    Midwestern Equality Act

    @Dogslife @James Grant In light of the hiatus and the unusual time interlude involved, I was just checking to see if there are any objections or words of support/disagreement for the motion of unanimous consent once the game/elections officially resumes.

    2020 Midwest Senate Election Preview If an election were held today for the office of US Senator from the Midwest, Republican Representative Johnathon Grant of Missouri @SWMissourian would be elected Senator. That is, of course, a very big hypothetical as the election is not being held today, and the Midwest is bracing for a campaign is likely to be hotly contested by both candidates and supported heavily by their parties in this crucial swing region. Johnathon Grant (R-MO): 52%, Craig Daniels (D-IA): 44%; Shirley Jones-Jackson (I-IL): 3% Initially polling gives Grant an estimated eight point lead over his rival Craig Daniels @Sovereign across the region, although Daniels does lead Grant in the state of Illinois. Shirley Jones-Jackson, an independent candidate from Chicago, would take approximately 3% of the total vote. "Right now, Grant is a better established candidate compared to Daniels," commented Thomas Schoolcraft, Chicago Tribune's lead political commentator. "He's been an active figure in Congress and the press longer than Daniels, and he's also a bit more recognizable due to the recently contested Republican primary. However, Daniels has a larger war chest and word is he is receiving large financial support from Democrats. He can easily use that money for spending on ads to close that gap." Both candidates have been conducting town halls and introducing themselves more to voters, and reports state that those in attendance come away looking favorably on the candidates, "Both candidates are playing well to their partisan voters without alienating moderates. Neither has a particularly high cross-over appeal into the other party at this point. Which is fair, as it can be hard to cross-over without annoying your core supporters. All depends on their strategy." Both candidates have released platforms as well. "Both platforms were well done and provide information to voters on a plethora of issues. This shows voters that both candidates are taking this election seriously and voters will hold the eventual winner to account for delivering on their promises." As for the independent candidate, Schoolcraft had this to say: "She's a bit of an enigma to voters at this point, but she may be attempting to play spoiler. She has a history as a progressive activist, but it's hard to say if she can really pressure Daniels in any way as she doesn't appear to have the resources or profile to mount a significant campaign."

    2020 Midwest Legislature Election Preview The campaign season is getting into full swing, and the Midwest regional legislature is no exception. Candidates and their supporters are out knocking on doors, putting up yard signs, and running those campaign ads we all love to hate. All 100 seats in the legislature are up for election every two years, and 2020 is no exception. With the backgroud noise of the race for US Senator and a Presidential election, it can be hard for local candidates to stand out, but Republican and Democratic candidates alike will be giving it their all to win office. The Chicago Tribune has conducted a region-wide survey and provides the following estimation of where the parties stand heading into the campaign season contrasted to how they did in the previous election. Previous Election Results Illinois: 5 Republicans, 14 Democrats Indiana: 7 Republicans, 3 Democrats Iowa: 1 Republican, 4 Democrats Kentucky: 5 Republicans, 2, Democrats Michigan: 7 Republicans, 8 Democrats Minnesota: 3 Republicans, 6 Democrats Missouri: 6 Republicans, 3 Democrats Ohio: 12 Republicans, 5 Democrats Wisconsin: 5 Republicans, 4 Democrats Total: 51 Republicans, 49 Democrats 2020 Preview Illinois: 3 Republican, 5 Tossup, 11 Democratic Indiana: 4 Republican, 3 Tossup, 3 Democratic Iowa: 0 Republican, 3 Tossup, 2 Democratic Kentucky: 4 Republican, 1 Tossup, 2 Democratic Michigan: 2 Republican, 6 Tossup, 7 Democratic Minnesota: 4 Republican, 1 Tossup, 4 Democratic Missouri: 3 Republican, 5 Tossup, 1 Democratic Ohio: 4 Republican, 11 Tossup, 2 Democratic Wisconsin: 2 Republican, 3 Tossup, 4 Democratic Total: 26 Republican, 38 Tossup, 35 Democratic Chicago Tribune political commentator Thomas Schoolcraft remarked upon the survey and gave the lay of the land: "We see a clear lean by the voters towards the Democratic side as the campaign season gets going in earnest. The progressive Democrats are largely motivated to turn out and get a victory for their Governor and deliver the regional legislature to him. Interestingly, some of the rhetoric from the Governor @Dogslife regarding guns, coupled with Republican action @James Grant on that matter, is motivating conservatives to get back into the game, although they are still not at the level of progressive motivation. Republicans may still end up holding onto the legislature, but it will definitely be an uphill climb for them. Missteps or overheated rhetoric could up alienating moderates and cost the election for either side. Yet sometimes that rhetoric is what gets your base really amped up to vote. Coattail effects if the Presidential or Senatorial candidates wins a state by a significant margin could also play a role in the results. The legislature will still be in session during the campaign. With money not being a factor in these minute local races, this election will likely come down to good decisions from the party leaders. I personally can't wait to see what happens."

    John Grant For Senate | Senate Campaign Townhall

    (Jennifer Lane; Reporter, Chicago Tribune) Representative Grant, the Midwest legislature passed a resolution condemning the 'White Crusaders', yet that group still claims they will be rallying in Skokie, Illinois and there are unconfirmed reports that they've been responsible for vandalizing and/or burglarizing marijuana shops in the Detroit area. Should the Midwest government or federal government be taking additional actions against this or other groups? Should they be permitted to rally in Skokie?
  15. (Jennifer Lane; Reporter, Chicago Tribune) Representative Daniels, many voters in the Democratic party believe that their party's candidates should more be more reflective of America's changing demographics. As a white, straight, married male, how would you address the concerns and desires of those voters? Relatedly, the Midwest legislature passed a resolution condemning the 'White Crusaders', yet that group still claims they will be rallying in Skokie, Illinois and there are unconfirmed reports that they've been responsible for vandalizing and/or burglarizing marijuana shops in the Detroit area. Should the Midwest government or federal government be taking additional actions against this or other groups? Should they be permitted to rally in Skokie?
