Introduction

Playstyle
  Dan Crenshaw is a potently-rounded politician with a new generational outlook, and an eyepatch to prove it.
Strengths Weaknesses
  • Hyper Stamina: Dan Crenshaw starts off the game with above-average stamina which will be important for getting your HQs up and running. Like another Harvard-educated U.S. Veteran (See: Pete Buttigieg) Crenshaw will have little standing in his way in terms of tenacity and dedication.
  • Engaging Charisma: Crenshaw's charisma will rub off well on his voters, and it'll show too - when you only have to spend 4 stamina points instead of the usual 5 to get a speech done.
  • Media Likability: Dan Crenshaw has not shied away from attacking both sides and has earned himself goodwill with the media in the process. Thanks to his politically-savvy character, he will be able to get by with spending just the right amount of time he needs to hone in on a good ad, but with only the 5% ad effectiveness to boot.
  • Lagging Start: Similarly to another well-rounded candidate (See: Tim Scott), Crenshaw does above-average in many categories, but without the Tim Scott issue scores to boot. However he will able to use his extra stamina point to good-use to frequently reposition more, and have a slightly easier time getting HQs up and running in the states he needs to in order to overcome his meager funds.


Stamina Attributes

In a single turn Crenshaw can do:

  • Up to 13 movements in a single turn.
  • Up to 3 Speeches with 1 stamina point leftover.
  • Up to 4 Advertisements with 1 stamina point leftover.
  • Up to 3 HQ upgrades with 1 stamina point leftover.

Issue Stances

Issue stances affect how well a candidate will be received across various states. Changes in some issue stances may help in one state but hurt in another. Overall, they average out to give a general consensus of how your candidate is received, having a direct link to your electability across the board.
