With a Winter full of jockeying for campaign position behind everyone, the 2024 Presidential Campaign begins in earnest as May dawns.

On the Republican side, former President Donald Trump faces Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Vermont Governor Phil Scott. Trump holds the lead, but combined, DeSantis Scott outpoll him nationally, and in key primary states, showing that the Republican Party is starting to move on from the controversial Trump years.

On the Democratic side, Vice President Kamala Harris is the nominal frontrunner, but she faces several challengers. Two stand out at this early date. New York Governor Kathy Hochul, who survived a scandal involving her handpicked Lieutenant Governor to easily defeat Lee Zeldin, and Senator Tammy Baldwin, who is the lone progressive running. Also in the race is North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper, who is expected to compete with Harris in the South, especially in South Carolina.

General Election

Generic R 46%
Generic D 45%

The 2023 Off-Year elections are in full swing. In Mississippi, the incumbent Tate Reeves will face Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley, in what is seen as a likely hold for the Republicans.

For the two Democratic held Governor's mansions in Louisiana and Kentucky, Democrats face a difficult road to holding both. In Louisiana, where the incumbent, John Bel Edwards in term-limited, Democrats have rallied around former New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu. However three strong Republicans are running, in Attorney General Jeff Landry, Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser and former Lieutenant Governor Jay Dardenne.

In Kentucky, the incumbent, Andy Beshear may have dodged a bullet when Attorney General Daniel Cameron declined to run, but he will face Auditor Mike Harmon in the general election in a deeply Republican state.  


Mississippi Governor

Tate Reeves (R) 55%
Brandon Presley (D) 36%

Louisiana Governor

Jeff Landry (R) 31%

Billy Nungesser (R) 24%
Jay Dardenne (R) 13%

Kentucky-Governor

Mike Harmon (R) 48%
Andy Beshear (D) 47%

News

This turn will take place from May 1, 2023 until May 29, 2023. There are no debates this turn (at least that I am moderating, though you may challenge each other to debates and I will be more than willing to moderate them). You are required to post either a schedule or some other method of explaining what your candidate is doing.

Good luck.

May 1st-29th (12 events)

May 2nd: Ron DeSantis organizes a major rally in Miami to kick off his campaign. He invites Matt Gaetz, Ronna McDaniel, and William Barr. DeSantis touches on the major culture war issues, attacks Joe Biden and the Democratic Party, and reveals his intentions for running against Donald Trump. Excerpts from the speech are found below.

Donald Trump created a political revolution, and I have great admiration and respect for his achievements for this country. The sad truth, however, is that since 2020 he has surrounded himself with swamp people who are giving him terrible advice. It was these RINO advisors that duped Trump into endorsing Dr. Oz in 2022, who blew an easily winnable senate race in a red tsunami year. It was these same advisors who tricked him into betraying America First conservative Mo Brooks, and other good patriotic Republicans. We cannot afford to lose any more elections, because Joe Biden is hell bent on destroying this country with his policies. I’m running against Donald Trump because he’s lost his way, and I believe we need a different candidate to ensure a strong Republican governing majority this November! Ladies and gentlemen, without further ado I am announcing my campaign to be the next Republican President of the United States. And let me tell you folks: we won’t just Make America Great Again, we will Make America Florida!


May 3rd: Ron DeSantis barnstorms in Iowa, meeting voters and building a local campaign infrastructure. He also meets with Mariannette Miller-Meeks for an endorsement.

May 5th: Ron DeSantis heads over to New Hampshire to meet with Chris Sununu, and request his endorsement as well.

May 7th: Ron DeSantis spends some of the millions he had stockpiled from his landslide governor election win on advertising in Iowa portraying him as a family man and strong leader for conservative values.

May 10th: Ron DeSantis runs ad campaigns across South Carolina touting his Parental Education Rights bill, billing himself as the defender of the rights of American parents.

May 12th: Ron DeSantis courts the anti-vaxxer vote in Nevada, sending out push-polls asking voters: “If you knew that Donald Trump took the Biden vaccine and wants you to take it too, would that make you more or less likely to vote for him in November?”

May 13th: Ron DeSantis announces at a campaign rally in Iowa that “not a single dime of taxpayer money will go to Planned Parenthood under my administration, and we will shut their clinics down state by state!” (Assuming Roe is dead by now in this timeline.)

May 19th: Ron DeSantis attends a CPAC conference in Budapest, with Viktor Orban as the keynote speaker. DeSantis praises Orban for his standing up for border security and culturally conservative values.

May 23rd: Ron DeSantis meets with Glenn Youngkin for an endorsement, and praises his strong conservative record as opposed to other blue state republicans.

May 24th: Ron DeSantis meets with Ted Cruz to request an endorsement, privately bringing up Trump’s electability issues, his past blunders in meddling with the midterms, and his insufficient conservatism on a variety of issues.

May 25th: Ron DeSantis meets with Ken Griffin and Peter Thiel to request their financial support, mentioning his better prospects of winning in November and promising a big fat tax cut.

May 28th: Ron DeSantis does some more campaigning in New Hampshire, running ads promising lower gas prices and an end to rampant inflation.

Phil Scott 2024

Phill Scott has kicked off a 2024 Presidential campaign with a tour of New Hampshire. Giving speeches, holding town halls, and meeting voters. The big news was from his launch rally, when Condeleeza Rice took to the stage to issue her endorsement of Scott.
On May 24th, Governor Scott held a rally in New Hampshire where former Maryland governor Larry Hogan spoke, issuing an endorsement of Scott and calling for change.

Governor Scott said “it’s time for republicans to come together, and move past Trump. I want to run an all encompassing campaign, targeted at unity, and coming up with solutions rather than division. Please, join me as we fight for unity and change.”

COOPER GIVES SPEECH IN CHARLESTON (May 1); EXCERPTS BELOW


On the bathroom ban bill and more: "Look, I feel like the Republicans should stop fixating, and targeting, trans children and gay children. It's hypocritical that the party of small government also wants government to interfere and stop gay and trans kids from being themselves. The Republicans in North Carolina, and Governor McCrory, they signed a transphobic bathroom ban bill that targeted a marginalized group that comprises under 1% of the state population. Why is this? Well, one big reason is that they are hostile towards the LGBTQ+ population of our nation. Another is that they don't have solutions on important problems like the economy, gun violence, and climate change. To deflect attention, they try to divide us with wedge issues. And in North Carolina, this had disastrous consequences. Companies boycotted us for the shameful, bigoted bill the Republican state legislature passed and Governor McCrory signed. I ran back in 2016 promising to repeal this divisive bill that does no good, and to work to tackling real problems with real, workable solutions. The people of North Carolina elected me. And since then, I have done everything in my power to help our state. I got the bathroom bill repealed and my administration, over the past several years, has gotten that and so many other problems fixed. We worked on expanding Medicaid in North Carolina so that every North Carolinian has access to dencent, afforable healthcare and doesn't die at the hands of Big Pharma. I passed common sense COVID restrictions to curb the spread of disease, and it worked. I did all of this with a Republican legislature hell-bent on stopping me at every turn. I tell you this because today, I see our country has great potential to do good. But I see also that if we make the wrong decisions next year, and if a Republican Trifecta is elected, we might see many of the same problems confronting North Carolina back during the McCrory administration on a national level. We are running against Donald Trump, a man who tried to overturn democracy when he lost, a man whose party, rather than disavow him, actually aided and abetted him in supporting a violent insurrection. We are running against Ron DeSantis, a man who has passed hateful legislation against gay children and who has fired state government employees who encouraged getting the vaccine. We cannot afford to have these men lead our country and drive it into the ground. We cannot afford to turn around the progress we have achieved under the Biden presidency. If our interest is in making the uber-rich pay their fair share, in curbing gun violence with common sense background checks, in protecting our environment by transititioning to green energy, if our interest is in electing someone who can get all that done even with a hostile Congress, we need to be careful in selecting the right candidate. We need to make sure our great Democratic Party nominates the candidate who can win, who has a record of winning and getting things done. We need somebody who knows how to get moderate Blue Dogs and progressives together, so that we can make accomplishments for the betterment of America. That is why I am running. I am running because I am THAT candidate, because I am the one who has, can and will move us in the right direction. I am the one who can defeat Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis and make sure neither man ever gets to become president. I am the one who can and will advance a pragmatic, liberal agenda. And in that spirit, I am running for president."

As an outsider: "You know, unlike Kamala Harris, I'm not a Washington dealer. I'm not a wheeler-dealer owned by the corporate interests. The only people who I listen to are my constitunts. Never have I and never will I cave to or bow to Big Pharma or the big corporations. I will bow only to the will of the people, for in this country, it is the people who elect our officials, not big companies, and it is time that all of us get from our elected officials the representation we deserve, the results we deserve. To that end, I intend to have my campaign be a GRASSROOTS CAMPAIGN fueled by the people, for the people, and of the people, and when I'm president I'll make sure we get the campaign finance reform we desperately need so that the lobbyists and oil executives and organizations do not dicate the vote of our senators any longer. That is something Kamala Harris would never do, for she is just another Washington insider who has grown accustomed to serving her donors and not the American people. But I won't stand for it and I will never stand for it."

On Harris' comments: "Kamala Harris says I am insufficiently liberal. I am by no means insufficiently liberal. Rather, I am a pragmatic liberal who can get things done. It's an important quality to be able to compromise, to be able to meet your adversary halfway, to get things done and achieve progress even if you're up against a Republican legislature. I've done just that in North Carolina. Sometimes, the North Carolina legislature, controlled by Republicans, has stopped me, but I have never not gotten things done for a lack of effort or drive. It's good to be liberal, but it's also good to get things done and do more than just virtue signal. It's good to be a workhorse and not a showhorse, to have substance as well as style, to give back to the people who elect us. Just because Kamala Harris has achieved little does not mean that those who do are 'insufficiently liberal'. Getting stuff done is a concept Kamala Harris is unfamiliar with, but which I am quite familiar with."

Other (attacking Harris): "We need someone who can win and has won in purple states, not somebody who's got underwatever approvals and alienates Americans at every turn."

May 2 Charlotte fundraiser: Meets with donors and highlights his liberal record as NC governor

May 7-8 Campaigning with Landrieu: "It is with great pride today that I'm endorsing the absolutely terrific Mitch Landrieu for governor! Mitch will work effectively for all Louisianans, of all races, religions and genders, and of all political persuasions! I know that Mitch will be a great governor for all of Louisiana!"

May 9 Town Hall In Anderson: Answers questions on economic issues and foreign policy

May 10 Rally+ Fundraiser in Greenville: Touts endorsement of State Senator Karl Allen: "Senator Allen has done much good for the people of Greenville, and I'm honoured to have his endorsement. I promise that when I'm president, I'm going to build a good future for all of Greenville's children, for all of South Carolina's children, for all of America's children, white or nonwhite, male or female, rich or poor - I'm going to build the sort of future for all of us that Senator Allen has worked towards here in the State Senate."

May 11 Rally in Spartanburg: Says of the GOP tax policy, "You know, what George W Bush and what Donald Trump have done is that they've given tax breaks, but only to the rich. Whether you're looking at Bush's 2001 tax cut or Trump's 2017 tax cut, both of them were really only helpful to the rich. And at whose expense? At the expense of the hardworking, lower- and middle-class Americans of this country. So when they tell you they're for tax cuts, what they mean is, they're for tax cuts for the rich. Not for tax cuts for you. They aren't for tax cuts for you. They aren't for tax cuts for you, and they're also against Medicaid. What they want is low taxes for the rich, and high taxes on the middle- and lower-classes. Good healthcare for the rich, and bad healthcare for the middle- and lower-classes. Well, let me tell you that when I'm president, I'm going to turn things around by expanding Medicaid and giving decent-quality healthcare to those who need it, and I'm going to turn things around by reversing the Trump tax cuts for the rich and making them pay their fair share. Because the Biden administration has worked towards this, but there's still a long way to go till we have the healthcare we deserve and the rich are paying all the taxes they should be. I'm going to increase Medicaid and taxes on the rich, and I'm going to finally close all the tax loopholes that the rich exploit."

May 19 Meeting with Potential Atlanta Donors: "Look, North Carolina is a Trump state. It's purple, it's a pinkish state. And you know, despite that, I've won here twice, and the second time around, by a pretty decent margin. I outperformed Joe Biden by nearly 6 points. Now look at Harris. She's got underwater approvals and alienates moderates at pretty much all turns. Don't get me wrong - her policies are all right. But we need someone who can win. Harris' only experience at winning races in her own right is in San Francisco and California - which are both safe blue states. At a national level, I honestly think if we see Harris get nominated, we might end up with another Trump presidency or a President DeSantis. I don't think Kamala Harris could hold Georgia, I don't think she could hold Wisconsin, and I think we could end up with a repeat of 2016 unless we make the right choice. We need to make sure we nominate someone who can keep the White House in safe hands first and foremost. I can promise you that I'm better suited for that than Kamala Harris is, and the reason I'm asking for your donation today is so that I can spread that message among Democrats, so that we can make sure we don't choose somebody unelectable."

May 22 Meeting with Potential Fairfax Donors: Uses 2021 Virginia governor election as example of Democrats underperforming (contrasts with his own overperformance in 2020). Stresses that the same will happen if Harris is nominated and that Donald Trump will win the nomination.

May 23 Fundraiser in Baltimore: Speaks about racial justice and BLM

May 24 Fundraiser in Philadelphia: Says he can win Pennsylvania and Harris can't

May 26 Fundraiser in Chicago: Discusses how "Republicans are stopping children from learning"

May 27 Fundraiser in Memphis: Speaks about racial justice and BLM, talks about MLK and how his "dream has still yet to be fullfilled"; attacks Harris for 'tough on crime' comment - ""Tough on crime" are the words Richard Nixon, are the words George Wallace have used. What Kamala Harris is saying could not be clearer. She has no interest in reforming the police and every interest in arresting and prosecuting teenagers, disproportionately African-American, for first-time marijuana offenses, just like she did as DA in San Francisco."

May 28 Fundraiser in New Orleans: Lets slip Mitch Landrieu's endorsement and promises that he will win the election and will persue a solid liberal agenda and will shift SCOTUS in a more liberal direction

May 29-30 Campaigning with Landrieu: Landrieu publicly reveals his endorsement

Announcement and Early Campaign


211111-Z-A3538-0019 by New York National Guard, on Flickr

Announcement in Buffalo with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand Representatives Ritchie Torres and Sean Patrick Maloney and former State Representative Alessandra Biaggi

“I never thought elected office was for me. I was born in a trailer park near a steel mill, my family was poor and only made it out when my dad put himself through college and got a job in IT. By that time I was away at college. A good education saved my family, and it taught me about organizing. In college, I helped organize a boycott over the bookstore raising prices, and worked with my classmates to lobby our university to divest from South Africa during apartheid. This taste of organizing and politics made me think I could do some good working for someone, maybe I could be a chief of staff. While working in New York politics I noticed something happening in my hometown. Walmart and other big superstores were coming in and killing the small businesses that had thrived there, pushing wages down while shuttering the doors to countless mom and pops that couldn’t compete.

So I did what I could, I got together with my mom and her business partner and put together a committee whose goal was to remind people to shop local, show up to town meetings to voice our concerns about these big-box developments, and make sure our voices were heard. After that, I realized the benefit of having a seat at the table. This idea that organizing can make government functional, more efficient, and accountable has stuck with me as I ran for and won a seat in the House, Lieutenant Governor, and now your Governor.

It’s that same goal, that government work for the people who fund it, that has me here today. I’m here to announce I’m running for President. America needs a leader who is committed to getting results, not just bandying about talking points. I am running for President to keep the promise to the American people to deliver infrastructure, paid leave, and finally deliver a public option for healthcare. I hope you’ll join me!”

Themes:
[/b]
Unions: K grew up in a union household, unions protect American workers, we need a union-friendly President
Economy and jobs: got NY back to work, supported $15 min wage in NY, needs to be raised nationally
Infrastructure: failed our promise to invest in infrastructure, need green investments in places like upstate NY, universal broadband, update roads and bridges
Healthcare: public option to expand healthcare access, universal coverage, don’t take away private insurance, let Americans have a choice
Social issues: pro-choice, pro-LGBTQ rights, pass Equality Act, codify Roe, only appoint Supreme Court justices that agree, pass the ERA
Taxes: billionaire tax, wealthy should pay their fair share to pay for public works, repeal Trump-era tax cuts, replace them with a cut for middle class and poor
Education: free college tuition for middle-class families, making sure students are able to get the education required to be competitive in the workforce
Families: paid family leave is a first priority
Government reform: ban stock trading for congress, no one should get rich on insider knowledge, make releasing tax returns a requirement for running for President, make gov work for people, extra accountability for executive offices

“I think people conflate progressivism with some pie in the sky list of dreams without any substance. My time as Governor has proven that’s not true. Progressivism at its best is pragmatic. We ask, ‘how do we get to universal healthcare?’ and work the problem from there. It’s the reason I see no excuse for us not to chip in to be sure students can go to college regardless of their parent's income. My family would probably still be poor if not for the education my father received. It let me go to school, let my mother start a business, and for my family to live comfortably. That’s a dream that should be realized by every single American student.”

Upstate tour from Rock Hill to Anderson, Hochul meets with small business owners and locals about the impact of fulfilling promises on infrastructure and healthcare

Round table with New Hampshire Democratic women with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, seen as outreach to Senator Jeanne Shaheen in an attempt to court a future endorsement
Rally in Concord, line from the speech becomes rallying cry and slogan for the campaign

“There’s no reason practicality should be missing from politics. Progressivism can be practical, populism can be practical. The grassroots is where any political movement sprouts from. We don’t get universal healthcare by dreaming. We don’t get $15 minimum wage by dreaming. We organize, we work, we win. Governing is hard work, but we can deliver on our promises, solve our nation’s problems, and move past the ugliness that has defined us for over eight years.”

“Pragmatic. Populist. Progressive.” Ad runs online and in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina following the speech. It highlights her support of the ACA while in Congress, a $15 minimum wage while Lieutenant Governor, beating off a primary challenge from the center, and her work to make college free for low and middle income students in New York.

Trump campaign announcement speech in Manchester, New Hampshire

Quote
Joe Biden is a failed president. When I was president, we passed Glorius Tax Cuts, protected our borders, defended American values, and helped get America through a global pandemic. We got America back to work, not once but twice, no matter how much Obama or Creepy Joe want to take credit for my achievements. Creepy Joe would rather sniff young girls' hair and keep prices high than getting Americans working on the Great Keystone Pipeline. Creepy Joe wants us to depend on Socialist countries like Venezuela than rely on American enterprise. Not only that but he is doing the bidding of Horrible Kamala and her family business. Together, we will Drain the Swamp and Save America!

May 11th: Kamala Harris conducts a fundraising dinner with Democratic Donors in Arlington.

May 13th: Kamala Harris rallies in Des Moines.
"People claim Iowa is out of reach for Democrats nowadays. However, they also said Georgia, and Arizona, and Colorado were out of contention for Democrats not that long ago. And to point out an example from the other side, people claimed Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania were out of contention for the GOP, though we have learned the faulty reasoning of that claim the hard way seven years ago. My point is that Iowa is still a bellwether. Iowans still care for the Government not hanging them out dry, providing necessary support for key infrastructure and agricultural programs."

May 14th: Kamala Harris travels to Cedar Rapids and conducts a town hall with local voters.

May 15th: Kamala Harris travels to farms all across the state of Iowa, meeting with agricultural union members and local Democratic Leaders.

May 17th: Kamala Harris travels to New Hampshire to meet with and court the endorsements of Maggie Hassan and Bill Shaheen.

May 18th: Kamala Harris rallies in Nashua.
"As many of you have heard recently, Roy Cooper has viciously attacked me for being elitist and out-of-touch. That could be further from the truth. I have worked around the clock as Vice President fighting to help the American people with better Healthcare, Welfare expansions, union rights, helping out the needy in society, etc. But we have also fought for the rights of Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, LGBT+, disabled, etc. I will also continue to bring us out of the horrors of the Trump Presidency, and I don't think Roy Cooper, Kathy Hochul, or Tammy Baldwin have the neccassarry leadership or experience credentials to deal with the problems of our country". That's why New Hampshire stalwarts such as Maggie Hassan and Bill Shaheen are seriously considering endorsing our wonderful campaign."

May 19th: Kamala Harris conducts a grassroots fundraiser in Portsmouth with Harris supporters.

May 21: Kamala Harris launches television ads in Iowa, citing her experience as VP, as well as calling for more funding to infrastructure and workers rights.

May 23: Kamala Harris travels to Las Vegas, courting the support and endorsement of Catherine Cortez-Masto.

May 24th: Kamala Harris conducts a fundraising luncheon with Democratic Donors and Culinary Union Members in Paradise.

May 26th: Kamala Harris rallies in Las Vegas.
"As Vice President, I have oversaw legislation and policy meant to fight for and protect the rights of unions here in Las Vegas. Sadly, however, many Republicans have tried for decades now to strip away the power of unions in favor of the wealthy and the elite. But to our great union laborers, I promise you that I will keep fighting! I will do everything in my power to not let the rights and protections Labor Unions have fought for more than a hundred years ago and counting. Catherine Cortez-Masto, our country's first Latina Senator, has considered to support our campaign(Note: She hasn't endorsed Kamala, yet, officially). She and her father are famous here for fighting for unions. I hope Nevadians will do the same."

May 27th: Kamala Harris conducts a town hall in Reno with local voters.

May 28th: Kamala Harris launches television ads in New Hampshire centering around her support for abortion and LGBT+ rights.

May 29th: Kamala Harris launches television ads in Nevada, centering around her support for Labor Unions, expanding welfare, and bringing the nation together from deep partisanship.

Kathy Hochul Responds to Kamala Harris's Remarks at a Townhall in New Hampshire

"You know, I think it's a shame when someone would rather attack another candidate's experience than run on their own ideas. If any candidate would like to go head to head based on resumes or experience, I'll gladly take them on. As Governor I got New York back to work, invested in education and infrastructure, and cut taxes for the middle class. And while I was in Congress protecting the ACA from Republican attacks, Kamala Harris was fighting against federal supervision for prison conditions the Supreme Court called 'cruel and unusual.' That's not the kind of leadership our country needs."

Additional endorsements by the end of May:

Governor Janet Mills
Governor Phil Murphy

Baldwin 2024[/b

Schedule for May 2023

May 1
-Announce candidacy in Madison, Wisconsin. Emphasise progressive credentials, such as support for Medicare for All, and announce support for an Independent Commission Against Corruption to root out corruption in government

Quote
I didn't grow up with much. My mother was 19; I had to be looked after by my grandparents because she was struggling with her mental health.

I came out of those struggles stronger for it. I got to where I am through sheer force of will.

But I also came from a time where hard work and dedication actually meant something. A time when they got you ahead. Now what do we have? A world where the top 1% get away with everything they like. Their taxes are cut endlessly, and they keep that wealth to themselves. How do they keep that wealth? By exploiting their workers and laying waste to our environment. We've all heard the stories about Amazon.

But our country has risen to challenges befre, and will do so again! In 1932, Franklin Roosevelt declared that America needed a new deal, and we need another new deal now! Workers must be paid a fair wage, healthcare must be available to all, and government corruption must be destroyed!

Today, I am announcing my cnadidacy for President of the United States!

A better future is possible, and we can create it together!

Key campaign issues:

-Creation of an Independent Commission Against Corruption. Lobbyists and the wealthy influence members of government without penalty, and insider trading is ocurring regardless of attepts to stamp it out. This must end.

-Medicare for All. It is part time we had universal health coverage, and a public option will not erase the structural problems our healthcare system faces. Private inusrance must be for supplemental, not essential services.

-Reviving unions. They have been needlessly damaged since the signing of the Taft-Hartley Act, and their downturn has damaged the middle and working classes. Unionisation should be encouraged, and the NLRB should be overhauled.

-Infrastructure. More needs to be done, and we must look to the future. High-speed rail, low-emissions technology, internet connectivity, as well as traditional transportation infrastructure. This will also drive job creation and higher wages.

-Education. High education standards will provide a more skilled and diverse workforce. Invest in vocational training, colleges, and schools across the country. In particular, rural and inner-city facilities have been left behind at every level, and they need urgent reform. Don't simply throw money at problems-that solves nothing. End nationwide standardised testing; this is proven not to help in educational development.

May 2
-Strategy meeting in Wisconsin. Run as a progressive who can work with established politicians. Look to younger and working class voters of all stripes as key support bloc.
-Evening Rally in Des Moines, Iowa. Highlight support for an ICAC.

May 3-7
-Campaign through central Iowa. Build up volunteer network, open camapign offices, prepare local campaigns and so on. Focus on doorknocking and GOTV efforts for the caucus. Establish local donor network

May 8
-Rally in Iowa City, Iowa. Hit ICAC notes again. Rally supporters with economic message as well: higher taxes on the wealthy, middle and working class tax cuts, investment into renewable energy.

-Town hall in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Take questions on corruption commission, economic plan, healthcare. Lean into populism as much as possible. Also highlight that Baldwin is from Wisconsin, a must-win state in every election


May 9
-YouTube town hall. Baldwin will likely be outdone on TV by the three other candidates, but like most progressive candidates, will undoubtedly fare better online. Invite voters to send in questions on anything they wish. Also take the chance to make a major policy announcement: Repeal of Taft-Hartley.
-Rally in Davenport, Iowa. Usual notes on ICAC, economy and healthcare. Again, lean into populism. Baldwin is the only candidate from the industrial

May 10
-Fundraiser in Sioux City, Iowa. Play up humble background, particularly struggles when she was young. Born to a struggling teenaged single mother, raised largely by her grandparents, and managed to rise to the Senate through sheer determination

May 11-15
-Return to Washington DC for Senate duties.

May 17-21
-Campaign in New Hampshire. Emphasise ICAC and fighting government corruption above all else. Everyone likes transparency in government, and are bound to support someone promising to fight it at all corners.

May 22
-Town hall at Nashua Community College. Baldwin's base is likely with college students, so look to nail it down at every opportunity. Spruik education plan: improve curriculum and facilities in inner-city and rural schools, invest in establishment of high-speed internet across all educational facilities.
-Interview with DailyKos

Quote
Interviewer: How do yu respondt to Kamala Harris saying she's not certain that you have the necessary experience to deal with the issues the country faces?

Baldwin: Experience is important, of course, and I think my time in the House and Senate has left me more than ready for the job of President, but this is about more than how many jobs appear on a resume. I'd rather talk about plans for the future, like Mediare for All, repeal of Taft-Hartley, investment in rural and inner-city schools and colleges, and an Independent Commission against Corruption.

May 23
-Rally in Manchester, New Hampshire. Declare infrastructure plan as well. Titled 'Rebuild America', the plan calls for trillions of dollars in spending on roads, ports, airports, and above all, high-speed rail. Energy infrastructure will be a key part of the stump speech; New Hampshire has been a national leader in renewable energy, and with renewables now cheaper than fossil fuels, America stands to make trillions from it.

May 25-29
-Senate duties in Washington DC. Propose ICAC bill now; this cannot wait any longer.
Quote
I Stand today to introduce the Stop Government Corruption Now Act. Corruption in government, whether it involves taking money from lobbyists, SuperPACS, or other vested interests is why this nation no longer trusts Congress to work for them.

This bill will:

-Ban members of Congress from having contact with lobbyists
-Restrict donation amounts to PACS and SuperPACs
-Tighten conflict of interest laws
-Ban stock trading for members of Congress
-Establish an Independent Commission Against Corruption. Five commissioners appointed must be politically independent, and serve staggered ten-year terms to insulate them from political interference

Memorial Day 2023. As Americans solemnly remember those lost in American wars, the Presidential candidates have begun their campaigns, with some doing better than others.

Republicans

Donald Trump may have announced his campaign, but other than that he was relatively quiet on the campaign trail. This may be by design, as a quiet Trump is a Trump that doesn't offend other candidates, the press, or anyone else. Ron DeSantis has been busy, aiming his attacks at Trump's advisors whom he called RINO's and has gained the most this month, while Phil Scott has burnished his general election credentials of bipartisanship, but this may not be what Republican Primary voters want to hear.

Republicans-National

Donald Trump 33%
Ron DeSantis 27%
Phil Scott 14%

Republicans-Iowa

Donald Trump 35%
Ron DeSantis 29%
Phil Scott 9%

Republicans-New Hampshire

Donald Trump 26%
Ron DeSantis 24%
Phil Scott 18%

Republicans-Nevada

Donald Trump 30%
Ron DeSantis 25%
Phil Scott 10%

Republicans-South Carolina

Donald Trump 27%
Ron DeSantis 27%
Phil Scott 8%

Republicans-Louisiana

Donald Trump 28%
Ron DeSantis 26%
Phil Scott 9%

Democrats

While the primary has been dominated so far by the attacks being slung between Kamala Harris, Roy Cooper, Kathy Hochul and Tammy Baldwin on experience and progressive credentials, and the attacks have most heavily damaged Harris, who, along with Baldwin is being hurt by the impending entry of Elizabeth Warren. Warren, whose 2020 run ended on Super Tuesday is the second progressive candidate to enter the race. Her entry touches off a crowded Senate primary in Massachusetts, with former Representative Joe Kennedy III, and Representative Ayanna Pressley the current frontrunners.

Democrats-National

Kamala Harris 24%
Elizabeth Warren 24%
Kathy Hochul 17%
Tammy Baldwin 17%
Roy Cooper 13%

Democrats-Iowa

Tammy Baldwin 22%
Elizabeth Warren 21%
Kamala Harris 21%
Kathy Hochul 18%
Roy Cooper 14%

Democrats-New Hampshire

Kamala Harris 30%
Elizabeth Warren 26%
Kathy Hochul 19%
Tammy Baldwin 15%
Roy Cooper 7%

Democrats-Nevada

Kamala Harris 29%
Elizabeth Warren 21%
Kathy Hochul 16%
Tammy Baldwin 16%
Roy Cooper 12%

Democrats-South Carolina

Roy Cooper 21%
Kamala Harris 18%
Elizabeth Warren 15%

Democratic Primary Debate


Good Evening, I'm Fareed Zakaria, and welcome to tonight's Democratic Presidential Primary debate. At this time, I'd like to go over the rules of the debate. All candidates will have the opportunity to respond to questions from me, and to respond to what the others say. There will be questions directed at individual candidates, and questions directed at the entire field.

To Harris: Your approval ratings with Independent voters currently leave you as the most unpopular Vice President since Dick Cheney. How do you plan to rectify that if you wish to win a general election?

To Harris, Hochul, Warren and Baldwin: Each of you has a chance to become the first female President. Explain why you would be the best person to earn that lofty status.

To Warren and Baldwin: If you cannot get Medicare for All passed, would you support a compromise plan like a public option?

To Baldwin: You would be the first LGBT President. Do you believe America is ready for an LGBT President?

To Warren and Baldwin: What do you say to those in the Democratic Party who believe your Presidential candidacies are putting your Party's Senate majority at risk?

To Cooper and Hochul: Would you support Medicare for All?

To Hochul: Your First Lieutenant Governor was forced to resign after being caught in a corruption scandal. How can voters trust your judgement as President?

To Cooper: How would you approach negotiations with states with Iran or North Korea?

To All: If you could unilaterally amend the constitution once, what amendment would you add?

To All: New Orleans is considered one of the most at-risk cities for climate change in the world. Tell me what your climate plan does to protect New Orleans.

To All: Would you commit the United States military to defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion?

To Cooper and Hochul: Would you support Medicare for All?

Cooper: "Frankly, Fareed, we have a healthcare problem. Premiums and prices of prescription drugs are going through the roof, people with preexisting conditions get jacked up prices, and we have a lot of people denied healthcare because they simply cannot afford the high prices. Now, Obamacare was certainly a big step in the right direction, and when the Republicans tried to get rid of it and replace it with nothing - and leave the 20 million people Obamacare ensured out in the cold - I was horrified. Because I think more people should have healthcare, not less, and as governor in North Carolina, I've expanded Medicaid. But now as to Medicare for All, I'm going to say this. I principally do not disagree with Medicare for All in theory. But here's the thing. This would require passage in Congress. And even with Democratic majorities, if we're able to get them back this year, which we will if I'm the nominee, there probably will just not be enough votes to get this to pass. It's a sad truth. But I am not a quitter, and getting everybody good insurance is a noble goal and one we should most certainly strive towards, one a Cooper Administration most certainly will strive towards. Yes, getting from where we are now to Medicare for All will not happen in one step. But I have a series of steps so that we can gradually get there. We'll expand Medicare and insurance until we've reached the point at which something like Medicare for All is feasible. Any candidate who promises you they can get Medicare for All immediately is either lying or doesn't understand the reality of the situation. I can promise you progress, and I will say that if we don't get Medicare for All within my first term, we will certainly have moved a very great deal towards getting it in my next."

Kathy Hochul Schedule May 30-June 14th

Source

May 30-31st: Nevada

Fly to Las Vegas
Townhall with Culinary Workers Union members in Las Vegas, courting their endorsement

“My family owes our success to organized labor. But for too long we’ve let corporations and their interests chip away at the strength of unions. we’ve let republicans name anti-labor policies as “right to work,” and we’ve let corporatist Democrats take on the mantle of “reasonable,” while working against labor interests. I think it’s ridiculous that you have to be far left to be pro-labor or that to be a pragmatic leader you have to bow to corporate interests. As President I won’t cross that picket line nor will I take away your health insurance. I am running for the workers who are fighting for wage increases, safe conditions, and a robust health insurance policy.”

Meet with Senator Jacky Rosen in Henderson, viewed as courting her vote
Travel to Reno
Speak at University of Nevada, Reno, talk about plans to make college tuition free for low and middle income students

June 1-3rd: Iowa

Fly to Sioux City

Rally in Sioux City
“Democrats often write off places like right here in Sioux City, or my hometown Hamburg. But in 2011, during a GOP wave cycle, I won. The secret is not backing down from your beliefs, not selling out. I’m not an extreme person, I like practical, realistic solutions, but what I don’t like is when Democrats accept GOP talking points. Guess what, voters don’t either. It’s why I stayed committed to protecting the right to choose in a heavily Republican House seat, it’s why I voted to protect the ACA and opposed new trade deals that would hurt both communities like mine back home and ones like yours right here.”

Town halls in Le Mars, Ida Grove, and West Bend
Town halls in Fort Dodge and Webster City

To All: Would you commit the United States military to defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion?

Cooper: "This is an important question, Fareed. We need look no further than than the recent past, President Biden's handling of another similar crisis from a few years back, when Russia invaded Ukraine, for the answer. What did we do? We did not send troops in to Ukraine. However, we aided the effort by sending arms, by sanctioning Russia, by taking in refugees. We did this, and most of the rest of the world joined us in doing this and in isolating Russia. And ultimately, there was a lot of bloodshed and a lot of lives lost, but Russia backed off and Ukraine is still a free and sovreign. If China was to invade Taiwan, I would absolutely and unequivocally oppose committing troops there in advance. That should always be not the first, but indeed the last, resort. If I was president and China were to invade Taiwan, well, I'd first want to persue diplomatic channels and see if we can avoid any bloodshed. If China were to then not listen to us, America - and I'm sure many other countries would join us - would sanction China. We would not trade with it and we would isolate it. We would send arms and supplies to the Taiwanese fighters. And if, after all those steps, China still was occupying Taiwan, then yes, I would then most likely call for the deployment of American troops. But only then. Because I want to make it very clear: I have not and will never take sending in our troops lightly. It is a very serious move and it should be used only as a last resort and where necessary. I know I hope that China does not invade Taiwan, that if it does we will be able to thwart it without having to come to that."

To All: If you could unilaterally amend the constitution once, what amendment would you add?


Cooper: "Well, Fareed, this is a tough question to answer for a lot of people, but I think for me the answer is fairly clear. Most of the progress and changes we need - action to address climate change, gun control, building up infrastructure, healthcare for more people, affordable higher education - all of these can be addressed, really, by simply passing a law through Congress. Not that it'd be easy, but it's possible if we have the majorities we need and we have the determination to persue those goals - which I can honestly say I do. But you know the important change that we could only implement with a constitutional amendment? Abolishing the electoral college. We need a national popular vote. The arguments against the electoral college are abundant and many of us are familiar with them already, but to put it succintly - it is redundant and very often antimajoritarian. I mean, in the past quarter-century, it's happened twice that one candidate wins the popular vote and the other becomes president through winning the electoral college. Incidentally, both times, it was a Democrat who won the popular vote. The electoral college is unfair, period. And besides, it is slanted against the Democratic Party nowadays. Earlier it was that it had no obvious bias, but today, it actually helps the Republican Party. It has in the two most recent presidential races. 2016, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by more than two percentage points and lost the electoral college. 2020, Joe Biden won the popular vote by 4 and a half percentage points. And yes, he won the electoral college. But in fact, had the Republicans done just slightly better, had they done even just seven-tenths of a percentage point better in every state? There'd have been an electoral college tie, and it'd go to the House of Representatives. In the House, however, every state gets one vote. Yes, you heard that correct. California, with 53 representatives and over 45 Democrats, would ultimately have the same voting power as Wyoming, with one representative. Guess who this favours - the Republicans. And had this happened in 2020, most experts on the subject agree that Donald Trump would have won. Donald Trump would have utlimately won the presidency despite losing the popular vote by close to 4 percentage points! And all the progress we have had in the Biden presidency would not have happened - instead, we'd get more tax breaks for the rich and no action to tackle gun violence or climate change. This is important for two reasons. It shows how flawed the Electoral College is and why we must remove it, and secondly, it reveals just how close we came to a second Trump term. Joe Biden was a good candidate, and even he just barely beat Donald Trump. So unless we want Donald Trump to win the White House in 2024, we need to nominate a candidate just as strong as President Biden. Clearly, that's not VP Harris, whose approvals have consistently been and currently are several points below Joe Biden's. It's also not Kathy Hochul, who, as much as I respect her, has only experience winning in a deep blue city and a deep blue state. I'm the oone who actually did better in North Carolina by a full 6 points than Joe Biden. I'm not saying I'll outrun him by 6 points on the national stage, but I think it's evident I am just as electable as Joe Biden and just as capable of beating Donald Trump. This is not something Kamala Harris can say. This is not something that Kathy Hochul can say. We cannot take the risk of a second Donald Trump presidency. If and when the electoral college is abolished, then we don't need to worry quite as much about electability. We've won the popular vote in every presidential election but one in the past 35 years. But as long as the electoral college is around and continues giving the GOP a slight boost at the presidential level, we need to nominate strong candidates who have both liberal credentials and a record of winning tough races, and doing well."
