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.

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.

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.

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.
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.
After a tumultuous second term in office, abandoning most of it’s policies from it’s previous government, can Bob Hawke make history and lead Labor to it’s subsequent 3rd election victory? Or will John Howard and the coalition capitalize on the disillusion of labor’s heartland and form Government? (all whilst avoiding the disastrous Joh for Canberra campaign)
During his first term, Biden swore to be a 1 term president in order to capture the progressive vote. Will Biden’s decision to serve as a 1 term president bite the establishment in the back? Will the republicans rally around the never-trump cause or will they give Trumpism another shot?
