Welcome to fantasy politics for the 2020 Democratic presidential primary!
Season 5 starts Monday, September 2nd, 2019 and lasts four weeks through Friday, September 27th, 2019.
It's easy to play: each weekend, pick a lineup of 3 potential 2020 Democratic presidential nominees at or under a $20,000 salary cap that you think will get the most media attention in the coming week (Monday-Friday).
Check back each Saturday to see how your team did and pick a new lineup (or stay with your existing trio) before teams lock ahead of Monday morning.
Climb the rankings each week until the leaderboard resets each month. All data, including historical performance and analysis, can be viewed on this spreadsheet. Enjoy the game!

Each week, pick three 2020 Democratic presidential candidates and earn points for the number of combined media mentions received by your candidates that Monday-Friday. Media mentions are measured using stats from NewsLibrary.com. Candidates are awarded 1 point per every 10 media mentions, rounding to the nearest whole number.
Example: A player with 384 media mentions in the week garners 38 points. A candidate with 385 media mentions in the week garners 39 points.
Media mentions are counted from Monday through Friday. Weekends are not counted to allow for the selection of new teams prior to the start of the next week of the season on Monday.
