The Yang campaign in an official memo states the following, "Many, many people right now are asking where our campaign is right now. By that, we mean that they are asking where our campaign is looking to win in this primary when we have been on the decline in National polling since December, when we are practically destined to crippling failure in Iowa and New Hampshire, and when we are attacked on all sides again and again on the debate stage. The answer is, we are, and will be, in Nevada. Our campaign is officially announcing that the next month until caucus day will be devoted to one of the most vigorous bus tours of Nevada ever seen in US electoral history. All of the sixteen counties(Along with Carson City) in Nevada will be vigorously toured with at least 8 events a county. This tour will also include vigorous preparation for the caucus system, with a massive infrastructure, manpower, and financial commitment being placed upon creating the best possible infrastructure in the state for caucus day. Many are already declaring Yang the star that burned out in this primary, but he, and his campaign, are far from removed from the equation." The Yang campaign will announce a new TV ad campaign in Nevada for $1 Million, with the ad focusing on Democracy Dollars and the need to put electoral power into our people's hands now before more change can be fought for. The ad will feature John Delaney and Stacy Abrams. The campaign will also spend $2 Million on ads in South Carolina. $1 Million will be devoted to TV ads in the state focusing on Yang's Climate Plan, featuring Jim Clyburn, and the other $1 Million will be placed down for a vigorous Newspaper and Radio ad campaign, with the ads focusing on the immediate need to act on automation. Evelyn Yang, Stacy Abrams and Jim Clyburn will also spend the week holding a tour of South Carolina holding forums on the future of the African American community under a Yang Administration.

President Trump runs a 4 million dollar ad blitz in Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. The ad has Mike Lindell doing a voice over, describing Trump as the greatest President since the 80's, and how he is a fighter for small business and working class Americans. 

Trump also sends out some tweets. "IMPEACH HOAX! BLOCKING REAL LEGISLATION THAT WILL HELP ALL AMERICANS!" "Impeachment is wasting YOUR tax dollars!" after a while he sends some other tweets. "I have planned a new tax cut, bigger than before, believe me! However we can't let the do-nothing-democrats and loser for life Mitt get in the way. Every MAGA supporter needs to go out and vote!" "I WILL KEEP AMERICA GREAT, WE WILL KEEP AMERICA GREAT TOGETHER!"

Hawkins campaigns in Helena, Montana, talking about his agricultural policy.

"Like the original New Deal, the ecosocialist Green New Deal will have a strong agricultural program. Chemicalized and industrialized corporate agribusiness is driving family farmers off the land, rural America into depression, and ecosystems to collapse while failing to end hunger and malnutrition. It is depleting water aquifers and soils and driving insects to extinction, all leading to the collapse of ecosystems and food production itself. We are campaigning for a rural reconstruction program that revitalizes and reintegrates town and country, that is centered around a Just Transition to Organic Agriculture and Green Manufacturing. We are also campaigning for policies that would promote urban agriculture."

Hawkins holds rally in San Jose, talking about his plan to regulate Big Tech.

"Online platforms like Amazon, Facebook, Google, and Uber tend toward monopoly because people gravitate to the platforms that have the most users and information. These monopolies are abusing data collection and privacy, censoring content, and eliminating competitors through predatory pricing and buyouts. The remedy is a combination of antitrust action to divest tech conglomerates of multiple platforms and the conversion of some platforms to public utilities that serve the public interest. We also advance the view that, the Internet must be regulated as a public good and a basic right, open and accessible to all with net neutrality and personal privacy and data protected.It is undeniable, at this point, that in a first world country that internet access is a necessity for modern life, for a variety of reasons, which is why are campaigning for the establishment of a public broadband service as a not-for-profit public utility in order to provide universal access to a high-speed phone, TV, and internet service at lower costs and with net neutrality."

Hawkins talks civil liberties while campaigning in Concord, New Hampshire

"We are campaigning for the restoration of America's civil liberties, that are under attack from an expanding police state, promoted by both major parties. The Greens, unlike either the Democrats, or the Republicans, are campaigning for an end to the unwinnable War on Drugs, the abolition of the NSA, an end to preventative detention, abolition of cash bail, and the repeal of the 1917 Espionage Act. We will also end the persecution of whistleblowers, who help keep the government honest, and the public informed."

Mike Gravel holds a rally in Mountain View, California about Corporate Law and Internet Access as a human right

"I have been around this area a whole lot lately. The land of Big Tech as I like to call it. From Google to Facebook and HP to many others. The Bay Area is one of the richest places in the world! But many take advantage of the working class favoring the interest of shareholders. Simple changes to American corporate law would bring corporations under more democratic control, and would allow for other reforms to be made."

"Corporations¬†that either have more than 300 employees or that have a revenue of at least $5 million a year should be required¬†to be chartered at the national level. Obligate all nationally-chartered corporations to consider the interests of all stakeholders, especially workers, and not just shareholders. The workers should always be put first before shareholders.¬†Require that half of all board members of nationally-chartered organizations be elected by employees lower than the 80th percentile in the company‚Äôs pay structure. This is so everybody can have a voice no matter their economic status. A¬†Corporate Harm Prosecution Agency should be established. This agency will have¬†broad oversight to investigate, subpoena, and return a binding claim with its findings on the negative externalities that corporations produce.¬†The CHPA would investigate a corporation for the negative externalities it produces, then return a verdict. The corporation and the CHPA would have one year to work out an agreement for how to amend the problem‚ÄĒfor example, Walmart could reduce food stamp usage by its employees by 50 percent in a way approved by the CHPA. If the corporation fails to amend the negative externality, the CHPA would have the power to suspend all stock buybacks and dividends."

"I also want to talk about the Internet while I'm here in Silicon Valley. It is nearly impossible to live life in the United States without access to the internet. Not only is it a vital hub for commerce and information, but it is also critical for practicing the right to speech in the 21st century: the new global town squares are outlets like Twitter and Facebook. It is time for the United States to formally recognize a human right to internet access, and thus declare it a public utility; doing so would democratize the internet and free it from the grasp of large companies like Comcast. We must declare the internet a public utility, and establish a national publicly-owned ISP. With this national public ISP, internet access would be free to all. We must also declare access to the internet a right afforded to all Americans. We should refrain from censoring internet content. The internet is a tool for everyone to use, we should not be taking down content from it."

"This is part of my plan for a better American for all!"

DSA Chapters in Iowa start organizing and hold events supporting Gravel in a last-minute push.

Governor Martin O’Mally, Amy O’Rourke and Rep. Cindy Axne spent the entire week together campaigning all across Iowa. In the absence of many major campaign events from Governor Mcauliffe, moderate and conservative supporters have been flocking to Beto campaign events in large numbers. Visiting coffeee shops, speaking at auditoriums and attending rallies, the O’Rourke team in Iowa has been making serious progress even giving the absence of Beto, who was off campaigning in New Hampshire. The original goal of the O’Rourke campaign had been to reach the 15% threshold in Iowa, however at the rate at which momentum is growing for Beto in Iowa, they may even reach beyond that number. Due to this, the O’Rourke campaign launched a barrage of Facebook ads in the state, focusing on many policies important to Iowans that a Trump has failed to adress but that Beto is considering as priorities, including public schools, aiding farmers during the trade war and raising the federal minimum wage.

I'm really not sure how I want to do it yet. However I will be simulating the realignment process. Iowa is harder to do in terms of results coming in because it is a caucus. For primaries I might do reporting figures, but for caucuses it'll likely just be First Alignment, Final Alignment, and Delegate results.

Elizabeth Warren holds her last rally in Iowa at the University of Iowa in Iowa City. She speaks in Carver Hawkeye Arena with three endorsers behind her: Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and former Iowa first lady Christie Vilsack (D-IA). She says that she understands the importance of making the party grow and unify, and says that the three women behind her are evidence of it. She says that no other political figure would've been able to assemble the ragtag group the Warren campaign has built. She says that unlike any other candidate, people can proudly call themselves "Warren Democrats" because of what it means: devotion to ideals, a firm belief in a world that can be better, and a unity among people that makes people happy about the future, rather than dragging others down. She implores people to go out to vote the next day in the Iowa Caucus, saying that it is important that people exercise their right to vote, even if it isn't for her. She allows Baldwin, Pressley, and Vilsack to say a few words, Baldwin on unity, Pressley on a vision for the future, and Vilsack on Elizabeth's connection to Iowa, before going down the iconic selfie line.

The Yang campaign will spend the days leading up to Iowa swinging through the rural areas of Nevada, focusing on building up a comprehensive command-and-control system across the entire state for caucus day, as well as attracting attention from voters in the state, with there being little attention placed on the state leading up to Iowa . The campaign will finally return to urban areas by holding an all night strategy session with key campaign officials in the state, open to the public and the media, in Carson City on the night of the Iowa Caucus. Before the session begins, and before any Iowa results come in, Yang takes the stage, "Tonight is not the night for this campaign. We put almost nothing into Iowa, and I fully expect Iowa to not give much back. But, before I go on, I would like to thank those Iowans who are showing up at the caucus sites, and it may be hard for you, but I invite you, if you are below the 15% threshold at your caucus site, to move to the candidate of your heart. I say that not because I am dropping out, Hell no, but because we need this primary to be uniting for our nation and our party. With that said, I'd like to thank another group of people. While our campaign has declined in national polling, been attacked on the debate stage, and rocked to its core, we have had this group behind us. This group of people will be behind us after Iowa, after the media declares us dead in the water, and after New Hampshire. This group of people, are the people of Nevada, and let me tell you they will be behind us on caucus day when we have the biggest comeback in political history since Bill Clinton and win this state! We have built a coalition here, a coalition devoted to helping our fellow Humans and leading this nation into the future! Thank you Nevada, and I think I'll be saying that for the rest of my political history!" The campaign will launch TV ad campaigns in CA, NC, and MA, with the ads featuring Stacy Abrams and focusing on the Freedom Dividend for the cost of $3 Million. $1 Million will also be placed down to run a TV ad campaign in NV, with the ads focusing on the coalition Yang is building in the state, mentioning Yang's Climate plan, Healthcare plan, and Democracy Dollars.

Mike Gravel holds a rally in Reno, Nevada about Transportation policy

"Cars are choking America. Transportation emits more greenhouse gas emissions in the United States than any other source, including energy. More than 30,000 Americans die each year in car crashes, and Americans are more likely to be killed by a car crash than by any other unnatural cause of death other than opioid overdoses and suicide. Despite the damage cars cause, highways dominate domestic transportation spending, creating a vicious cycle of auto dependence that strands Americans who cannot drive, and leaves the rest stuck in traffic."

"When the United States brings home the hundreds of billions wasted abroad each year on endless wars of choice, it is essential to spend less on highways, not more. Instead, the United States must redirect both highway and military spending to public transportation, safe and walkable complete streets, and a national railroad system. Peace from endless wars of choice means good jobs, more freedom of movement, and new infrastructure Americans can be proud of."

"What we must do is to set ambitious targets for reducing transportation carbon emissions as part of the Green New Deal, by shifting car and truck traffic to public transportation, walking, cycling, and freight rail. We must end all federal funding to building new highway lanes, and demolish obsolete urban highways that cut neighborhoods in half, spew pollution, and cause more congestion than they relieve. We can redirect that money to public transportation, complete streets built for people rather than cars, and an Interstate Bikeway System of protected bicycle lanes. Introduce new operating subsidies to public transit operators on the condition that existing Metropolitan Planning Organizations create a unified fare structure for each major urban area, with consistent flat-rate or distance-based fares and free transfers, regardless of mode or operator. Nationalize the major railroads by restructuring Amtrak, state commuter railroads, and Class I private freight railroads into a national railroad that would build and operate passenger and freight service nationwide."

"Expand intermodal BUILD grants and develop new grants programs, including: electrification grants to accelerate the electrification of cars, trucks, buses, diesel rail lines, and shore power in port facilities; accessibility grants to achieve system wide accessibility of streets and legacy transit systems under the Americans with Disabilities Act; and modernization grants to improve existing legacy infrastructure to run trains and buses faster and more frequently. Convert outdated and exclusionary commuter rail into affordable regional rail that runs at high frequency at all times of day, like an urban-suburban subway and make sure it uses Green energy. Develop an Interstate Rail System, including high-speed rail in key corridors, to connect all major metropolitan areas that lie within 500 miles of one another. Have be free or low-priced, then boom people are gonna start using rail. Phase out short-hop flights to destinations served by the Interstate Rail System, and develop code-sharing so that passengers can transfer seamlessly to and from the rail network at key air-rail hubs. Undertake a top-to-bottom review of infrastructure construction costs which, like the arms industry, is plagued by backwards bureaucratic practices, corrupt contracting, and revolving-door career paths."

"My Transportation plan is a plan for the 21th century. A plan that can help the switch from fossil to alternative. A plan that guarantees everybody can get free, quality transportation. A plan that can make America proud!

The Gravel campaign spends 180k on TV ads targeting Carson City

Pictured above: Representative Dave Loebsack (IA-02) endorses Governor Terry McAuliffe ahead of the Iowa Democratic Caucus

Governor Terry McAuliffe received another valuable endorsement this week, this time coming from where his campaign may need a push to remain viable in all the states counties; Iowa. 

Representative Dave Loebsack, representing Iowa’s second congressional district, endorsed McAuliffe today, citing his long record of civil rights and his ability to work with a Republican legislature. 

“Coming out of a state like Iowa, I know what compromise is. And I know that to get legislation through Washington, compromise is required. I took a long and hard look at every candidate running this year, and we had an amazing group. But at the end of the day, Terry is the one I trust most to get things done in Washington. 

Terry is the one to trust to expand your healthcare, to create your jobs, and to defeat Donald Trump. I urge my constituents to take a good look at Governor McAuliffe‚Äôs policies and come out to support him, he‚Äôll work to earn your vote and work to represent you in the White House!‚ÄĚ

This marks Iowa’s first representative to endorse Terry McAuliffe, with only freshman representative Abby Finkenauer having not made a formal endorsement as of yet, though the moderate representative seems likely to endorse McAuliffe just as her colleagues have in the past month.

Governor Terry McAuliffe, absent Democratic hopeful, returns to the campaign after a brief absence meeting with local Virginians

Governor Terry McAuliffe seems to be camping out in Iowa after a long absence on the campaign trail. Asked by reporters about this absence, he cited that he needed some time to meet with constituents back home in Virginia to ensure that they knew their voice was heard even amongst a national political campaign by the former governor. 

"President Trump may think he’s being tough on China. All that he’s delivered as a consequence of that is American farmers, manufacturers and consumers losing and paying more. His economic decision-making is so shortsighted and as shortsighted as the rest of his foreign policy. This trade war MUST come to an end, Iowans. As your president, I can promise that not only will tariffs go down, but that your pocketbooks will be heavier. America has had enough of President Trump's nonsense; I am asking for your vote as the sole candidate who can take Donald Trump on in November. With your vote, we can sweep Iowa and get the momentum to ensure that the Democratic Party has a nominee that not only stands for liberal values, but one that can enact them and win the election."

Governor Terry McAuliffe speaks to crowd of several hundred in Des Moines, Iowa, ahead of the pivotal Iowa caucus

Governor Terry McAuliffe's presidential campaign, while hitting a bit of a slump in Iowa polling due to the rise of Representative O'Rourke, hopes to regain momentum prior to the famous first in the nation caucus in Iowa. The McAuliffe campaign planned a large event in Des Moines and was surprised to see turnout that far exceeded the expected numbers; Perhaps the Governor's absence got the voters yearning for more! 

McAuliffe took the podium outside a community center to speak with Iowans about their concerns about the economy, about how they've been hurting financially, and about what he could do best to make sure that they felt as though they were represented by his campaign. 

"Iowa, from the bottom of my heart, I am so sorry for how our government has failed you. I am sorry for how Donald Trump has failed you. There is nothing that can be done to undo the damage he has done to Iowa in the past four years. However, going forward, we must make sure that communities such as your own are our top priority. My administration will not engage in petty trade wars for the sake of some television star's ego. My administration will not refuse to raise the minimum wage, even though millions of Americans are clamoring for it. My administration will not bail out big agriculture at the expense of your local farmer who's just trying to make a living. 

Iowans, when I ran, I ran for you. I ran for millions of Americans across the country who just want life to go back to normal and stop the circus that our government has become with Donald Trump at the head. 

When you go out the polls, remember Iowa, that I can win. I have much respect for my fellow candidate Representative O'Rourke, but he doesn't have the coalition that we have here today. A coalition of women, of black voters, of moderates, liberals, and progressives alike. We can win in November like no other candidate can. So when you cast your ballot today, Iowans, remember what matters, the only way for your voice to ultimately be heard is to defeat Donald Trump. And I can do that, folks. I look forward to it.

A frame of an ad put out by the McAuliffe campaign in which Governor McAuliffe stresses his record of electoral victory against Representative O'Rourke

The McAuliffe campaign, sensing a need to stunt to momentum of a certain upstart representative from Texas, blasted their most expensive ad buy of the campaign by an incredibly large margin comparing McAuliffe and O'Rourke. 

*Slideshow of McAuliffe holding cabinet meetings as Governor of Virginia*
When Virginia needed to recover and thousands were unemployed, McAuliffe rose employment in every single county and took control of the crisis. 

*slideshow of McAuliffe shaking hands with Obama, Bill Clinton, and Joe Biden*
While Trump was playing golf and ignoring your pleas, Governor McAuliffe met with Democratic Leaders to discuss how he can best take back control for the average American. 

*slideshow of McAuliffe rallying in Des Moines and speaking with plain clothes farmers*
While other candidates ignored the plead of Iowans, McAuliffe camped out in the state to understand how they felt and assured them that we will end the trade war

*slideshow of McAuliffe and O'Rourke debating*
While other candidates have a spotty electoral record and no accomplishments in Congress, McAuliffe won Virginia convincingly and convinced Americans that the best path forward was one that returned the world to normal and ended the chaos of Donald Trump*

*slideshow of McAuliffe's victory speech after his reelection in Virginia*
McAuliffe is a proven winner. McAuliffe has worked with Republicans to ensure that the life of every American has improved. No candidate has the experience that McAuliffe has nor the record for progress. 

To defeat Donald Trump, we need a leader. Governor McAuliffe is that leader.

Pictured above: Iowa Representative Abby Finkenauer walks the crowds of a McAuliffe rally after she endorses Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe in Des Moines, Iowa

The McAuliffe campaign is proud to announce the endorsement of Representative Representative Abby Finkenauer. Abby has fought for Iowans, and she knows that Terry will fight for their jobs, their healthcare, and their insurance too! 

“In a historically crowded field, Terry stands out. He has an impressive record in Virginia, and I know that he’s an inspiration to many here in Iowa. I have not excitedly supported a candidate for president in my lifetime, and there are many like me here in Iowa. 

To all of those who I represent, know that Terry represents you as well. Terry represents the poor, the struggling, the middle class. He has built a coalition not at all unlike Obama‚Äôs that won 2008 in a landslide. He will do what no other candidate can do and defeat Donald Trump in November!‚ÄĚ

This endorsement comes at a crucial time for both the McAuliffe campaign as well as the Abby Finkenauer reelection campaign. Finkenauer has come under fire for her call to impeach Donald Trump, and her Republican potential opponents have hammered her for this in television and radio attack ads since.

For McAuliffe, this comes at a time where he desperately needs to continue to win over moderate and traditionally liberal support in the face of a rising O’Rourke campaign. Finkenauer is decidedly a member of both factions of the party, and tonight will tell if her endorsement resonates with the largest congressional district in Iowa.
