After more thought i'm leaning towards king.

Alright, make an announcement speech and then prepare to campaign once the Next Turn has been posted.

On here or game thread?

Post the announcement speech in the game thread.

If I do lose the Primary, I'll announce my Candidacy for the TN Senate in 2018 that way Bredesen may be able to remain a strong challenge to any Republican or Democrat President that he thinks doesn't have the best ideas in mind for America.

When he gets back, yes. But I think we should still follow his rules and elect a temporary moderater when he isn't here.

Is it possible for me to get an extension on my schedule post? I've been quite busy the last two days and will be much more free tomorrow.

Glad to see ya back! Be sure to check the PMS. Also, do you know when you can release state polling for other states like South Carolina or Nevada?

I think this will be the first official results of each primary for each state if the current polls continue:



Bredesen is currently leading in Iowa and possibly SC too, so expect him to win those states, Bernie may be able to snatch NH, but NV is a sure Clinton win.



Cruz can definitely carry IA but he may not be the best fit for NH, SC, and NV. I fully expect Jindal to carry SC and NV while Portman carries NH

also, here is the current Cruz v Clinton v King situation:



Due to vote splitting, quite a few states will be very different

I think Rob Portman will do better in Nevada than 4th since he has the endorsements from both the sitting Senator and Governor

I think Rand Paul would be able to outperform in South Carolina when you take into consideration he already has endorsements from Senator Tim Scott and Governor Nikki Haley. Nonetheless I digress.

Rob Portman will probably do worse in SC since I won't really campaign there since it is basically a winner take all in delegates and I know Portman will not win.

Endorsements do matter, but not as much as campaign quality.

Agreed. If you have an endorsement from the President himself but you run a sucky campaign, you'll be running into a brick wall with voters and getting knock backed hard.

This is how I think it will turn out for Republicans:

Ted Cruz: 1st in Iowa, 4th in New Hampshire, 2nd in South Carolina and 3rd in Nevada

Rob Portman: 3rd in Iowa, 1st in New Hampshire, 4th in South Carolina and 1st in Nevada

Bobby Jindal: 2nd in Iowa, 5th in New Hampshire, 1st in South Carolina and 5th in Nevada

Rand Paul: 4th in Iowa, 2nd in New Hampshire, 3rd in South Carolina and 2nd in Nevada

Jim Mattis: 5th in Iowa, 3rd in New Hampshire, 5th in South Carolina and 4th in Nevada

Agreed. Although, not sure what I am doing wrong exactly. I don't play these types of campaign games often. Any tips?

You're best bet is to continuously state how you're going to implement your ideas and what they are. If possible and needed, defend them. Don't rely on surrogates, fight to show everyone how you stand.

I think your running a good campaign but there are just not that many libertarian Republicans in the party and you are focused too much on youth who usually don't vote Republican or even vote at all

So I essentially need to outreach towards different voters. I think that's probably best.
