I played the 1860 election as Sam Houston and the Constitutional Union Party. I took a quick, and unbeatable, lead in the primaries; the general election, though was less clear-cut.
On the last day of the campaign, it looked like this…
Sam Houston/ Edward Everett (CUP) - 36.4% popular vote, 112 votes
Abraham Lincoln/ Edward Bates (GOP) - 25%, 105
Stephen Douglas/ Benjamin Fitzpatrick (DEM) - 13.9%, 0
John Breckinridge/ Daniel Dickenson (SDM) - 23.1%, 45
Undecided - 1.5%, 39
Throughout the campaign, Breckinridge and Houston raised the most money, whist Douglas never seemed to raise much
