Introduction

Playstyle
Doug Burgum is a pragmatic domestic-issues focused candidate that performs well among the rurals, serving as the jack-of-all-trades; master of none.
Strengths Weaknesses
  • All-Rounder: Doug doesn't disappoint in any particular category, having generally average stats across the board, meaning that he won't have anything holding him back.
  • Media Likeness: One area where Doug will be able to outrun other candidates is when it comes to getting ads, as he won't need to expand the traditional 4 bars of stamina to get an advertisement up and running.
  • Rural Issues: Doug Burgum's focus on rural issues such as Agriculture Support, Energy Independence, and Rural Connectivity make him a prime candidate to take states such as Iowa, making him an excellent primary candidate, and a favorite among farm states.
  • Master of None: Doug Burgum doesn't have any major weaknesses, however he also doesn't have any particularly unique decks either. Because of this he will play like a generally average candidate, with a special focus on rural issues. Because of this he may get more mileage in a primary, but otherwise won't excite the race in any particular area in a head-to-head matchup.
