We just need @Reagan04to post. I won't be able to start on results tonight, but I will be able to start tomorrow morning it seems.

Carly Fiorina withdraws and endorses Marco Rubio. She cites the need for Republicans of all stripes. From moderates to grassroots conservatives, to rally around a conservative unifier and beat Donald Trump.

Jeb Bush tours the state of Vermont trying to appeal to voters.

The Bush campaign will release a TV ad targeting all Super Tuesday States about Jeb Bush's amazing record and why he would defeat the Democrats in November

Overall: +15. I have no words for this.

Rand Paul withdraws, and endorses Carly Fiorina

Endorsement Roll: 5. Many Rand Paul supporters support Carly(This means that their support will be determined by the Carly endorsement roll),  while only a handful flow to Carson and other candidate.

Endorsement Roll: 2. Weak endorsement leaves many Carly and former Rand supporters lost, and many flow to other candidates, notably Ben Carson, who as he sucked up Cruz support does the same to many Carly voters.

Super Tuesday Debate Scores:

Donald Trump: +8. Trump gave skill and fire on the debate stage, delivering a strong appeal to working class voters throughout the night. However, his crowning moment was a devastating take-down of Marco Rubio, who was left flustered and unable to respond thanks to Trump's attacks.


Jeb Bush: +5. Jeb was strong throughout the night, delivering a strong appeal to moderate voters and a well crafted message focused on political unity. Despite a failed attack on Trump, it was a strong night.


Marco(Polo) Rubio: -2. Marco delivered a strong appeal to Texas and a strong message, but was felled by Trump's attacks and a failed attack of his own.


Ben Carson: -7. Carson seemed to be begging Fiorina voters to support him, seemed to have a muddled and weak message, and failed miserably trying to attack Trump. A bad debate.

March 2nd Race Updates/Debate/Polling:


Debate: All candidates can send in a message, pander, and attack as usual.


Timeline: This turn will last until tomorrow morning EST to allow room for everyone to post or until everyone has posted. In-RP it will last from March 2nd to March 10th(All early-March contests are included in this turn)

News Updates: Super Tuesday saw perhaps the worst-case scenario for those hoping to stop Trump, as a surge from Jeb Bush and the strength of Ben Carson among rural evangelical conservatives proved to both weaken and lead to the failure of Rubio in a number of states. This failure from Rubio allowed Trump to capture all but 2 states voting on Super Tuesday, giving him strong momentum and over a 60 delegate lead. However, as the race continues many still have hope Trump can be stopped, though the continued presence of Bush and Carson may dash these hopes, or perhaps force them to a contested convention...
