Portman First Month Of Campaigning

Portman spent much of March finishing senate business but he started to visit New Hampshire, Iowa, and Nevada. He also met with some high profile endorsements to try a woo over their support.

The game hasn't started yet. The game starts on Friday, and I will create a new thread for the gameplay.

Will this 2016 have the Iowa Ames straw poll?

I will think about it, it didn't occur in 2016 in RL but its a cool experience so we will see.

alright then. Will there be a debate per turn in the primaries?

First turn will have no debate but the second and most turns will have debates.

When we have Endorsements and their people, like a Senator or rep, can we post them giving an endorsement speech?

Sure, but let me post your endorsements next turn so that people know that you are campaigning with someone you are actually endorsed by.

Can I be Rep. G.K. Butterfield from North Carolina?

Welcome!

Can I change from Nikki Haley to Sen. Joe Manchin?

Sure! Just be Haley this turn and I will post some news about Haley dropping out next turn due to budget concerns. Post Manchin's announcement speech now and his polling will be shown next turn.

Also, is the state Polls going to be posted very soon?

I'm working on the post currently. Will be up in like, 20 mins.

With all that campaigning, how is Chris Christie so low?

This is the first Turn, everything does not take effect until turn 2. You'll Begin to see results then.
