I will retire Ruggles, Lincoln, and Johnston.

Draft Robert Walker. 

@Leuser Ruggles is a Senator and not a handcard. Dropping Senators doesn't help in opening a spot.

Also RJ Walker is for the 1828 draft. The 1824 draft picks are on the top of the statesman list as always.

I'll drop Wolf instead of Ruggles and draft Rives for you so we can keep this going. 

@WVProgressive is up. You will need to retire one statesman to draft.

US House Elections

Democrats surged in the US House! The Democrats now have a veto-proof dominance in the US House. Speaker Langdon Cheves will be able to dominate legislation single-handedly at least until midterms! 

Following Elections! 

To speed this up, because of the delay, fill out the following (Check the Officer page and senators before proposing statesmen, so you don't take someone out of office):

  1. Propose one Whig/Federalists to run for House Minority Leader. Henry Clay is the incumbent, and you can endorse him.
    1. Any challenger will need at least 2 voting power and either leadership or organization. 
  2. Propose one US Focus Rep
    1. Any nominee must have at least 1 voting power and have either Leadership, Charisma, Theocrat, or Reformer
  3. Nominate on statesman for Focus Governor for each region 
    1. Any nominee must have at least 1 executive ability.
    2. Current regions are: New England, Mid-Atlantic, Upper South, Deep South, Midwest, and Great Plains. 

I'll automove tonight for anyone that hasn't moved.

House Minority Leadership

Henry Clay gains enough endorsers to secure the House Minority Leader spot. 
 
Focus US Rep
 
James Monroe, John Randolph, W Findlay. 
 
James Monroe easily wins the Focus Rep spot by 3 points. 
 
Focus Governors
 
New England: Edward Everett, JQ Adams, Henry Dearborn. 
 
Edward Everett barely edges out JQ Adams. 
 
Mid-Atlantic: Theodore Freylinghuysen, Smith Thompson, Jacob Brown
 
Th Freylinghuysen wins the tie-breaker roll against Jacob Brown. 
 
Upper South: John Marshall, Willie P Mangum, William Carroll
 
WP Mangum is the only nominee that doesn't roll a 1. Low voter turnout. 
 
Deep South: William CC Claiborne, John Forsyth, Arthur Bagby, G McDuffie
 
McDuffie wins tiebraker with Bagby
 
Midwest: WH Harrison
 
Harrison wins uncontested
 
Great Plains: Ninian Edwards, John Miller
 
Miller defeats Edwards in an upset.

Senator Appointments:

@Leuser appoints Deep South

@WVProgressive appoints New England and Mid-Atlantic

@tjones324 appoints Midwest, Great Plains, and Upper South. 

Governors can only appoint senators of their own party (Fed/Whig or Dem/JR). If there are no current vacancies, you can replace the senator with the lowest voting power with one of your party. If there is a vacancy, then you have the option of filling both spots. You can appoint someone of another party only if no people of your party exist for that state. You cannot appoint anyone that is currently holding another office (i.e. only appoint hand cards). 

I'll auto move in the morning if anyone hasn't made their moves.
