    Senator March Madness Round 3

    So apparently this process is just a “pick the top democratic senator” thread. I picked a lot of Senators I don’t agree with (or even like in some cases) I focused on who I thought was most effective Clearly that’s not what’s going on here No biggie but you don’t need my input for this Have at it boys I done in this one.

    Rand Paul Campaigns in Raymond, New Hampshire Sen. Paul spoke in Raymond, NH where he spoke about his electability. "If you look at the Republican field, there is only one option if you want a Conservative who can win. That would be this campaign. The coalition that I am building is the only one with a shot to beat the Democrats in November. Dick Cheney would get steamrolled by whoever he faces. His record is terrible for people on the left and on the right. It would be a historic loss for the Republican Party if he is nominated. Sen. Manchin would also lose badly. Conservatives are not going to be motivated to volunteer for his campaign, to donate their hard earned money, or to get out the vote. The Republican base would not be happy with Joe Manchin as their candidate. Carly Fiorina is a great person; however, her record is wide open for attacks from the Democrats. She might try and claim business experience, but her time as CEO of HP is widely regarded as a failure. Additionally, people who like civil liberties will not be encouraged by her past support for the NSA's data collection programs. My campaign offers to unite the factions of the Republican Party and to reach out to communities who don't usually put a check next to the Republican candidate. Our base continues to grow as more and more college students give up their precious time to work in this campaign. Our message of criminal justice reform is widely received in communities of color who have been disproportionally effected by policies, such as the War on Drugs. There are many Democrats who appreciate our policies that are in favor of civil liberties and anti- endless war. This campaign is the only one who doesn't have major weaknesses and can get everyone out to vote Republican in November."

    Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) endorses Carly Fiorina in Waukesha, Wisconsin Thank you all for coming out to the 5th annual Governor's Barbecue, celebrating Wisconsin conservative leaders and heroes from around the state. As you all know, this year's host city is Waukesha here in the beautiful suburbs of Milwaukee, the cradle of our great state's conservative grassroots movement. And here today is a special guest of honor, the woman who will be the next President of the United States, Carly Fiorina! We were so glad Carly was able to make it and quite honestly thrilled at the prospect of her getting to come down and meet all of the wonderful grassroots conservative activists here in Wisconsin. We always have great food and a great time so Carly we are elated to have you. Before she comes up, let me say a few words about why I am proud to offer my official endorsement of Carly Fiorina for President of the United States. Carly and I have known each other for a little while now and it's become clear to me that she is the only candidate in the field of the Republican Party and certainly in the field at large that can bring jobs back to the United States and defend our conservative values both here and abroad. She's the only candidate with strong business experience and she is the only candidate that will be sensible with our military, while there are those in the Republican field with a history of imperialism, and those with a history of isolationism, Carly strikes a different chord; exceptionalism. Her Foreign Policy rides not on empire or isolation, but on the basic principle of American Exceptionalism, that America, its values, and its people are exceptional to the world order and that they should be defended fiercely and vigorously. One need not look further to her experience negotiating deals with Foreign powers to see her prowess in the area, and it was one of HP's largest suppliers, Foxconn that she helped convince move to Wisconsin as my administration took those steps to building a large plant right here, bringing back jobs from China and right back to Wisconsin. She will slash regulations and taxes because she understands how private businesses create jobs, not the government. There is only one candidate capable of defending you and your children, your rights and theirs, and the values of all Americans. Only one candidate who will work on behalf of the grassroots to revolutionize both our beloved party and beloved country. Only one candidate that will bring a Small Government conservative revolution to DC, Carly Fiorina! Rep. Duncan Hunter (R, CA-50) holds a joint campaign event with Carly Fiorina in Escondido, California The Hunter and Fiorina campaigns have decided on a mutual endorsement and to work on furthering the California Republican Party, they are to appear jointly in Escondido, often ranked the most conservative city in San Diego County. A large crowd is expected to see both their current Congressman and candidate for Senator, Duncan Hunter, as well as the favorite daughter of California Republicans for President, Carly Fiorina. Rep. Hunter: Thank you all so much for coming out to support the future of California, for being a part of the revitalization of Californian excellence and growth, and to bring a change to both Sacramento and DC. I am running a campaign built around the people, built around records of success, you can be a big shot actor or politician like Chevy Chase or Kamala Harris and think you can roll around to Californians and get their vote without doing any actual work for them, but let me tell you, you'd be dead wrong. I've been proud to represent the 50th district, San Diego County, in the House since 2009, and more than that, I've been proud of every single and endorsement and vote I've gotten from business owners, single moms, students, teachers, conservatives, moderates, Californians. And that's why I've decided to move from just here in Escondido to the state of California. We have 2 Senators and countless House representatives that don't care for every vote they receive and only care for the big liberal donations with which their pockets are lined. Senator Boxer for years has turned her back on hardworking Californians and let our state spiral farther down the tube of economic disrepair. But there is an answer. 6 years ago, Senator Boxer was re-elected with one of her slimmest majorities in her career of politics, and it was a dear friend of mine that got her down to that 52%. And this year, we are going to deny her anointed liberal successor Kamala Harris, or Loretta Sanchez, or Chevy Chase or whatever politician the Democrats throw at us this seat and we are going to instead elect for change! And because we need that change so urgently, I am proud to introduce to you a close friend of mine, someone that has employed over 100,000 Americans, and dozens of thousands of Californians over her career, the next President of the United States Carly Fiorina! Carly: Thank you so much Duncan. It is great to be back home in California where we are shaking up the liberal political establishment class and installing instead business leaders, community leaders, and down to earth people to positions of power that will serve the people. Like our next Senator just said, I have a record of employing hundreds of thousands of Californians, unlike every other candidate. And that's why I'm proud to endorse fellow Pro-Growth Conservative, Duncan Hunter to be your next U.S. Senator!..."

    OOC: Figured I'd shake things up a bit, just wait a fella who owns Starbucks will be making a similar announcement. I'm looking to have a possible viable centrist third party if we are going to do a 2020 election. This won't effect Poll numbers whatsoever.

    Redacted Mueller Report Poll

    Ah, yes. The impeachment fiasco that turns any charges against a U.S. President or other high Federal official and strips them entirely of being any sort of due process or concept of "justice" in any remote sense and turns it to political theatre, nepotistic favour-trading, and partisan closing of ranks. The Constitutional clause's very existence makes the motto of the District of Columbia, "And Justice for All," nothing more than an insulting taunt while it exists and is in force, or any mechanisms, even de facto, where high government officials (or wealthy elites) have different (and preferential) rules about the way their criminal procedures are compared to all other citizens.

    Redacted Mueller Report Poll

    I don't think it was a waste of time, because we need to know if he colluded or obstructed since it seemed very possible that he did. To me the Report doesn't even exonerate him nor does it incriminate. It makes it sound more like, "Ok, this is as much as I could to within this time limit. If someone finds any more information, then we can do this all over again." His reason for not subpoenaing Trump was that it would slow down the investigation, not that it was unnecessary. It seems Mueller was pressed to wrap this up quicker than he would like. He also states that there are people who refused to speak and information that was erased, destroyed, possibly hidden, that could pretty much could decide whether to exonerate or incriminate Trump. The report does neither. The report seems to be begging for interpretation by voters and lawmakers to make of it what they will. The 10 obstruction possibilities really need to be debated. I also think it's worrying that Trump thought his presidency would be over when he first learned about the Mueller investigation. That sounds like guilt. What innocent person says that? At this point, I don't think it's impeachable without legislators and the court analyzing the 10 obstruction possibilities. I think Trump avoids being Nixon-level scandal, but this is much worse than Bill Clinton's scandal for sure.

    Because someone who has been elected U.S. President should automatically be considered clear and above reproach of any possible crime or wrongdoing?

    I do not want the 10 cases of obstruction to be argued in Trump's favor, I could just see it happening. Hence my vote there. ^This too.

    Just waiting on @jvikings1 and @Actinguy. Also, @Herbert Hoover brought up a good point to me. You can tell me what you want to do if something occurs. For instance, if so and so takes a house (cube you get for congressional support) from so and so, I'd like to try and take the house from so and so. You can be as detailed in your People Round responses as you wish to be. Also, I will be handling these in the order states in the rules, so I have to get everyone's response back before I generate results. I'll then post everything that happens.
