2012 – Alberta

As Premier Alison Redford dropped the election writ, she sets off a 28-day provincial campaign that will send Albertans to the polls on April 23 2012. Redford requested Lt.-Gov. Donald Ethell end the Legislature, setting off what is expected to be one of the most competitive election battles in decades. The 28-day campaign will see the PC leader try to extend her party’s 41-year grip on power, while Danielle Smith of the Wildrose Alliance, Raj Sherman of the Alberta Liberals, Brian Mason of the NDP, and Glenn Taylor of the Alberta Party will all be trying to end the Tory dynasty that started in 1971.

1964 Senate

President Kennedy has been assassinated. The Senate Republicans after a huge blowout in 1958 have been in 1960 and 1962 just keeping parity and trying to avoid becoming irrelevant. Senator Dirksen’s Republicans had nominated and targeted in a number of seats popular Republican candidates. Then Senator Goldwater’s far right candidacy allows him to be nominated for President. Now it’s a race to avoid losing what Senate seats are up and hopefully gain just a few more if it falls just right. Meanwhile, President Johnson wants as many seats available to enact his GREAT SOCIETY program. It begins with the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

May the odds ever be in your favor.

1962 Senate

It’s the dawn of the New Frontier for the first time at the ballot box since the very close 1960 Presidential election. In this scenario you can command Mike Mansfield and the Senate Democrats to protect the momentum for the New Frontier. Or you can be Everett M. Dirksen and try to recapture a decent number of Republican seats. It will be a mountain to recover enough seats (15) to control the U.S. Senate after the landslide for the Democrats in 1958. With 21 Democratic seats up you will have to maintain your 18 seats and then capture the lion’s share of the Democrats. It’s not undoable but will take some serious targeting and use of resources.

May the odds be ever in your favor!

1988 Senate

It’s 1988, and along with a new President, comes a new chance to control the U.S. Senate. In this scenario, you have a popular U.S. President in Ronald Reagan, retiring. He wants to try to wrestle control of the U.S. Senate back to the Republicans for his successor, Vice President George H.W. Bush. The Democrats, who won the Senate in 1986 after losing control of it in 1980, want to hold on and expand their numbers. They also hope to elect Governor Michael S. Dukakis as President. In addition one of their own will be the next Vice President as the junior Senator from Indiana, Dan Quayle, who is prone to gaffes very frequently facing off against the popular Texas senior Senator, Lloyd M. Bentsen.

Alternate History 2016 – United States

In July 2011, President Obama was shot and killed by a white nationalist terrorist, Biden is promptly inaugurated as President for Obama’s last year of his first term. Biden then goes on to win a landslide victory in 2012, getting up to 395 Electoral votes. The majority of mainstream and establishment Republicans decide not to run leaving Trump able to gain the nomination and go on to lose to Biden, as said above. Biden’s Vice President for his 2012 race was Hillary Clinton, Obama’s formal rival. Biden’s 2012-2016 term marked a period of Democrat dominance, with the peak of dominance being Biden introducing a Public Option to Obama-Care in honor of his former friend and boss, Barack Obama. President Biden had made it a publicly known that he would be running again in 2016, until May 2015, when his eldest son died of cancer, which flipped his plans on its head. Biden feels as if he is not in the right emotional state to run in another election, and announces his decision to not seek a second term in July 2015. causing the Democratic Party primary to heat up greatly, matching the heat of the Republican Party primary.

United States – 2024 – Revolting (V1)

Information

This is my third 2024 custom campaign, but unlike the other two, this one is being worked on after the 2020 election happened, this campaign was made in the direct aftermath of the 2020 election, the base of the scenario, the idea of Trump running again and Biden not running, might prove to be laughable inaccurate, if so, just think of this campaign as a December 2020 time capsule about what the 2024 might look like. This campaign is also full of my own quirks and “charm”, such as the portrait styling.

Have fun playing!

Leave in the comments if you have any suggestions, I will take them seriously and might add them to the reworked V2.
