Fictional Gubernatorial/Senatorial Elections


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I realize that it's been a while since I've been active here but I am going to start making scenarios again. I want to make a number of 'fictional' election scenarios and I've already completed three of them. I have two gubernatorial elections completed (New Jersey and Rhode Island) and one senatorial election (California). I want to make the following scenarios:

Governor

Virginia, Tennessee, Connecticut, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Florida, Massachusetts

Senate

Wisconsin, Colorado, Michigan, Washington, Louisiana, New York

I need your help with the candidates. Please complete the following form with as many candidates as you want! I love making these scenarios so please contribute!

Title: [state Senator, Governor, Lt. Governor, State Rep, Mayor, Congressman, Rep., Senator, Businessman, Actor, Etc.]

Obviously I need a large number of Democrats and Republicans (I want contested primaries for all of these scenarios) but I also want third party candidates. Don't be afraid to add Greens, Libertarians, Independents, etc. My finished scenarios all of three VERY strong Independent candidates so it's definitely fun.

The more candidates, the better the scenario. Once these all are complete, I plan on making a presidential election scenario too. The candidates from these scenarios will be running for the White House!

Starting Funds: $2,500,000

Description: He's the first Republican attorney general in years and now Frederick Lawson is desiring a promotion.

Starting Funds: 1,000,000

Description: Henry Sullivan is famous, or perhaps infamous, in the city of Madison, which he served as Mayor for twelve years. Considered heavy-handed, ruthless, but charismatic and dynamic enough to maintain support (plus having connections to both organized crime and union heads), he practically ruled Madison as a king during his administration; he chose his successor, John Reynolds, and has served as a City Councilman for the past six years. Now, he hopes to get elected to the Senate on his progressive platform and union support.
