First RNC Ballots for POTUS and VPOTUS has been cast and posted now you have until Tuesday to fight for the Nomination on the Second Ballot, so convince as many Delegates as you can to support you as all the Delegates from Candidates who dropped out of the primaries are now open for you to get on your side. Remember, everything counts. Have fun, Jaguar and UWS!

Hopefully beginning of the day. If not, Early afternoon. I'm also writing a video script for my YT Channel, so I'll be very busy along with my school work.

If I may, there are more than a few similarities to 1960 here.

A northeastern Democratic Senator runs with a southerner from Texas as an olive branch to southern Democrats, while a moderate to conservative Republican runs with a more liberal Republican from the northeast.

The Southern Democrats wouldn't support someone like Kennedy, but their not your main core of support. It's expected they would do something about you being Nominated when there are three pro-civil rights tickets on the ballot as an option to the south. However, the Rockefeller thing is only temporary. You can expect a large convention bump from the DNC turn, and then it will get close again, as all Elections do get closer after the Conventions with few exceptions. If you want, I can do a news story that will disadvantage Dillion to even it out.

I’m predicting that Kennedy will still end up winning as he probably would of beaten Nixon OTL in 68 if he had lived.

Yeah, just give me a few minutes. I'm doing a BeeCee fic and that's taking some time due to me having to watch every episode of TFP and then writing a chapter. So that's one reason why it's taking a while.

Given the potential of a Southern candidate, would I be able to join as a Southern Democrat candidate?

Just your luck, I posted it. Would you like the ability to play as the Ross Barnett/Richard Russell ticket?

Also, if anyone wants the polls for at least three battleground states each, just ask me and I will post them in the Gameplay Thread. (Rockefeller isn't on the ballot in the deep south and Barnett isn't on the Ballot outside of the South, to make things somewhat easier).

You can choose to be either the running mate for ASPN or you can play as the Rockefeller ticket.

Granted. You can be either John Anderson or Richard Russell Jr. once he makes his choice official.
