Washington
The US Political RP




"The purification of politics is an iridescent dream. Government is force. Politics is a battle for supremacy. Parties are the armies."

John James Ingalls







Through the year, candidates have fought and struggled, pandered and speechified, debated and legislated their way forward, and it all comes down to this. The October leaves fall, and the fateful date of election is within sight.

Senators, Representatives, Governors-all will on November the Eighth see where their future lies-and for the highest office in the land, that of President, the people await their chance to cast the ballots that will change the course of the nation, put a new face behind the Resolute Desk-and bring a new regime to power in Washington.

But even as the election draws near, the wheels of politics still turn in their machinations. Struggles for power, influence, and respectability interlace throughout the nation's capitol-ambition is currency, and politicians are cashing in-their success or failure-is up to you.

Join us, as Senator or Representative, Governor or Mayor, pundit or secretary-all are welcome. Fight for your ideals-or fight for your power in the ever-changing game of Washington.

All that is left is to take your first step on the twisting path, take up the application, and forge yourself a character who will be written of in the books of history...but what they will say, who can tell?

The nation is ready for you. Don't keep her waiting.'


Rules


1- OP is Lord and the Co-OP's are the princes. Their word is law. Follow it.
2- No RL characters Or at least no celebrities. That's no Donald Trump. I knew you were aching to play Trump, but that's no-no. On this note, RL politicians post-Reagan do not exist, or have been replaced with generic stand-ins. Records and history are the same, including statistics, save in the places where player-characters have brought about a change.
3- Post when you can-warn us if you can't.. A post per week is a good minimum standard, but we understand that real-life gets in the way.
Especially if you're interacting with someone, let us now if you plan to leave, or take a hiatus. We don't expect perfect posts, but unless you're in a conversation, keep one-liners to a minimum.
4- Respect your fellow players. Play nice. If you don't have friends, you won't have fun.
5- No godmod/flawless/perfect characters Give them some flaws. No one has fun when everyone is perfect.
6-No cheat-edits Typos are one thing, but don't try to change what was done IC because you don't like it. You can appeal if you want to, but don't try to change what already happened.
7- If you are not sure if something is legal, ask OOC first. Always better to check-and there is limited leniency for things that are obviously bad.
8-No assassination attempts. You can probably look for a loophole there-don't. In essence, no use of extreme physical force against another player, or anything like poison. If you and another both agree, contact an OP, and it will be discussed-unilateral action is strictly forbidden.
9-No spite characters. You may hate Democrats, and want to make a Senator who will have scandals on them-don't. Complex characters are fine, but having your character actively sabotage their own party/demographic out-of-character is forbidden.
10-No metagaming. This takes two forms-first, using OOC knowledge that you have but your character could not in the IC, and second, attempting to "engineer" a character specifically to do something in relation to specific aspects of another character or a situation. Hiccups aside, keep OOC and IC separate. Similarly
11-Keep OOC comments out of the IC. We have a whole thread set aside just for that reason. Putting and leaving OOC comments in parenthesis degrades the quality of the RP, wholly OOC posts in the IC are right out. Bring up any issues in the OOC, or TG the OP.
12- Have fun! Misery is illegal.

Applications

Note that Applications are closed for 2016 candidates. You can, however, freely apply as a politician either elected in another year, or planning on running in a future year.

This has been one heck of a year for politics, loyal viewers. Let's take a look at just what you missed...

When the primaries started, neither party knew just what it was doing. The Republicans were stacked head-to-toe, with half a dozen and more candidates vying for attention, and fighting on the stage, while their opposites in the Democratic Party struggled to put forward a competitor, with late-night host Dick Kirk taking Iowa. In the weeks leading up to Super Tuesday, the Republican field thinned, and the Democratic one grew, until both sides had four competitors: far-right Republican Speaker of the House Jay Garestaer, populist Senator Matteos Egazarian, neoconservative populist Eric Gonzalez, and philanthropist Cal Reed for the Republicans staked out their claims as major candidates, while on the Democratic side hard-left New Hampshire Governor Irina Kuznetsov, ex-Republican and Ohio Senator Gianna Carrollton, eccentric Indiana Governor Kailen Murray, and "socialist" Vermont Governor Robert Danders duked it out.

Before Super Tuesday, however, Superstorm Bonnie struck the East Coast, the most powerful hurricane to make landfall since Katrina. Reed was the first to suspend his campaign, and others followed, while Governor Kuznetsov made trips up and down the East Coast-leading to an ugly spat between her, Carrollton, and Murray that resulted in Governor Murray dropping out of the race-and a new competitor, Mayor Jeremy Beaumont of New York, stepping in to take his place at the second debate.

Super Tuesday came, and went, with Senator Carrollton, expected to win handily, falling to a narrow second behind Governor Kuznetsov, while Cal Reed eked out a similarly small victory on the Republican side. The primaries raced on, while, in Washington, scandal brewed.

Ex-Speaker of the House Jay Garestaer was appointed Secretary of State by the President-only for him to later claim he was forced into the position. As scandal brewed, two simultaneous scandals broke-Secretary Garestaer was revealed to have made an attempt to have child services confiscate Reed's newborn daughter, and the NSA was discovered to have been used for spying on political opponents. Between this revelation, Bonnie, and a host of failures, including Turkey being removed from NATO in a near-unilateral action, the President's approval ratings began to plummet.

The Democratic primary remained contested, Mayor Beaumont missing his chance at a leader after a disastrous gaffe in a debate, where he, to prove his generosity, offered to write up a check to charity on-stage, an act for which he was lashed at by Governor Kuznetsov. Kuznetsov and Carrollton constantly danced back and forth in the top two slots-while Murray re-entered the race, winning Florida with a key endorsement. On the Republican side, Senator Egazarian struggled through one of his worst weeks, unfortunate statements and revealed falsehoods plaguing him, made all the worse when he began to fight with fact-checkers. Reed pulled into the lead, a lead which slowly began to expand.

Then came the greatest legislative fight since the Affordable Care Act-and perhaps greater. Senator Carrollton, a rare pro-life Democrat, repeatedly hammered in the debates for not doing enough for women, pushed forward the "Women's Alternative Choices" bill-a bill that cut all funding to abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood. The fight was ugly-and became uglier after Carrollton, squeezing together a small cadre of conservative Democrats and Independents, passed the bill with no room to spare. The President rejected it-and took the opportunity to break with all decorum, and personally attack several of the Senators who passed it. The situation only grew worse when the President did so again at a veteran's dinner-and the party began to fragment, the establishment, Governor Danders's hard left, the new Democrats, and Carrollton's blue dogs. Attempts at reconciliation generally made the problem worse-and throughout, Mayor Walton, the likely Green nominee, hammered the WAC with all she had, coming to national notoriety when the new Speaker, Robert Eberhardt, held an "American Unity" event before the Washington Monument, inviting speakers from all parties to attend and speak about healing.

The shock came when the President broke down, defying his own establishment to sign the bill, with amendments. Regulations were passed, and all federal funding for abortion was struck away, from a Democratic bill, signed by a Democratic President. The party rebelled in anger, Winston's approval ratings fell to points not seen since 2008-while Senator Carrollton continued to stand by her bill. Secretary Garestaer, on the Republican side, left the country for Turkey-seeking asylum, and not returning.

Carrollton began to struggle mightily in states, and it appeared that Governor Kuznetsov finally had a clear shot at the nomination-until the mid-forties women suffered a stroke, and entered a coma. The primaries carried on without her, as Mayor Beaumont and, especially, Governor Danders gained steam, with Governor Murray languished. Weeks later he would abandon the party, and throw his support behind the Green nominee.

On the Republican side, Senator Gonzalez faded, as the pair of populist Senators split their vote, and Cal Reed pushed onward. That he would finish in first, at this point, was certain-whether he could attain a majority to avoid a contested convention was another question altogether, as the Republican candidates refused mounting pressure to drop out of the race. Cal, for his part, essentially suspended his primary campaign, beginning aggressive steps for the General election, including foregoing the final debate.

With Kuznetsov and Carrollton flailing, and the party aching, yet another split occurred, cleaving apart one of the factions of the party, when California Governor Ray Ramirez pushed for, and got, the extremely late entrance of Senator Anthony Conti into the race. A contested convention seemed likely-now even more so, and while Florida Governor Esperanza Huerta criticized Ramirez harshly, Conti was in the race to stay.

Governor Kuznetsov eventually recovered, but seemed to have lost her luster, while Carrollton returned to the campaign trail, struggling. With Egazarian struggling, and Gonzalez having all but abandoned his campaign, Cal Reed clinched the nomination a week before the final primaries-while the Democrats split yet again, Mayor Beaumont deserting the party to announce his candidacy as an Independent. Even with this, the final week of primaries went through without a clear victor, with Danders drawing close to the leading two, and Kuznetsov gaining a definite lead-but well below the amount required, even with superdelegates. The Democrats were going to a contested convention.

The weeks after the primaries were characterized by a flurry of early campaigning from Reed, and little activity on the Democratic side, as the party attempted to put itself together. The campaign came to the forefront again when a young woman accused Republican nominee Calvin Reed of raping her, an employee of his-only for documents to be produced showing the woman was never hired. The fake story enflamed tensions, with the Democratic party hammered for the alleged hit. In the legislature, a young Senator from New Mexico, María Antonieta Arroyo Villanueva de Peña, introduced a bill on chemical castration for rapists-one that drew the ire of nearly every Senate Democrat. With the Majority Leader and President Pro Tempore absent, the floor descended into a chaos of argument, Villanueva de Peña against a pack of Democratic Senators, decorum falling by the wayside, while a simultaneous Twitter exchange roared out. The fight lasted days, including a Fox News debate,before the bill was finally hammered through-making it to the President's desk, where it was signed.

Domestically, terror grew as a problem. A massive rally of the New Black Panther party ended in bloodshed, shots fired at police officers leading to a National Guard crackdown that some called a massacre-until other attacks on police broke out across the nation. The perpetrator, Abubakr Ibrahima, was captured by VDF forces under Governor Abelard Bell, but another attack, even more deadly-a bombing in Chicago, followed, and then the subsequent attempted assassination of Illinois Senator Leanne Harper. Days later, the man, captured, escaped custody, culminating his escape with an attack on the Russian Embassy in Washington D.C. Here though, his luck ran out-fleeing into Virginia, he had the unfortunate distinction of being the second such terrorist captured by VDF and VNG forces.

The year moved on, with the next diversion being a spat on Twitter between Villanueva de Peña and Senator Carrollton, over the latter's praise of Franklin Roosevelt as "perhaps the greatest President", while Villanueva de Peña contested that the allegedly racist FDR deserved no such distinction. The feud heightened when Carrollton brought the Twitter debate to live television, when she responded to the tweets in a CNN interview-and after criticism, agreed to a debate on the matter.

Meanwhile, overseas, problems were brewing. Japanese banks attempted to raise their interest rates over the negative ones they had employed, sending shockwaves through their economy-and then into that of the United States, where markets began to fall.

The first Presidential debate was slated for the middle of the month, July, and took place live, with Calvin Reed and Green candidate Ellen Walton, in some polls higher than the split Democratic candidates, competing, the unchosen Democrats unable to field a candidate. The debate went on to solid ratings, with both candidates generally perceived to have done well, in a generally noncombative format, the two more making their positions known than attacking the other.

Two nights remained before the DNC, where the badly broken Democratic Party, far behind in every major poll, and even sometimes in third, would attempt to put itself back together. Two days before it, however, Senator Carrollton went through with her debate with Senator Villanueva de Peña on Roosevelt-which turned into a disaster. Carrollton was criticized and booed for avoiding questions, and constantly attacked and beaten down by Villanueva de Peña, her counters lacking, or even more controversial. The hammering went on for some time until the debate finally drew to a merciful close, Carrollton badly beaten, Villanueva de Peña, already building on a head of fame after the SNIP bill, soaring.

The Convention, though, was coming, nonetheless, and has now just begun. The first day was capped by controversial statements from the President, the second, with an exhortation to hold to core values by the Governor of Pennsylvania, and the third with then-leading candidate Irina Kuznetsov rushed off stage after freezing before the microphone. The ballot came, went, and failed, and the party rushed to broker its convention. Now, in a shocking turn of events, leading candidate Gianna Carrollton, endorsed by Governor Kuznetsov, turned her back on the likely nomination to endorse Governor Danders, followed soon be Senator Conti, in a dramatic flip-flop that has sent waves of controversy through the political sphere.

The vote finally happened-and happened, and happened, and happened. Ballots were gone through, each one drawing closer to the conclusion-until at last, seven ballots past, the appointment was made-Vermont Governor Robert Danders. The fight over his Vice-President, one Gianna Carrollton, was worse. Some two days of infighting later, she slipped by by the slimmest of margins to be given the spot-an election which triggered Democratic Governor's Association head Norris Vilseck, together with other delegates, to walk out of the convention in protest.

The Green Party followed up the nomination almost immediately with a series of advertisements dominating the airwaves, while the Republican National Convention was just around the corner. The first day was chaotic. Two speeches in, a twitter brawl between three Congressman, one infamous for starting such fights, broke out online-but that paled in comparison to what happened next. Democratic Senator Marcus Green of Hawaii, coming to the RNC, verbally engaged Republican Senator Thomas Nilap on the floor-then struck him. Security managed to seize him before further damage could be done-and there were no permanent injuries, but criticism of the Democrats for sending a fall man to start fights at the RNC poured in. Near-simultaneously, Vermont Gov. Robert Danders, in his first Presidential rally in Philadelphia, site of the Republican National Convention, started with a stumble, calling the city "Las Vegas", and receiving heavy criticism, including being called a "puppet" for endorsing Winstoncare despite acknowledging "massive problems" with it. The Republican convention still held most of the airwaves, however, with another speech, and then a heavily lauded conclusion by Speaker Robert Eberhardt, laying out a comprehensive policy platform, the "Contract with the American People."

The next day started with worse for the Democratic nominee, as, in response to criticism in the Speaker's speech the previous night, he "clarified" his policy positions. Said clarification had barely stood before Sen. Villanueva de Peña broadsided the Governor on Twitter for lying to the people-showing links to videos earlier in the campaign that snared him. The Governor would later apologize for saying something "in the heat of the moment", but Mayor Walton took the opportunity to televise an address to the American people, criticizes the lying and actions of Sen. Green, and proposing an alternative path.

The RNC continued onward, the day being the first in U.S. history to feature all-women speakers in a major party convention. The night was concluded with a thunderous speech from the young and fiery Senator Villanueva de Peña, in the most-watched moment of the convention to that point. Outside the convention, however, more controversy broke. Governor Danders announced that he would be meeting with the President of Taiwan on U.S. soil, which drew a harsh response from China. Further details came to light, with candidates Walton and Reed confirming that they too were invited to, and would attend the meeting, with both them, and others, criticizing Danders for his announcement, on grounds of it sabotaging the negotiations in an attempt at publicity, or that it revealed sensitive details to possible enemies.

On the third day of the convention, Mayor Walton rallied again, promising to keep her pledge for universal healthcare where Danders had dropped it, while the Republican convention spoke on foreign policy, ending with a message from Gov./Adm. Abelard Bell on the characteristics of a leader, and the importance of trustworthiness, which he said that Reed possessed, and Danders did not.

The night before the final day of the convention, new Presidential polling was released, showing that, for the first time in two decades, a third-party candidate was leading one of the major parties, with Mayor Walton passing Governor Danders in the polls.

The Republican National Convention ended with a thunderous speech from the nominee, after choosing liberal Connecticut Senator, and veteran,
Buck Havich as his running mate. Danders responded soon after with a policy speech at Gettsyburg, but one that did not go over particularly well. In the week before the Green convention, defections mounted-Governor Hughes of Michigan was to come back to the Democratic side,
but instead formally joined the Green Party, followed by Maine Senator John Kingston, while the DNC chair resigned following a sex scandal,
replaced by the former DCCC head. The Green convention began unconventionally, in a town hall format introducing Green candidates nationwide. Many of the defectors spoke at the convention, leading into the final day, with California Senate hopeful Reginaldo Alphonsey introducing Mayor Walton, who announced her choice of running mate-Colorado Governor William Denver.

The campaign spun on, Governor Danders falling farther behind, as the Green Party shed its past to become the American Progressive Party, placing candidates in races nationwide. Reed and Walton took their campaigns to the northeast over the coming weeks, stumping for position,
campaigning up until the date of the first post-convention debate, a debate that made history before it even started. Governor Robert Danders had failed to make the debate stage, missing the 15% threshold. For the first time in history, it would be a Republican on-stage facing, not a Democrat, but a Progressive.

The debate became a detailed show of policy from both sides, a point-by-point struggle, in which a strong performance by Walton was nonetheless eclipsed by an exemplary one by her opponent Reed.

The race continues now through September, both sides struggling for advantage, Reed retaining a commanding lead, Walton seeking to close it and Danders attempting to pull himself from the single digits.

The Libertarian Party, though, took it's own woes. Party difficulties led to a long delay of the final primaries and the Convention, and when that convention came, the issues multiplied exponentially. A newcomer, Anita Flores's victory in California and seizing of the lead led to a storm of controversy when the LNC Chair nullified non-registered Libertarian results in California, redistributing many of Flores's delegates to Representative Gerald Breckenridge. Allegations of the Convention being "rigged" immediately rose, and Flores took the stage to condemn the process before leaving the Convention, race, and party, following soon after by Sherman Paulson. In the halls outside the Convention, Breckenridge confronted Paulson, leading to a fight which put Paulson in a coma with internal bleeding in his brain. Flores returned, attacking and knocking out Breckenridge, but the damage was done-the Convention broke off, to reconvene after Breckenridge returned from his hospital bed.

There, Breckenridge gathered the delegates and revealed a stunning development-Victoria DeLucca, an ally of his, and a multibillionaire,
had bribed delegates to vote for Breckenridge though Breckenridge claimed that he had nothing to do with it. Breckenridge attempted to suppress the information of the bribery-something claimed by both Arumb and Flores earlier, but the news was leaked, and broken on Flores's news website, RevolutionTruth, with the effects soon to be seen.

Those effects were, in essence, the shattering of the Libertarian Party. DeLucca told the convention that Breckenridge had threatened her and her family in order to put out the bribes-which Breckenridge denied. The voting process was thrown into chaos-Longwood, the highest remaining "clean" choice, had disappeared from the convention, the four leading candidates had either left the party, had vanished, were under threat of criminal charges, or were hospitalized and unconcious. The fifth, Cassandra Arumb, made a run at the nomination, but failed, and as, by the Libertarian process, candidates were eliminated one-by-one, if became clear that it would be Flores against Breckenridge at the end. A desperate push was made by some delegates to write in Anton Jacques of West Virginia onto the ballots-siphoning enough votes from Breckenridge to hand Flores the nomination-which she promptly denied.

The Convention got worse after that-one Mr. Blythe claimed he accepted the nomination-others contested it, verbal brawls turned into physical brawls, and with the interference of a depleted security force, a fire started in the corner of the hotel, and an excess of pepper spray, the building began to be evacuated in the chaos and violence, a massive police presence and scattered mobilized National Guard units required to keep it down. Thus ended the convention.

Some days after the Convention, on the Senate floor, a fight of words turned into a physical fight of a level not seen since the caning of Sumner.
The bill discussed was DEFACED, a bill to put two women, Harriet Tubman and Susan B. Anthony, on U.S. currency. Senator Thomas Nilap of Alaska, who had previously sparred with Majority Whip Villanueva de Peña on Twitter, charged and slammed the unawares woman into the floor while she was speaking, and began to attack her. The pair struggled and struck each other until Senator Breckenridge managed to move Nilap off of her, with the Sergeant-at-Arms taking him into custody. Despite this, Villanueva de Peña refused to be taken out for medical attention until completing the vote on the bill, which passed narrowly over a Democratic attempt to kill it.

Despite her injuries, that night Villanueva de Peña attended a previously-scheduled and much-anticipated debate between her and Illinois Governor Benjamin Jackson, the two having been at odds online. Villanueva de Peña showed difficulty speaking at length and standing upright and broke into coughing fits multiple times in the debate, but nevertheless earned a decisive victory over the Governor, who was criticized for repeating an earlier-debunked talking point on claiming the Illinois legislature was Republican-dominated, as well as not recognizing his state's current gun laws.

Not three full days since her being attacked on the Senate Floor, Senator Villanueva de Peña found herself in the heart of controversy once again in another fight in that legislative body. Her bill proposed was the WHIP, allowing for flogging as a punishment for first-degree rape, and the floor soon turned into a vicious fight between the Senator and a collection of others, Pennsylvania Independent Demetrius Chandler and Ohioan Republican and Majority Leader Ryan Carter the only other Senators willing to defend her. Villanueva de Peña and House Minority Leader Josephine Stafford fought particularly harshly-finally, the Democratic minority whip moved to end the matter and call a vote, to find the motion blocked. Senator Darnell of Oregon attempted to remove Carter from the floor by citing an arcane rule, and Sen. Stafford led the cause to lock the bill into committee until the end of the session, which Villanueva de Peña fought against, demanding a vote. Eventually, the measure was called for and Villanueva de Peña was forced to filibuster, speaking for the next eleven and a half hours until the end of the session, giving stories of rape victims, and reading casualty reports from the second World War, ending with a harsh criticism of Stafford, and two Republican-caucusing Independents, Ulysses Johnson of Iowa and Alexander Breckenridge of Massachusetts, for their attacks on democracy by refusing to allow a vote-Stafford would be further attacked in a later interview. The session ended without a vote, but with the bill still alive.

The first, and only Vice-Presidential debate was set in Los Angeles California-Connecticut Senator Buck Havich was on-stage for the Republicans, Colorado Governor William Denver for the Progressives, with the Democrats again failing to make the stage. The debate was testy, and largely inconclusive. Havich generally stayed true to policy, but struggled under personal attacks from Denver, particularly on same-sex marriage and healthcare, but reinforced himself on foreign policy. Reviews of the debate were mixed, with the candidates' breaking from their Presidential tickets being the largest surprise, Havich stating support of same-sex marriage, Governor Denver backing the establishment of a no-fly zone in Syria. Regardless of the debate, polls were slowly beginning to narrow-while Reed continued to hold a commanding lead with a near-certainty of taking the White House, Danders and Walton both grew at his expense, his grip on several states beginning to falter.

Down allot races again rose to the forefront as the final weeks before the election slipped by. In Iowa, the Democratic candidate Alexander Valencia's feuding with Senator Villanueva Dr Peña ended with the publication of a controversial video showing him attacking the son of an opposing politician, sparking bylines and late-night and news commentary.

The final Presidential debate, a twin hall, finally arrived, and proved once again to be a close match. On issues of same-sex marriage and education, Walton and Reed clashed, the debate marking a fiercer fight than the earlier two. Both candidates were perceived to have debated well, but consensus handed a slim victory to Reed once again.

Somewhat enhancing the tumult of the downballot-and creating a major story as a candidate, Reed broke with the party line to endorse a Democrat -the conservative Mayor Edgar Brankers, over the incumbent, and liberal, Republican Senator running for re-election.

Then came a sudden shock-an October Surprise. Supreme Court Justice Irina Keegan, one of the Court's youngest members, died suddenly of a heart attack-a condition kept from the public, leaving an opening on the Supreme Court-a chance to change it's ideological balance.

Some days later, on Halloween night, the Casa de Johnson in Los Angeles was play to a party the details of which are likely to be argued over for years to come. Before the party began, headlines were made by Illinois Governor Benjamin Jackson attempting-and failing, to kiss Senator Villanueva de Peña, but of the rest of the night, the tales range from the expected, marijuana present at the party-to the absurd, an undergrond lair of vast treasure beneath the Johnson estate.

The final week before the election comes now, and all candidates strive towards the finish-except one. Breaking news revealed that Senator Gianna Carrollton, running mate of Governor Danders, was rushed to emergency care after an apparent heart attack-her condition still unknown.

At last the night of the election came-a historic night. The Democratic party, struggling, found some hope in a victory in Washington state,
and the successful defense of their Oregon Senate seat-but everywhere else in the nation, it was the Republicans and Progressives that found victories. Progressives captured the Washington governorship, and two additional Senate seats, as well as several in the House, with Ellen Walton becoming the first third-party candidate since 1968 to win a state, taking three, and the District of Columbia, and posting the highest vote total, both in percentage and gross, of any third-party candidate in the history of the United States-while Robert Danders of the Democratic Party became the first-ever Democratic nominee to receive zero electoral votes, winning no states, and under 6% of the popular vote.

The night was, though, a victory for the Republican party. The party took eight of the eleven Governorships up for election, and thirty of the thirty-four Senate seats, their only losses occurring on the West Coast-and in a stunning upset in Ohio. The party reinforced their control of the House of Representatives with a record majority, and on the Presidential side of things-Calvin Reed won a historic victory-taking California by a sliver, the first President since Reagan to do so, ending with 505 Electoral votes, and a record 61.55% of the popular vote.

Walton took to a podium in Seattle to call the election not a defeat for the Progressives, but a record-setting victory against all odds, while the concession speech from Governor Danders, and the victory speech from President-Elect Reed were delivered.

As Congress reconvened, two major pieces of legislation went through-the Declaration of War on ISIS, languishing in the Senate after having passed the House months earlier, and the Budget Act of 2017, a bipartisan effort featuring an across-the-board spending cut paired with funds created for infrastructure and the War on ISIS.

President Winston announced his plans to engage in the war declared, but promised a "different kind" of war-committing only five thousand U.S. troops.
