I will TG everyone who was involved in the roleplay previously to post here if they are interested in being a running mate. All presumptive or possible presidential nominees should consider who they would most like to see rejoin the RP as their running mate — not the same character, but the same player with a different character. Reach out to those people and get an idea for what character they might play.

For the conventions themselves, feel free to roleplay any speeches given at the convention, as well as any private interactions — with party officials, with potential running mates, with campaign staff, with delegates, etc.

The GOP nomination will effectively be determined by the unpledged delegates previously pledged to other candidates. Whitehorse has 43, Caulfield has 22, and Fox has 1. Those candidates can command their delegates to vote for a certain candidate. There are another 85 from states and territories that do not pledge delegates. They will vote randomly. Egilson needs 26 to win, while Wright needs 125. The ballots for the GOP convention will be cast [i.e., results posted] on June 13, at 8pm EST, on the Espernet channel #GOPconvention. They will be subsequently posted to the forum.

One last nugget — for those wondering, excluding other candidates throughout the primaries, Egilson won 52.14% of votes while Wright won 47.86% of votes. Egilson won 25 contests, while Wright won 28 contests.

WOOOOOOO HOWDY!

I really wanted this to happen. I'm so happy that it's happening like this.
I use my NationStates stats, because a population of billions/trillions and an economy of hundreds of trillions is totally viable, trust me.
But seriously, aside from the population and GDP, just assume that my NS stats are roughly accurate.

Against: Stupid people, resistance to industrial progress, alt-right, any form of government at or beyond socialism.

Wouldn’t it be funny if the delegate count ended in a tie?

In the meantime, it will certainly be worthwhile for your candidate to be reaching out to former candidates and unpledged delegates!

Also, the results will be announced in the 14th, not the 13th. Typo.

That is a hilariously unappealing picture of my candidate, lol.

Sorry, post up within an hour.

So, what should we do if we can't find someone to roleplay as VP cause all three people I TG'd haven't responded yet. Should I just roleplay as the VP nomination until I someone else can play as them?

Yeah, I TG'd everyone who was involved as well and told them to post in the OOC if they were interested in participating still. Since none of them have posted in the OOC, I think it's a safe, albeit sad, bet that none of them are still interested. So I suppose that means you'll be RPing your own running mates.

Alternatively, if Zjuam and Helowi want to run on a ticket together (with the same or different characters), then I could play your running mate. Let me know what you guys think.

I'm starting up the IRC channel right now! To join go to EsperNet, and join the channel #GOPconvention. To those of you who have never used IRC, know that it logs you out after a few minutes if you aren't looking at it in your browser. Results will be released at 8pm sharp.

It wasn't visible in the balloting process, but of the unpledged Republican delegates, 105 went to Wright, and 46 went to Egilson.

Congrats to everyone on some well-fought primaries!

Oh, lovely, Guess would have preferred a Wright-Egilson not an Egilson-Wright. I already thought of ways to attack the former, not the later. Oh well, back to the drawing board... And to the figuring out who I want as my VP board.

Comey: And I — and you know I do have my disagreements with that infamous report. But I acknowledge that I did do something wrong in those days, and that's one of the reasons I'm running for President, to rectify those wrongs, to fix them.

Ok so, I'm just gonna say sorry for any grammatical issues you guys find in that VP Ballot post, cause its long and I've never been the best at finding grammatical errors in my own writing to begin with, and so I know I didn't find all of them. So. Ya. Sorry if sorry is needed.

Also, new app for the Democratic VP Nominee incoming at some point

Victoria Oladele Randolph - Democratic
Image

Account Name: New Cobastheia
Occupation: Governor of Georgia
Political Ideology: Keynesianism, Democratic Socialism, Left-Libertarianism, Left-Populism, Classical Liberalism

Family:
David Singh (49) - Husband
Alice Singh-Randolph (16) - Daughter
Maia Singh-Randolph (13) - Daughter
Rohan Singh-Randolph (13) - Son
Josh Singh-Randolph (8) - Son

Background:
Born in Baltimore in February of 2006 to an African American descended from Sally Hemings and Thomas Jefferson and a Nigerian Immigrant. The small family moved to the French Quarter in New Orleans in 2007 and Victoria would grow up there as her 4 younger siblings were born. She had a relativity happy childhood, despite how poor her family was. Her parents often had a hard time finding jobs for most of her childhood due to the 2008 recession. At the worst time they were nearly homeless and at the best, they were living in an apartment meant for 3 people. She knew, from a young age, that the only way she could get out of poverty was knowledge.

In school, she was the exceptional student, always in the most clubs, always having the highest GPA, always doing the most sports. On the outside she was always keeping it all together, never showing a crack in her mental state except to her closest friends. Meanwhile, she was breaking at the seams for all of high school. Luckily for her, she got into Yale. Majoring in Ethics, Politics, and Economics, she graduated with a BA in 2028. She then attended Oxford on the Rhodes Scholarship, getting an MPhil in Politics (Comparative) in 2030. For a while she would stay in the UK, living in London for 2 years and working for the Labour Party. Until her long-time boyfriend, a Med Student at Harvard, proposed. She moved back to the States and started work for a non-profit seeking to get business out of politics while volunteering for various local and national organizations.

In 2033, once he graduated, they moved to Atlanta from Boston.

In 2038, a progressive think-tank seeking to get into the field of getting candidates into office contacted Victoria, starting her Senate Campaign. She won the seat, stealing the last remaining safe statewide seat for Republicans in the now blue state. Once in Senate, she tried to stay in the background as much as possible. That didn't last for long as Senator Guess and Senator Randolph tended to co-sponsor legislation a lot of the time. That lead her to be seen as somewhat of a rising star of the party, something of an uniter, as even though she had a clear bias for progressivism she was far more willing to negotiate.

Once Guess left the Senate in 2043, she was left to lead the coalition Guess had crafted in Congress. At first, she was terrible at it and often had to get advice from Guess. That almost cost her reelection in 2044 at 51-49. However, once her second term started she really got a handle of leading. When it came time for the Third California Constitution to be debated upon in Congress, she was one of the biggest reasons it passed. Thinking that, "Hey, maybe one day I could be President? First Black Female doesn't sound all that bad!", she ran for Governor of Georgia in 2046 seeking executive experience she could use to her advantage in 2048 and later.

The race for the Governorship was more or less a race for the Democratic Nomination, as it was known by everyone that the Governorship was safe democratic. So, it was a race between the incumbent governor, a corporate Democrat, and Victoria, a populist Democrat. Victoria won the primary 56-44, partly because she mobilized her supporters, knowing that people tend not to vote in primaries. She went on to win the Governorship at 59-39.

She was planning on running for President in 2048, she didn't expect to win by any means. The goal was to get her name out into the nation, however after Cahill and Fischer announced their runs, she decided it was better to not embarrass herself in front of the country. The next four years past and came, she won reelection. In the early days of the 2052 election, many people hoped she would run for President. However, Guess told her he was going to run, and again Randolph decided not to run, telling Fox News she didn't know if the nation was ready for a Black Woman to rule and instead endorsed Philip Blackburn, a Speaker of a State Legislature, as to through the nation off from her future runs. Then, she was selected for the Vice Presidental nominee for the Democratic Party in an open ballot, something that hasn't happened in nearly a century. As of now, she is ready to fight for a Guess-Randolph ticket.

2039-2047 - US Senator from Georgia
2047-Present - Governor of Georgia

Faith: Protestant

Strengths: Young, Woman, Minority, Mother, Popular in the South, Populist, Great Speaker, a Negotiator, Passionate.
Weaknesses: Tends to stay on the sidelines, can appear somewhat cold and cunning.

Miscellaneous
    Dual Citizen of the United States and Nigeria

Yeah sorry it's not my best graphic design...

But in terms of the projected results, I'm also going to post polls of states that are close. I won't post polls for states that couldn't possibly flip without great effort unless a state is specifically requested.

Also, the calculator is designed to give me a lot of options for polls. They have varying degrees of accuracy. Going forward I'll try reflecting this in the map — polling too much or too little in some places did, after all, change the landscape of the 2016 election. And the 2048 one, too. I still can't believe Fischer pulled that off.
