He is trying to balance it out by saying that he supports it if such action is taken only by the states.

Roosevelt wouldn't have even entered the race if only La Follette was competing, tbh. The two of them were fellow Progressives, and there is no Taft in the race.

Youre completely wrong, Roosevelt was winning and La Follete did run in real life

La Follette’s relation with Teddy soured a lot, and La Follette thought of Roosevelt as “not progressive enough”

Taft was running in real life.

Taft was Roosevelt's primary opponent, and the reason why he even ran.

Taft is not in the race.

La Follette got 41 delegate votes, and won 2 state primaries, you do not know what you are talking about

Roosevelt dropping out is fine. Kind of odd, but fine. La Follette was a very... extreme progressive so him in a general election against a Democrat could be interesting. Depending on the Democratic candidate, moderate and conservative northern voters could be much more competitive.

Only because Roosevelt was in the race. Before he declared his candidacy, La Follette was the leader of the progressive faction in the Republican Party and was considered to be the premier challenger to Taft.

So you admit that Roosevelt ran against La Follette as opposed to your earlier statement

for fucks sake.

Roosevelt being in the same race as La Follette does not mean that Roosevelt ran specifically against La Follette, or that he would run against La Follette if he was the only other competitor. In the Roosevelt vs. Taft race, La Follette was just collateral damage, someone whose entire niche was taken by Roosevelt once he entered the race specifically to oppose Taft.

Look, what I'm getting to here is: no Taft/other conservative Republican = no Roosevelt.

Regardless, Roosevelt could still run for President in this.

Y'all should keep in mind that in this RP the number of delegates from each state is equal to the number of electoral votes the state has. Use site like 270towin to map out a strategy.

Also, I plan on having the conventions and nominations possibly tomorrow night. If not then, the day after for sure. Then the general election will start.

No. In this RP to save time and make it easy, the number of delegates is equal to the number of electoral votes.
