I have a better idea:

I'll play as Jesse Ventura running with the Libertarian party.

If Rand Paul get the nomination, you're doomed tho.

That is something to consider yes. Hmm, I'd hate to wait till primaries are over.

You can go for Angus King, who is quite popular already.

I was also considering him yes. Though I'd run into a similar issue if Bernie wins.

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

On here or game thread?

Content is definitely a big part of it. Detail and effort go a long way in these games. The ones who do the best tend to be the ones who put the most effort into their posts.

Can I be an Independent Jeb Bush or Jimmy Carter or George H.W. Bush

Jeb Bush is a republican, and Carter is a former president, and so is Bush.

While I am unsure on their chances, Jeb would not be the first person to be in one party, only to run under a third. George Wallace was a democrat who went to a third party in 68, teddy did it in 1912, and both Carter and daddy bush only had one term so could still run.

If a co-moderator wants to join, thats fine. I can pick one person. Just DM me if you want to be one, then I will chose.

The co-mod will create the debates, and maybe help out with announcements or polling from time to time.

Do they have to have dropped out or something else?

They must not be currently involved as a candidate.
I got plenty of time if I decide to drop out, but I don't know how well I'd do as a co-mod. I don't have any experience running election games, dunno how well I'd do if say, asked ot make polls.

ASPN is the new mod. He is running the game from now on, so respect him like you respected me.



I’ll moderate
Nope, sorry kid.





Thank you. I will start working on a turn tonight. Though considering I'm just now running it don't expect a turn soon. I'm off tomorrow so I will spend the day working on it.

Turn has been posted, thank you for the wait and for putting trust in me for game running. since I posted the endorsement reminder late (I forgot about it, my bad) People can send theirs to me and I will edit main post to include them. Jut wanted to get the turn out.

Oh and the rumor news thing is in case someone wants to drop in as King to replace me. Otherwise I will post a thing saying he dropped out, a different third party person can pop up if someone wants to.

Unfortunately, I'll have to drop out, considering I'm moderating a new game now.
Is it possible if Paul could get Jindal's endorsement? Wink

Keep that chatter to pms.

As for turn. It ends tonight unless people feel they need another 24 hours. Still a few who have not posted yet.

I'll definitely need more 24 hours. I'm currently studying for a test, so I'll not have many time to write a schedule and debate answers today.


I'll also need an extension.

Very well, we will have a 24 hour extension, turn will end Friday night.

Can I switch to Jindal?

So you would have Deval Patrick drop out and be Jindal? I'd be fine with that.

Can't wait for the new turn! Also just wanted to point out that it looks like whoever was running as Portman has gone completely inactive in the game.

Noticed that too. I'll look into it. If they gonna continue to be inactive I might just have to say they droped out. Also I need to redo polls before I post. I talked to wxtransit and they wish to have his last act as the character be what happened. I.E him dropping out and endorsing Paul. Sorry Vespucci. I know you wanted to take him over. Would you be okay going back to Deval?

Is this game dead? (I think we are all waiting for the Debate and state polls before we campaign).

I apologize for the wait. I have been debating and have decided that I do not feel able to finish the game. I'd think people wouldn't want to replace the mod again. Most of you are in other games anyways. I'm gonna say the game is dead.
