Since I think my schedule won't allow me to play Trump in a meaningful way, I'll take Delaney.

So, I'm making endorsements, and I'm having a bit of trouble (there are so many). Do I go comprehensive or selective? Or, should I just leave off making a list and refer people to endorsement lists in Wikipedia, etc.?

For the sake of maintaining a sense of the major players in terms of endorsements, the size of the many small possible endorsers, and your time I would say the Wikipedia option works.

OK, since several of you have chosen, I think that declaring a candidacy is possible now.

It is June 10 in this game.

Approximately 3 days IRL = 1 week in this game.

Go ahead and announce.

"Recently Senator Bernie Sanders, Senator Elizabeth Warren,  Governor Steve Bullock, Representative John Delaney, and Entrepreneur Andrew Yang have formed exploratory committees. Also, Donald Trump is set to announce soon."

"We've also heard that co-founder of Green Party Howie Hawkins is going to run for the nomination of his own party."

*Over the past number of weeks Mr. Yang, merely a relatively unknown non-profit founder, has been taking what his colleagues consider a peculiar path. He recently resigned as CEO of Venture For America, and formed an exploratory committee to run for President in 2020, attracting a sense of both awe and pity from those who noticed, for many considered his campaign doomed from the start. However, some have begun to notice, mainly those online, Yang's in depth and well structure platform, mainly his UBI proposal. After some wait Mr. Yang knows it is time to launch a campaign. Surrounded by a small crowd of reporters and interested voters at his exploratory committee's headquarters in NYC Yang takes the stand.*

"If you have heard anything about my interest in running for President in 2020 you have likely thought one thing, "This man is insane.". I am here to tell you that I am not insane, and that the root of my interest in running is not some lust for power or a political grab, no, it is looking at the disease infecting this country, and knowing that now is the time to take action. The 2016 election is the perfect example of this. If you listened to mainstream media, you would think this disease I am referring to, the one which caused key swing states to go for Trump in 2016, is one of racism, sexism, and Russia. This disease is none of those things. It is the fact that we automated away 4 Million jobs in key swing states that Trump won. It is that fact that Amazon paid 0 in taxes last year while closing 30% of our stores. And it is the fact that our communities our being ravaged by an opioid epidemic while the companies supplying these drugs are making hundreds of millions a year. And the thing the thing is, Trump is only a symptom to this disease, and we need to cure the disease. That is why I am hear to say that my interest in running is no longer an interest, I am running for President in 2020. I am running to cure this disease, by taking a slice of the millions Amazon is making and putting it directly in our communities through a Freedom Dividend of $1000 dollars a month, creating millions of jobs and restoring the economic prowess and independence of our communities. I will cure this disease by putting actual help and funding into our communities, creating rehab centers and safe injection sites across the nation to end the opioid epidemic, all the while ending the reign of the companies causing this ailment. And I will cure this disease by separating Human and economic value, allowing for we as a nation to move forward into the 21st century. Someone once told me the opposite of Donald Trump is an Asian man who likes MATH, so if you want to do the MATH and Make America Think Harder then go to Yang2020.com. Thank you."

 

* A memo from the Yang campaign released later in the day would reveal a much more national strategy, mostly ignoring the early states and focusing on Super Tuesday and South Carolina.*

Syracuse NY, Howie Hawkins announces 2020 Presidential Bid

"Upstanding Green Party members across the nation have been calling upon me, to take our party's mantel, and give the American people a choice, a real choice. And today, I answer that call! I'm a former teamster, and Vietnam War vet, which gives me an intrinsic understanding of the struggles of working people, unlike most career politicians, who make millions of dollars of selling America to the highest bidder. My campaign for president is not just about Howie, but it is about all of us. We are going to give a voice, to people left behind by a political class that has shipped millions of jobs overseas, allowed wall street gamblers to grow rich, and sat idly by while pharmaceutical companies flooded our communities with opiods. We'll tackle our climate crisis, and revitalize the economy with the Green party's Green New Deal, running only on renewables by 2030, with a job guarantee at a living wage, and massive investments into public housing, and infrastructure upgrades. No more must people go without needed medical treatment, because they couldn't afford it, with our single-payer healthcare plan, that would give Americans health coverage enjoyed by every other first world nation on Earth. We are going to break up the big banks, restore Glass-Steagall, and institute a financial transaction tax. We are making a party that works for the working class, instead of for the wealthy. Thank you all for coming."

@Jinsu Kim as a veteran from the Democratic races of 1988 and 2016 with Al Gore each time I recommend to play swift turns 😛 

Like 2 weeks by turn or 1 week by turn and couple of days during primaries

I encourage you to add events

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) announces her candidacy in a fiery rally in Boston, MA

We can’t afford to just tinker around the edges — a tax credit here, a regulation there. Our fight is for big, structural change. This is the fight of our lives. The fight to build an America where dreams are possible, an America that works for everyone. I am in that fight all the way. And that is why I stand here today: to declare that I am a candidate for President of the United States of America. The truth is, I’ve been in this fight for a long time.I grew up in Oklahoma, on the ragged edge of the middle class. It is time to create the America that we want and that we need! It's time to dream big!
