Your analysis should use the Leesburg Grid (provided in a downloadable document below) as your principal tool for assessing this potential race. In developing your memo, you should also include a Leesburg Grid which must be annotated with each candidate's perceived strengths and weaknesses.
As part of this analysis, include:
1. Your assessment of their respective real strengths and weaknesses.
2. Any insights from past races.
3. Your assessment of the most significant potential issue contrast.
4. Your forecast of the likely winner of this match-up.
While your memo is arguably an exercise in speculation, the challenge is to use facts to support your claims. Don't hesitate to reference past statements or positions made by either of these individuals to illustrate your points.
There is no minimum length required for this memo but it should be as comprehensive as possible.
Please draft your assignment according to the prescribed memorandum format: 0.5-inch margins on top and bottom and 1-inch margins, left and right; Arial 12-point font; with your name on each page of the document.
