Have already started work on a post with the details of Cooper's campaigning in NH (IA and NC/SC are posted). Should be up in the next hour and a half (need to go now but when I'm back I'll wrap it up).

If I see one more attack from you, I'm putting you in jail for marijuana related charges.

Now I'm depressed that I stepped down as GM (then again, if I were GM still, we'd have just passed election day 2023 right now.) I would have had fun scoring the Harris/Cooper fighting.

LOL.

Seriously though, I didn't put any: for NH I just gave a broad schedule/summary of what I did daily (similar to the schedule you put up for Harris) and didn't feature any excerpts from Cooper's rallies (as it is there were a lot of town halls and not that many rallies).

I made a calculated decision to accelrate the turns. A big problem games have is petering out before they reach the primaries, and I wanted to avoid that.

When IA's results come in, will you just give the final results statewide, or also give a county map and/or results by congressional districts?

I'd actually like to know too (so I can learn some formatting tricks if I want to attempt to do this again in the future. It's unlikely, as I prefer playing these games to hosting them, but every bit of knowledge helps me out).

I hate that it's come to this so early, but Adams will regrettably have to drop out for personal reasons. He fully endorses Cooper for the nomination.

Trying to figure out the point of continuing a campaign at this point that is certain to lose, will make a decision on withdrawing in a couple of hours.

Soon. I've closed the turn permanently now.

I would hope Adams endorsing me at least makes me the favourite to win though, and makes me significantly likelier to win IA, NH and NV (all states in which I was down) and SC (the one state I was within striking distance of).

Will Iowa mark the end of the term or will it be in the middle of it and we will have the option to campaign and assess after the contest?

So to be clear, we have a few days to put up campaign info for January 19-22, and THEN you'll put up the results for the IA caucus?

it will be in the middle of the turn, yes. I'm releasing the coverage 36 hours into the turn to simulate the fact that they're happening in the 22nd and not the 18th. Bit of suspense makes everything a lot more fun for me.

I'll be putting up the results midway through the turn regardless of what posts have been made.

Polls will be relased as soon as I finish my shift today.

Will NH also be happening on this turn, or will it be happening on the next turn?
Also, will/can there be a debate between Harris and Cooper before the NH primary?

Just me, speaking as a veteran player and former GM, but a Harris/Cooper ticket would be very effective in November...

NH takes centre stage next turn.

There will be a debate next turn as well, schedule t occur befre the NH primary.

In addition, I'm adding a new feature to this game: campaign insights. basically small notes that might be written up by campaign advisors for each candidate. I'll PM them to each player.

For Cooper, if he gets nominated, my personal feeling is Baldwin would be perfect. Progressive and would absolutely help with that wing of the party, scandal-free, from a swing state and very popular there, LGBTQ+, female. I really can't think of a better VP choice on the whole.

That's fine; I intend to be president and am not interested in settling for EPA Administrator to begin with. And as for Harris, far from being Vice-President, she'll likely end up with some random role like Deputy Secretary of Veterans Affairs or something, if even that.
Basically, the mutual sentiment here appears to be this: to the victor go the spoils.


Regarding other cabinet stuff though, I think I'm going to reward Adams for his endorsement (though it seems to have actually hurt more than it helped with a lot of voters...) by making him HUD Secretary.
