  1. Looks like Justin Amash has taken two steps closer to making a campaign official. One; he's decided not to seek re-election to the House (Michigan doesn't allow for a candidate to run for two offices simultaneously) and the other is he has now officially joined the Libertarian party https://www.foxnews.com/politics/amash-taking-historic-step-to-white-house-bid-becomes-first-libertarian-in-congress-im-in-the-race-to-win-it
  2. Michigan Republican-turned-Independent Congressman Justin Amash has apparently launched an exploratory committee to seek the Libertarian nomination for President at their convention in Austin (originally scheduled for May but delayed with an replacement date TBA) https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/elections-2020/justin-amash-launches-exploratory-committee-for-libertarian-presidential-bid/ar-BB13l4p0?ocid=U142DHP
  3. Granted at this point the Democratic nomination has been all but handed to former Vice-President Joe Biden on a silver platter (between Bernie Sanders' exit and former President Obama endorsing his VP); but Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards has announced that the state's primary (already moved to June 20 from the original scheduled date of 10 days ago) will be moved again to July 11 (which I'm pretty sure makes this by far the latest date a primary or caucus has ever been held) https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/louisiana/articles/2020-04-14/louisiana-presidential-primary-pushed-back-a
  4. Hello, I'm working on a 1980 campaign based on the built-in campaign; but expanded the number of interviewers and endorsers (basically in the latter, adding all the members of Congress from a given state; Governors and the first in line to succeed them if there's no Lieutenant Governor and adding many of the newspapers in a particular state). I have two questions pertaining to interviewers and endorsers 1. In the case of interviewers, is it possible to set a start and end date for interviewers? (E.g.: One of the built-in endorsers was ABC's "The Iran Crisis: America Held Hostage"; which b
  5. There might have been some passing mention on those networks had it not been for the coronavirus coverage. The difficulty here (much like the allegations in the Brett Kavanaugh hearings) is that so much time has passed it would be very difficult to prove anything one way or the other.
  6. Picked Michelle Obama, but could see Kamala Harris as a VP spot. And I'm pretty sure I wasn't the only one who laughed a bit seeing this option
  7. Maybe about 5-10% nationwide, probably carrying his home state of Vermont and maybe, maybe one or two other small New England states.
  8. After spending close to a billion dollars during his campaign with only a victory in American Samoa to show for all that ad time, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg decides to throw in the towel and support Joe Biden Michael Bloomberg suspends presidential campaign (from ABC News)
  9. I think the game's drunk. How else could Howie Hawkins manage a 10 vote Electoral College lead with almost no popular vote support?
  10. I live in one Super Tuesday state (North Carolina) and am close enough to another Super Tuesday state (Virginia) that the media market I'm in is the Virginia (specifically, Norfolk) market, and outside of a small handful of Trump ads, about 90% of the ads I've seen since about the latter part of December have been for Bloomberg (almost to the point one would be forgiven for thinking he was the front runner)
  11. Considering very few (at least in the national media) were paying much attention to her prior to this weekend I would say Amy Klobuchar had the best primary. It's not every day a candidate could boast of finishing ahead of a more prominent Senator from a neighboring state and a former Vice-President while staying in striking distance of Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg
  12. And Joe Biden decides he's not even going to bother waiting for the polls to close in New Hampshire; announces plans to fly out to South Carolina https://www.bostonglobe.com/2020/02/11/nation/joe-biden-announces-hell-fly-south-carolina-tuesday-missing-election-night-nh/
  13. Not completely, but I'm still thinking he might be wounded from the Iowa fiasco while a combination of Bernie being from next door in Vermont and being able to paint Pete as the "establishment fallback" since Biden performed so poorly in Iowa might work to his benefit in New Hampshire.
  14. My prediction is Bernie Sanders first; then Amy Klobuchar; then Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden
  15. 52-48 on the abuse of power charge, though Romney joined his fellow Republicans in voting for acquittal on the obstruction of Congress charge
