The intensity and duration of them recreates the stress of what holding the office will be like, and it is interesting to see how the two are doing under that stress. The beginnings of campaigns are kind of fluffy. Now that it’s the long haul, I wonder who will have the grace and endurance at the end.”-Mike Jones, lifelong Republican, Nevada resident.
