I'm extending this turn by 48 hours.

I sent you the responses of my interview in ReidOut a while back. Are you going to post them in the gameplay thread or should I?

I post the interviews with the start of the next turn, as I did the previous week.

Going to have Kathy Hochul drop out and endorse Eric Adams. Life is just too busy for me to be able to give this the time it needs any time soon.

!!

If Hochul is endorsing Adams he's basically won the primary and I may as well have Cooper drop out, too. I would implore you to reconsider and to keep Hochul from making an endorsement; that way the primary could remain competitive and the game could remain interesting/competitive (whereas, again, if you endorse Adams, I don't see any way for him to lose or for Cooper to win). I think it'd be much more interesting if Adams and I had to both try to win over Hochul supporters, rather than you just endorsing Adams and more or less handing him the nomination before a single primary. I mean, based on how well Spiral is running, he may well end up winning IA and NH even without your endorsement - but at least Cooper gets a good fighting chance and isn't DOA.

Not involved with the game anymore, but unless the new Kamala Harris player turns out to be atrocious, she should still have a good chance, as she's currently leading in the polls.

I doubt that all of Hochul's supporters are uniformly transferring to Adams right away, especially with not a single vote being cast yet. The remaining candidates all have their unique strengths and weaknesses among the electorate that we'll have to work with. I see this primary as being a very competitive three-way for a while.

Hochul's supporters will almost certainly be moving into the undecided column, but a decent chunk of them will be going to Harris because, y'know, sitting VP and all.

Fair enough but if she endorses Adams, Adams gets a major boost for sure. Given your trajectory in this game I'd say that would probably be enough to make you a clear favourite and put Cooper in a position where victory is very difficult - whereas right now, the game is still interesting and the race competitive, and at a place where I think all three of us (Harris, Adams, and Cooper) have decent shots at winning.

If Hochul endorses Adams, it'd make most sense for a plurality of supporters to sooner or later drift into his camp. Frankly, it logically doesn't make sense that if Candidate A drops out and endorses Candidate B, Candidate A's supporters on the whole support Candidate C rather than Candidate B.

GoTfan's the GM. And FYI, if I were still GM, I likely would have done the same thing. Being the incumbent VP has perks in a contested primary, especially with no clear Challenger in the progressive wing (though if GoTfan were still playing as Baldwin, she would have divided that support with Harris if I were still GM)

It's also down to the fact that Harris just has more name recognition.

Yeah, now I think about it, it’d make sense for a good number of Hochul’s supporters to also be females/feminists who want to see a woman elected to the White House. These people would naturally drift towards Harris after Hochul drops out because she’d be the only female candidate in the running.

All right, I'll stop my back-and-forth with Greg (the reason I'm even doing it is, and I suspect you realise this, it can't hurt with the Democratic base and makes Cooper seem like a liberal fighter without having to criticise any of the other candidates).

Do you need me to step in for a post or two? You can PM me your notes for the turn (or any debate info, if there's a debate this turn), and I'll happily post it for you.

I'll be putting up the polls when I get home frm the Red Cross today. The turn will start from when I put them up, as things have been a bit out of whack for everyone.
