2017 – AL Senate
In January 2017, President Donald Trump tapped Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions to be the next United States Attorney General. Will the GOP hold on to his seat in this deeply Republican state, or will former District Attorney Doug Jones become the first Democrat to represent Alabama in the Senate in over 20 years?
Candidates include Democrat Doug Jones and Republicans Roy Moore, Luther Strange, and Mo Brooks.
I might add the GOP primary later if this generates enough interest. Let me know what you guys think!
Description: Former presidential contender and incumbent Senator Ted Cruz is running for reelection to a second term. He is opposed by Congressman Beto O’Rourke, who is widely seen as a rising star within the Democratic Party. Will Ted Cruz hold on to his seat, or will the much anticipated “blue wave” pull the young congressman across the finish line?
2018 – TX Senate
For twelve long years, the Republican Party has held uninterrupted control of the White House. Despite a great US victory in the Gulf War, unemployment rises throughout the nation. And with opposition from factions of the right and left, as well as the strong third-party campaign of Ross Perot, incumbent President Bush’s reelection chances appear uncertain. Will the United States vote to change course, or will the Republicans continue holding the White House for four more years?
Play as any of several candidates from the ’92 campaign, with hypotheticals!
- Mario Cuomo was widely assumed to be the Democratic frontrunner prior to announcing his intention not to run. What if the liberal New York governor threw his hat into the ring?
- Friction ensued when Bob Casey, the outspoken pro-life governor of Pennsylvania, hesitated to endorse the Clinton/Gore ticket and was not allowed to speak at the Democratic convention. What if Casey himself entered the race?
- Conservative politico Pat Buchanan challenged incumbent President George H.W. Bush and lost. What if he had carried the torch for the GOP?
Features include additional candidates and real-life events, including Perot exiting and reentering the race, Clinton’s infamous “Sister Soulijah” comments, LA riots, and more.
