1788 - 1789 United States Presidential Election

"The Constitution has been implemented, and the first president is to be elected. Washington is a shoe-in for the presidency, but who will be his VP? [Note: In this election, the candidate that finishes second in the election becomes VP] This election takes place among economic instability and a revolution in Europe that could further impact trade and stability at home."

- Election Blurb.
