Historical Primaries


Recommended Posts

For the original president forever, it was decided to choose elections that were either famous, close, or had a third party candidate.

For this one, I think the created ones should be (mainly) ones who had strong primary challenges.

ANy suggestions?

For me, a few come to mind.

1968-Eugene McCarthy and Hubert Humphrey slugging it out. Could perhaps include RFK but turn him to default off...or figure out a way to have drop out or something. Would pose an interesting twist.

1976- strong Republican primary challenge from Ronald Reagan to Gerry Ford

1980- Teddy Kennedy nearly defeating Carter, Reagan beating off George H.W. Bush

1988-Gary Hart starting off low, rocketing to the top and then fumbling it all

2000-John McCain's insurgency against George W. Bush

Any ideas/comments/suggestions?

1968 is a fabulous idea. I began working on one, but lost all my work for whatever reason. :angry:
