1792 United States Presidential Election

"Washington's first term has ended. While he has been roundly popular, he is seeing increased criticism over Hamilton's economic policies, an increased pro-British foreign policy, and the growing power of the new federal government. Despite this, both Federalists and Jeffersonian Republicans are urging Washington to run for a second term. Will he do it, and will he be the unanimous choice again?"
