29. Which Republican...

...or third party candidate did he advocate for? Bernie Sanders is a Democrat and we're in the middle of an extremely contentious primary season. Both sides are using every play in the book to get their candidate elected.

DUers have been threatening to write in their candidate, in case of a loss in the primaries, for as long as I've been here. After the primaries, everyone always seems to come around with a promise to 'hold their nose' and vote for the Democrat. If not, then they make a choice to leave or be PPRd.

It's still silly season at DU. I've seen threats by numerous DUers not to vote for the other candidate in the GE. All of those people are still here. Only one, that I can see, has been PPRd for making that claim.

According to DU's TOS, "election season" hasn't started yet, and won't until both parties have chosen a candidate. I think the PPRing of Manny was a rush to judgement.

But when general election season begins, DU members must support Democratic nominees (EXCEPT in rare cases where a non-Democrat is most likely to defeat the conservative alternative, or where there is no possibility of splitting the liberal vote and inadvertently throwing the election to the conservative alternative). For presidential contests, election season begins when both major-party nominees become clear.
