2018 Presidential Election

Not exactly high drama, Democrat's are actually well behaved, they are replicating Republicans this time around. Seaborn shound have teased the v.p. selection process out & done a LBJ act, as most reader's will not know, in 1964, LBJ had well over a month to play around with the Vice-presidential possibilities, he milked it, for all its worth, You had Thomas Dodd, Al Gore Sr., Bobby Kennedy, Hubert Humphrey (the eventual choice), Eugene McCarthy, Adlai Stevenson & Sargent Shriver being put though the ringer. Humiliation on a grand scale, LBJ monopolized the news cycle with the "drama". Seaborn should have given himself more time. I'm sure Franklin Hollis is viewed in wtf terms by now, I blame CJ Cregg for this decision.

Breaking News

Former Congressman and Presidental Hopeful Samuel Wendt is announcing his intentions to run for the South Carolina State Legislature. Wendt who was once seen as a possible Gubernatorial and Senatorial option, had his career dismantled over his battle with Alcoholism. In his announcement speech Mr.Wendt put forward his vision for South Carolina.

"I once ran for President under the Grand Old Party of Abraham Lincoln, I once ran as a Republican who saw a way forward that was clouded under the hatred of the other side, but I am an affirmed Independent. I will not be running for office and a Democrat or a Republican I am running for the State Legislature the same legislature I first started, I want to fight for the ideas of Lower Taxes, a Stronger State of South Carolina, and the protection of Social Security and Medicare." he looks over to his wife and daughters, "I have been fighting a disease for these last few years, and that disease is alcoholism it is a battle I fight through every day, but I have fought this is adversity and I believe I have come out as a better man in the end."

"We cannot allow either party to hold South Carolina stranglehold, as we are a state of great Independence. We were the first state to tell King George NO MORE! We were the first state to secede from the United States, We are a state of great minds and great people. We are a state where a man can start with nothing and he can become something, I don't care whether someone is a Democrat or a Republican. I care if they are a hard worker and a tax payer there are honest men and women on both sides of the aisle, in this time of internal strife among Americans I believe that we must unite to not hamper our legacy in the eyes of our children. I am running for this State Legislature because of our history of working across the aisle, I dont care if I have to work with a Democrat or a Republican I want to make South Carolina a place of unity and of hope. I grew up here 50 years ago, in a time of great agony and hatred among neighbors a time of racism and bigotry I dont care about skin color or political affiliation I care about South Carolina and I care about America."

"I will be running for the first district in the South Carolina state assembly. I am running on being for what South Carolina stands for Fiscal Responsibility and Social Conservatism. We need decency in Colombia and we need decency in South Carolina, that is why we need to elect Sam Wendt to the South Carolina State Assembly."

(First Post, I just love Wendt if anyone has any plans for him or if he's dead or something just tell me and this is gone.) :)
So I was kind of underwhelmed by the lack of upkeep in the House of Representatives list since the (original) thread's earliest days.

So I went through the original thread, double-checked to see if those incumbents listed in the 2011 list have been established as having been elected to/ran for other offices, retired, etc. and if their replacements have been named. In case they haven't, I've taken the liberty of generating some replacements who took office when their previous holder was established to have left (or when the seat was created in the redistricting following the 2010 Census).

I've listed the whole House below, and fit the calculations of the current House (234 D/200 R/1 Ind) to the PVI of the House seats without previously-listed incumbents to determine which party the replacements belong to.

Each rep is listed with their date of taking the seat, if they were established has having been in a previous seat (i.e.- if they got redistricted into a new one) and, if applicable, the date when they were first elected to the House (i.e- they have served non-consecutive terms).

Thank you lord caedus.
It's my fault for not keeping the House up to date. I have kept the Senate & Gubuterioal races going, but for some eason, I let the 2012 House Races slip through without a full update.
Again many thanks.

Reese draws outrage for skipping first day of Democratic convention to speak at White House summit

With the Democratic National Convention kicking off today, the Democratic Party leadership hopes that the convention would be a unification to bury animosities stirred up by the primary campaign between presumptive nominee Sam Seaborn and main challenger Andrew Thorn have, at least temporarily, been derailed by the decision of Congresswoman Joan Reese to skip the first day of the convention to appear at the White House Summit on Working Families. Reese gave brief remarks praising President Walken and Vice President Clark for their "willingness to listen" to advocates for working-class families and backed the White House's late-term push for further tax credits for parents making less than 200% above the federal poverty line.

Reese, who represents Ohio's 2nd congressional district, was a vocal supporter of Senator Thorn during the primaries and has offered only tepid public support to Senator Seaborn following the latter's victory in the primaries. Her congressional district voted strongly for President Walken in 2014, and Reese has maintained a friendly relationship with the White House since joining Congress in 2013.

Liberal activists have slammed the appearance as a "betrayal" and "tacit endorsement of the GOP ticket". Former New Jersey governor Kate Crossley, who has appeared as a Seaborn surrogate in several media venues in the past two months, called for House Speaker Daniel Maddox to strip Reese of her committee assignment for disloyalty. "There is no place in the Democratic Party for someone who gives political cover to a White House that has worked to undermine the system that working-class people and families have relied upon for decades."

Reese's office issued a statement saying that the appearance was "a non-partisan show of support for American families and example of [Reese's] tireless work on behalf of working families in her district" and should not be perceived as an endorsement of the Republican ticket. The statement did not say whether Reese would attend the convention in Cleveland, although her office has informed NBS that Reese is going to be in Ohio for the remainder of the week.

Hollis Having “Second Thoughts”

On the eve of the Democratic National Convention, the Vice-Presidential nominee, businessman Franklin Hollis is reportedly having “significant second thoughts” about accepting the position and has reportedly had to be talked into staying on the ticket on at least two occasions since he accepted Sam Seaborn’s offer.

The reports that form the basis of a Washington Post report by Matthew Rook have led to wild speculation that Hollis may not make the key note speech that he has scheduled for the convention, though this was dismissed as “ridiculous’ by DNC executives this afternoon.

Mr Rook says his sources are extremely credible and come from both he Hollis camp and senior figures within the Seaborn campaign.

There is no doubt that the Hollis pick has proven to be, at best, a headache for Seaborn. There have been frequent clashes over scheduling, messaging and the role that Hollis will take on should the pair be elected. Despite the clashes the reports by Rook are the first indication that relations had gotten so bad, his story suggests it’s been weeks since the nominee and his Vice-Presidential choice have even spoken. Rook quotes a campaign source as saying “The Senator simply had enough of thirty minute meetings lasting four hours and 9am meetings starting at midday. They didn’t seem to agree on anything.”
The Hollis decision seems to be coming back to bite Sam’s campaign now. If he does decide to back out then they’re going to have to scramble to find a new choice.
How about a certain New Hampshire Governor.

I'm not sure that would be a good choice. He's already being hit with being too close to President Bartlet, so it would likely just backfire on him. He'll either need to go with someone from the Thorn wing or maybe the individual who should've been his choice in the first place in Senator Robinson.


If CJ really was responsible for the Hollis decision then she's in a LOT of hot water with Sam right now...

If I would have to guess, CJ is trying to stay out of his way right now and making sure that she not about to lose her spot in the campaign. I could see Josh getting ready to take a bigger role in it all right now.

Not a good start for the Democrats in Cleveland as Liz Bartlett snubs Santos & Fitzsimmons in endorsement of Seaborn

It cannot be said that that the Democrats have started their convention with a flourish, with two negative stories dominating the media coverage prior to the official opening last night, that of Ohio Congresswomen Joan Reese who was at the White House for a summit on Working Families appearing alongside President Walken and Vice-President Clark on the day the Democratic convention opened in her own state and strong rumours that Franklin Hollis might not take the VP slot despite already being chosen four months ago.

Then once the convention kicked off, it seemed things would get better, DNC Chairman Stephen Collins gave a decent opening speech, then came New Hampshire Governor and former First Daughter, and Co-Chair of the Seaborn campaign Liz Bartlet. In a passionate speech she said that the "country had gone backwards under President Walken" whilst calling Senator Seaborn "the man who can build on my Father's legacy" before adding" I have known Sam Seaborn for over twenty years and I can state categorically that he is the best nominee this party has had since my father". Wait a minute the press corps seemed shocked "she has just ignored President Matthew Santos and Senator Jimmy Fitzsimmons". Bartlet said afterwards that her words had been misunderstood, but it was clear from supporters of Senator Andrew Thorn that they where furious "I think Governor Bartlet needs a history lesson" New York Congressman Mark Jenks told NBS afterwards alongside North Carolina Congressman Greg Vendor who said the speech "could have been written by the Republicans, President Santos was a great President and Senator Fitzsimmons got within two electoral college votes of the Presidency, now neither man's legacy seems to mater".

Breaking News: Long Time NFL Star Orlando Kettles Announces Retirement

Orlando Kettles the NFL star who was going into his 13th Season has announced his retirement, Kettles a D.C. native who starred at Ohio State for 3 seasons before leaving for the NFL was picked 15th overall in the 2006 NFL Draft by The New York Jets, Kettles who was an All-Pro 4x and a 6 time Pro Bowler, was a stay at Right Tackle in the league. This retirement leaves a big hole for the Jets on the Offensive they will have to fill.
Well well, I'm not going to be the one to say to Sam Seaborn, "I told you so" but remind me later. How did he not see that the Hollis selection might come back as a big negative? Seaborn may have spun it as thinking "outside the box", but it was reckless & a touch of hubris if not downright naive. Maybe if Josh Lyman had a more prominent role in the inner circle, then C.J. Cregg may have not been the only person offering advise. Andrew Thorn should have been at least considered. His selection would have gone a long way to unifying the party. If I was Seaborn I would have Thorn waiting in the wings, encourage Hollis to withdraw, and get Thorn in there. Maybe Jimmy Fitzsimmons might be useful. This needs to be fixed. Also Lyman needs to be given a more high profile & meaningful role in the campaign. I would reduce Creggs role, not substantially as she has some good instincts. But Cregg's role in making the Hollis choice happen in my view was a doozy.
Josh is known as the best mind in the Democratic Party, I think he would have a very prominent role in Seaborns campaign. The nominee in 14 wasnt great so they really need to show Seaborn is young and handsome and has new ideas.
