My Confederate Series – 1873

My Confederate Series – 1873

In 1867, General Robert E. Lee was elected President of the Confederate States. He chose to keep many members of the Davis administration, with Vice President Alexander Stephens being reelected and Secretary of War John C. Breckinridge being appointed Secretary of State. But on October 12, 1870, President Lee died from the effects of pneumonia shortly after suffering a stroke, elevating Stephens to the Presidency. President Stephens has chosen not to run for the Presidency in his own right, leaving Secretary Breckinridge as the front-runner to become the next President as the country’s economy seems to be taking a dive.  Candidates are as follows:

Democrats

  • Sec. of State John C. Breckinridge
  • Sec. of the Treasury Robert M.T. Hunter
  • Spkr. Thomas Bocock
  • Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest

United States-2020 (v 1.8)

United States – 2020 (1.8)

After winning the 2016 in an upset, Trump faces some challenges from within the party and from outside of the party. The Democratic side is wide open after they experienced gains in Governorships and were able to keep the Senate at 52-48 in the 2018 midterms.

V 1.8

  • Colorado Governor is now Jared Polis
  • Connecticut Governor is now Dan Drew
  • Tennessee Governor is now Diane Black
  • New Issue
    • North Korea
  • A couple % changes for the general election
    • Basically only moved some of the margins for the “blowout” states
    • Turnout 65% –> 60%

V 1.7.8

  • Jim Justice is now the Republican Governor of West Virginia
    • Center -> Center-Right
    • Democrats 25 ->0
    • Trump 0 ->50
  • Nevada Junior Senator is now Jacky Rosen.
  • New Candidates:
    • Democrats
      • Rep John Delaney (ON)
    • Republicans
      • Sen Jeff Flake (OFF)
  • Removed a couple interviewers that are no longer on the air such as O’Reilly & Van Susteren
  • Jill Stein (Green) OFF -> ON

V 1.7.7

  • Governor of Massachusetts in the scenario is Charlie Baker, the incumbent Republican
  • Made a few % changes.
  • The following candidates are now “Off” by default
    • Rand Paul
    • Tom Cotton
    • Al Franken
  • No new candidates or issues in this update.  Hope to add a few more candidates & revamp issues in the next update.

V 1.7.6

  • Gov. Joseph P. Kennedy -> Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy
    • The Governor of Massachusetts in the scenario now is Gov. Jay Gonzalez
  • Made a few more changes to attributes and %’s.

V 1.7.5

  • Fixed bug in the Vice Leader ID for Duckworth allowing a Duckworth running mate and an additional Duckworth surrogate.
  • Added Endorser Charlie Sykes- Conservative Radio host from Wisconsin
  • Added Oprah Winfrey as a Democratic candidate

V 1.7.4

  • Fixes changes color, starting funds, attributes & %’s for Sen. Joni Ernst.

V 1.7.3

  • Alabama Junior Senator is now Luther Strange
  • Illinois Governor is now Christopher Kennedy
  • Res Tillerson is still an endorser but I have removed his surrogate.  If he is a sitting SOS he would be unable to hit the campaign trail for partisan purposes.
  • Gave Al Franken a bit of a boost in the Democratic primary.  His profile has risen over the first month of the DJT presidency and he already does have decent name recognition for a junior Senator of a medium size state.

V 1.7.2

  • This update fixes the endorser error
    • Big thank you to Anthony on this one

V 1.7.1

  • Sen. David Vitter -> Sen. John Neely Kennedy

Republic of Texas 2026

republic-of-texas-2026

In 2022, frontrunner and Tea Partier Ted Cruz won the Presidency. However, shortly after reaching the pinnacle of his political career, Texas’s economy plundered, and so did his approval ratings. Only 18 months into his Presidency, the unemployment rate has skyrocketed to 15% and Cruz has Texas on the brink of war with the United States, resulting in a very poor approval rating hovering around 25%. Because of this, many Tea Partiers have disavowed President Cruz and most members have ditched the party for the Republicans.  Even his Vice President, Ken Paxton, is considering a run against him.  The candidates are as follows:

Tea Party

  • President Ted Cruz
  • Vice President Ken Paxton (undecided)
  • Territorial Senator Debra Medina

Republicans

  • Governor and former Vice President John Ratcliffe
  • Governor Scott Turner
  • Mr. Salem Abraham
  • Territorial Senator Blake Farenthold (former Tea Party candidate)
  • Secretary of Agriculture Sid Miller
  • Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Wallace B. Jefferson
  • Territorial Senator Pete Olson
  • Governor Four Price
  • former U.S. Representative Will Hurd
  • former Texas State Representative and Speaker Joe Straus
  • Governor Glenn Hegar
  • Territorial Senator Jeff Leach
  • Territorial Senator Jason Villalba

Progressives

  • former Governor Mike Rawlings
  • Senator Joaquin Castro
  • former Mayor of Houston Annise Parker
  • Governor Mary Gonzalez
  • Territorial Senator Borris Miles
  • Mr. Alex Mendoza

Blue Dogs

  • former Governor Ivy Taylor (former Progressive Party candidate)
  • Territorial Senator Filemon Vela Jr.
  • former U.S. Representative Pete Gallego

Reform Party

  • Mr. Ross Perot Jr.
  • Mr. Chris Keniston (off) (Perot’s running mate in 2022 and presumed running mate in 2026)

Texas Independent Party

  • Petty Officer Marcus Luttrell

Libertarians

  • Mayor John Ramsey
  • Mr. Rodney Caston

Green Party

  • Mrs. Kat Swift (former Progressive Party candidate)

 

Note:  This is my final Republic of Texas scenario.  My idea is that Joaquin Castro wins this election and, shortly thereafter, negotiates the annexation of Texas back into the United States.

2020- President Trump (v1.1, 12/07/2016)

President Trump:

 

Donald Trump shocked many with his 2016 Election victory, the 2020 Election looks to be even crazier. Donald Trump started off his presidency off with a bang, he’s built the wall and we’re back in Iraq. Will Trump run for re-election? Will he win again in a Reaganesque manner, or be humiliated by a Democratic Challenger?

The Republican party base loves the President, most of the GOP senators and representatives have been forced to embrace Trump. They gave Trump 100,000 troops in Iraq, a fairly moderate agenda, and unemployment is at 5.1%. Will “the Donald” run again? Can the Democratic party nominate a winning candidate?
