For anyone who was confused by this, yes, I did accidentally leave Buttigieg out of the South Carolina polling average I posted. This mistake has been fixed.

Bernie will hold a rally in Charleston, South Carolina, where he talks about the need for Medicare for All. He also speaks frankly about his heart attack, and says that even though he's lucky enough to have congressional health insurance, most Americans would be severely harmed financially by the cost of heart surgery like he had.

Bernie holds a rally in Las Vegas, Nevada, where he talks about the need for action on Climate Change, and urges his fellow candidates to come out in support of the Green New Deal.

Bloomberg launches ad campaigns across the South in Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia, Arkansas, and Oklahoma, focusing on Mike's unique ability to defeat Donald Trump.

The Bloomberg campaign will expand their operations in Texas significantly, pouring millions into the creation of 20 more campaign offices across the state over the week.

Bloomberg will make a unique choice in holding a rally in Jacksonville, Florida during the week.

We need just @ALiteralNeoliberalto post and then everyone will have done so. I will roll the dice for all events after that, though I will wait until after 12 AM EST to start the second turn.

Tulsi Gabbard holds a rally in Las Vegas, Nevada about Climate Change. 

Tulsi Gabbard barnstorms the rural areas of Nevada to try and connect with voters from all over the political spectrum. 

The Tulsi Campaign puts ads on the internet to increase name recognition. (targeting Nevada)

Event One D10 Roll: 10! Gabbard brings a surprising energy to the high-turnout event which in turn attracts the media's eyes to such a surprisingly successful event.(Any 10 roll results in instant national coverage)

Event Two D10 Roll: 5. Gabbard holds a series of fairly average events across the state's rural areas.

Event Three D10 Roll: 8 The ads send a major wave of Nevadans to the Tulsi2020 site.

Overall: A great week for a campaign quickly fading into irrelevance.

Biden Rally in Urban South Carolina

"No one in this primary field has done as much as I have for Black Americans. I helped Obama, the first Black president, get elected! Sanders, Bloomberg, Warren, Klobuchar, Buttigieg, all of them haven't done as much as I have for Black Americans! It's possible someone like Bloomberg has set them back with his racist stop-and-frisk!".

Biden Town Hall in Rural South Carolina

"You are full of sh*t man. You are not a true man. You are just a dog-faced lying pony solider!"

Biden Rally in Urban Nevada

"If you want to bring back the greatness of the Obama era, vote Biden for President and text 30330 to donate to my campaign."

Event One D10 Roll: 7. The rally brings high turnout and good organization.

Event Two D10 Roll: 5. Voters pretend to get the joke that Biden was making, and other than that the event is standard and average.

Event Three D10 Roll: 1. Biden refers to Barack Obama as "President Biden" sparking a viral reaction online and media coverage.(All 1 rolls have negative coverage nationally)

Overall: The 1 roll overshadows the other two events, though Joe mostly prevents damage in South Carolina with his rally.

Event One D10 Roll: 7. The rally goes over well with strong turnout and messaging.

Event Two D10 Roll: 6. The townhall goes over well.

Event Two D10 Roll: 7. The ads help build up Warren's Super Tuesday campaign.

Overall: A gradual recovery may yet begin for Warren as her campaign makes small gains here and there.

Event One D10 Roll: 3. Some union members see the meeting as pandering, and the event in scarcely covered.

Event Two D10 Roll: 9. The event bolsters Klobuchar in a state where she will need it.

Event Three D10 Roll: 6. The event goes well and with energy from the Klobuchar campaign.

Overall: With gains in South Carolina and Texas, Klobuchar is improving in some areas certainly, and her momentum is currently carrying her nationally, however a faltering Nevada campaign may not be a good sign.

Event Two D10 Roll: 7. A strong message resonates with those small business owners in the area, and with those seeking a better healthcare system.

Event Three D10 Roll: 5 An average rally. Nothing to say about it. Totally uninteresting in both good and bad ways. Meh.

Overall: A strong week for Steyer 2020, specifically in Nevada.

Event Three D10 Roll: 4 A weaker rally in a state Bernie is currently moving upwards in.

Overall: A strong week for Sanders.

Event Two D10 Rolls: 3. The organization of the offices is messy, and the massive expansion puts a strain on the organizational capacity of the campaign.

Event Three D10 Rolls: 6. A strong rally.

Overall. A fairly bad week considering Bloomberg's momentum.

Event One D10 Roll: 10! A strong townhall gives a boost to Buttigieg!(Viral)

Event Two D10 Roll: 4. A worse than average ad does not help Pete.

Event Three D10 Roll: 10(Okay then)! The ad goes viral as Pete is seen as a hero of the Latino community!

Overall: Pete's post-New Hampshire campaigning appears to have put him into a semi-surge in Nevada and on a continued rise nationally.

Second Turn Polling/Debate/News Updates:

Timeline: The second turn will be in-RP from February 19th until February 22nd, the day of the Nevada Caucus. IRL the turn will take 24 hours up until 12 AM EST tomorrow, at which point Nevada Caucus results will be released and the next turn can begin.

 

Debate: For the Nevada debate I ask that all candidates send in 1. A core message. 2. An attempt to pander to a specific group or state. And 3. An attack on a fellow candidate. I will then roll a dice for all 3 and calculate the final scores for all candidates. Bloomberg will have a -3 modifier on all rolls. Keep things as short as you like, and you can keep the debate items as short as one line or sentence each.

 

News Updates: This week saw the Buttigieg campaign burst into action as Pete made significant gains in Nevada just in time for early voting to start. Not only that, but his impeccable Nevada campaign has propelled him forward nationally, helping break the momentum of Bloomberg(Which was already stalled by a horrible week for Bloomberg) and further weaken the ever-declining Biden. This momentum has heavily affected the Nevada race, where he has taken second in the state, beat out currently by Bernie Sanders, who has gained only marginally in the state as a wide cast of candidates find momentum. Gabbard, meanwhile, has begun to gather many disaffected left-wingers and former Yang supporters as the Caucus nears with a surprisingly strong campaign in the state. Steyer is also on the rise, surging in Nevada, while Warren and Sanders make marginal gains, Klobuchar falters, and Joe Biden collapses in the state. On the national scene, Buttigieg is surging while Bernie has cemented his lead nationally. Bloomberg has stalled and is in active decline as the momentum he once had has all but evaporated. Biden has been in decline, however, has maintained his lead in South Carolina. Klobuchar, meanwhile, has improved in South Carolina and nationally, but only marginally taking into account the momentum she had after New Hampshire. Meanwhile, Steyer and Gabbard are both on the rise nationally taking into account their positions in the race.

Debate 

1. Shows himself as a voice of reason amid political turmoil and chaos,

2. Targets working class and Latino voters, especially in Nevada, appearing as a down to earth politician who is able to get things done while not losing touch with the American people,

3. Attacks Bernie for being too radical to unite the party against Donald Trump in November, and against the Congressional republicans over the coming years,

Event One D10 Roll: 6. A somewhat strong townhall strengthening Biden in the state, albeit in a minor fashion.

Event Three D10 Roll: 4. A fairly noticed yet seemingly stilted and awkward event.

Debate Scores:
Steyer: +6 
Klobuchar: +5 
Buttigieg: +4
Warren: 0
Sanders: -1  
Gabbard: -3 
Biden: -5
Bloomberg -8 

Overview:
The Nevada Debate appears to have had a serious impact on the race as both Bloomberg and Biden, moderate giants, faltered while their competitors, Klobuchar, Steyer, and Buttigieg gained ground. Out of the three, Steyer was most well regarded as the winner of the debate, namely due to his knockout attack on Joe Biden regarding race. This brutal attack has seriously weakened Biden, namely in South Carolina, where many African Americans now seemed turned off to the Vice President. Steyer is now gaining among African Americans in polls after the debate, as well as Klobuchar, who introduced a new slate of policies to reform the criminal justice system while on the debate stage. Meanwhile, despite Biden's losses, Bloomberg was a total mess on stage, failing to even open his mouth when asked one question, instead just muttering "You can do this Mike, come one." to himself over and over again. He, Biden, and Gabbard have been regarded as losers of the debate, while Warren and Bernie mostly had unremarkable nights.

Nevada Results are coming in in about 30 minutes!
