I also have some suggestions for endorsers

Barry Goldwater-

Paul Fannin- Governor of Arizona. Ran for Goldwater’s seat in 1964. When Goldwater returned to the Senate Fannin voted with him on almost all issues.

Prescott Bush

Herbert Hoover

Ronald Reagan

Robert Kennedy

Phillip Hoff- 1st Democratic governor of Vermont since 1854. His victory had a little help from JFK’s popularity in his state. First Democratic governor to split with LBJ over the Vietnam War, went on to campaign for RFK in 1968.

I believe that the photo above of George Wallace is actually his son George Wallace Jr. who ran for Lieutenant Governor of Alabama last year.

I'm not sure if it is or not - if you can find a photo that would be great.

Just waiting on the 1968 scenario still before I move forward with this.

And I'm just waiting on the Dev Team to get back to me about errors, and then I'll finish 1968 :)

You could use our current copy, but since it has a pair of rather hard to get around errors….

You might want to add Nixon; though he wasn't a declared candidate, he was hoping for a deadlocked convention between Rocky and Goldwater to be able to emerge at. But he could quite easily have tried declaring, too, though that would probably have not gone so well. Still, it's a very reasonable alternative scenario.

Also, he was part of the reason Scranton got into the race.

I'll point out that neither cabinet level secretaries or senators meant much in either momentum or organization.

Governors, at least, have an on the ground organization. Leaders of Congress have name ID, regular senators don't and even if they support someone the odds of the people of their state hearing are low and caring are less.

I really don't know why cabinet level secretaries would be in there at all. They wouldn't endorse, and Johnson wouldn't let them endorse, and their endorsement would mean nothing.

And Hoover, well, he's basically negative momentum :).

Johnson didn't face a primary challenge, and he wouldn't have endorsed anybody anyway, so he really shouldn't be a endorser (likewise with Humphrey).

Eisenhower - $3 Million, 20 Footsoldiers, 10 momentum

Truman - $2 Million, 10 Footsoldiers, 10 momentum

Hoover - $500,000, 5 footsoldiers, 2 momentum

Governors - $250,000, 2 footsoldiers, 5 momentum

Senators - $100,000, 1 footsoldier, 1 momentum

President - $1,000,000, 1 footsolider, 10 momentum

Vice-President - $500,000, 1 footsoldier, 5 momentum

Senior cabinet - $25,000, 1 footsoldier, 1 momentum

Junior cabinet - $10,000, 1 footsoldier

Why is Johnson in the endorsers? Because if you turn him off he will endorse either Wallace or RFK (if RFK is turned on), same with Humphrey. Johnson and Humphrey will be set to endorse Johnson unless Johnson is not in the race.

Cabinet secretaries do not carry a whole lot of weight, but they have sway in Washington, and they have money to donate...especially since they want to keep their jobs. Senators are well known in their states, a local politician endorsing someone will open the doors for a candidate in that state.

Note that Governors and Senators are state-wide endorsers, others are national.

Johnson didn't face a primary challenge, and he wouldn't have endorsed anybody anyway, so he really shouldn't be a endorser (likewise with Humphrey).

Wallace did challenge Johnson and performed quite well, RFK had also been establishing a campaign but decided not to officially enter.

Hoover was a speaker at the 1952, 1956 and 1960 GOP Conventions. Poor health kept him from speaking at the 1964 Convention (he died on October 20th of that year). So apparently he was still pretty popular among Republicans.

I also disagree with your characterization of Cabinet members. Some of them had served as elected officials before they were appointed to the Cabinet. For example:

Stewart Udall was an Arizona Congressman and also served as his brother Mo's campaign manager for the 1976 presidential primaries.

Orville Freeman was the governor of Minnesota.

Luther Hodges was was both the lieutenant governor and governor of North Carolina.

Anthony Celebrezze was an Ohio State Senator (at a time when only a handful of Democrats were elected to the Ohio Statehouse) and later Mayor of Cleveland.

Surely, if these gentlemen were popular enough in their respective states to be elected then it follows that they must have enough momentum on the ground for their endorsements to mean something.

However, I would not include Boyd and Weaver as endorsers since the HUD and DoT were not established until 1966.

I can cave on the Senators (though I think they're unneeded) and Hoover was popular in the Republican base, but let me reiterate one point: the cabinet secretaries (regardless if you think they have personal appeal) would not be allowed to endorse. Simple as that. I don't care if Johnson retires, or isn't running, or is running—his cabinet is his cabinet, and they keep their mouths shut or loudly support Johnson.

They could resign to support someone else, but the game can't model that.
