I decide them.

You were doing a massively great campaign!

Smiley This allows me to focus more on Bloomberg. Plus, it evens out the field a lot more.

Well... I wasn't expecting that. Sad thing to see Romney go, but polls will go insane from now on...

I know this update isn't too detailed, specifically in that I did not do endorsements (don't worry, there will be plenty of time later for endorsements, plus, I think you all have a good set of folks to work with for another week.)

As you can see, there is no debate question this week. Starting next turn, I will be changing the format to where each candidate will receive a grade on their answer, rather than doing a poll, and that grade will affect their polling numbers. It will be a good opportunity for candidates struggling to gain traction to get a boost.  A fantastic debate could give you a Gingrich-esque bounce...I am fully prepared to take things into my hands a bit and allow for extreme flexibility in the polling. There will be scandals, and there will be big momentum shifts. With the current field, I think that's the only realistic way to go forward.

PM me your request. Due to the craziness of the campaign, I'll likely allow it, but please understand that you'll be faced with a penalty/disadvantage for starting late.

An update will come this afternoon. New rules will also be announced.

EDIT: I lied, I thought the turn had ended last night instead of just a few minutes ago. The next update will be tomorrow!!

New update.

Rule changes:

- Beginning December 1st, Third Party candidates will be allowed to begin posting.

- I will be changing the debate result format. No longer will a poll be done - I want debates to be an opportunity for lesser-known candidates to have an opportunity to surge up, as was done in real life. Hence, I will give each response a letter grade, and that will have a direct affect in your polling numbers. If you're a candidate struggling to boost your numbers, I'd highly suggest putting some time into your debate answers.

- This week will be the final week for new candidates to enter the race.

- REMEMBER TO PM ME FOR ENDORSEMENTS! Smiley Just a note: Major organizations, such as the NRA, will not be granted by request.

Michele Bachmann will drop out of the race and endorse Herman Cain for President.

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.

Sorry to y'all for abandoning this. Been a busy few weeks for me.



Anywho, I'll be running a campaign - hopefully I can manage at least that. I'll go with Buddy Roemer anyways - the longshot of all longshots, he is. I'll start once the next update appears.

Please have patience, my friends. I'll try and squeek out an update tonight, but it'll likely be tomorrow (might try and throw one in before work). I want to do endorsements on this one, which takes a little bit of time (though granted, endorsements don't account for much, rather are just ways of me telling you that your campaign is going well). Wink There is a boost though, just in case some start freaking out...
