    To be fair, I did pick the 1982 senate election since the West Wing wiki states that Vinick was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1982.

    One can only dream that could happen OTL haha.
    I'm trying to find a way to set it up ITTL that the typical voter apathy and decreased voter turnout in off-year/special elections that typically hurt Dems OTL is a Republican and Libertarian problem ITTL

    Whoops. I knew I forgot something. Second "Georgia Murphy" should in fact be just [anyone else tbh]

    Each of the 23 Western United States has anywhere from 5 to 1 deputies of the peace which they elect to serve three year terms. The 1996 Deputies of the Peace elections were held on the first day of the last month of the year as stipulated in the Western United States Constitution. All thirty-eight seats were eligible for contesting, though four of the seats were uncontested for the popular incumbent deputies. (New Mexico, Missouri, Iowa and Wyoming) The Cowboy party opted to nominate Texan Deputy of the Peace Ann Richards for the position of Supreme Deputy, attempting to win control over from the Californian rival of Ronald Reagan.

    One Concern along the trail was the somewhat concerning fear of Reagan's health, which had seemed to have been failing in recent years. He would refute these claims hard and be seen on the campaign trail stumping for his allies nearly weekly, albeit with a slight pain in his left hand that he kept sealed from the cameras. Soon after this, he would blame the Richards campaign for "slandering the health of a poor old man." and attacked the "rotten bitch" that had attempted to exploit his age for political purposes. many of the polls in many of these states indicated easy wins for more incumbents from both parties.

    The slate of five sheriffs belonging to the Cowboy Party were forbidden by the Western High Courts from actively campaigning and also declared Cowboy members safe seats in their entirety, with the judges on the court even offering to stand guard themselves outside of postal stations armed with large nuclear weapons on sticks for safe keeping. This offer of nuclear weapons was hastily rejected and counter offered with just a single stick with smaller nukes in them, to which the judges accepted as "adequate poll protection from the Westies."

    On election night, there was a slightly higher than expected turnout ratio for the elections, with them being overshadowed by the much larger cabinet declarations from President-Elect Michael Gorbachev's Communist Party. It only took one seat to have South Dakota actually be relevant in the realm of political discourse. The seat was held by a long time Western Expansion Ally named Alexander Haig. The incumbent justice of the peace found the campaign trail to be harder once he actually traveled on it, forgetting the names of his children in an infamous gaffe.

    The opposition candidate named Tom Daschle had ran a very effective insurgency campaign planked on populism and judicial communism, two voting bases that had memories fresh of filling out ballots for the communist candidate in the presidential election. Daschle and Haig presented two differing opinions and outlooks for the state's judges, Daschle promised tougher immigration reform within Dakota while Haig offered instead to lessen the restrictions on the Indians which sometimes raided the great plains from Canadian fascist cells.

    Both men spoke well during the debates, and come election night once again Haig seemed to be leading comfortably until more cowboy leaning counties were called...and called...and called until by a small handful of 7,000 votes saw Daschle upset Haig's reelection chances. The upset victory in Dakota made many outside the judicial chambers curious as to the upcoming vote for leader, which was now tied 19 to 19 with Reagan and Richards respectively. To iron out any draws, a coin toss was made and the Supreme Deputy position was kept with Ronald Reagan.

    Imho it's too altered from the Seville arms of azure, bordure gules, 3 fleurs de lys or.
    Much better to have the Seville arms as an escutcheon over Florida.
    At the very least remove the bordure as it looks like a cadet branch of Florida.

    Thanks for the suggestion! This is the first coat of arms I've ever made, so I know it isn't anything to be proud of. I'm probably not going to be making any more coat of arms for the foreseeable future but I'll take in your feedback if I make any in the future!

    The post-dictatorship, reconstructionist vibe, if you will.

    But why is William McRaven's home state Texas?

    I very much liked the post dictatorship feeling and definitely the portraits seem interesting.

    I think a full Wikipage would be great for this.

    I've whipped up another batch of infoboxes showing Canada's three smaller parties (with representation in the legislature)
    [​IMG]
    Union Nationale came around in 1936, formed by those who thought the PDC had become too moderate. the PDC had lost the 1932 and 1938 presidential elections to the PSP and their was little fate they could win the 1944, in the first round of the 1944 Presidential Election the PSP received the most votes, with the Union Nationale in second and the PDC in third, meaning the second round was between the PSP and Union Nationale, surprisingly Union Nationale candidate Maurice Duplessis won the 1944 election, and served as the only Union Nationale president until 1950. Since Duplessis' controversial presidency,Union Nationale has not won any national or provincial elections although they have served as coalition partners in some provincial governments. Ever since the party's decline they have gone between being a National Conservative and Integralist/Fascist party, although for the past 20 years they have been more National Conservative.

    The Left Front was created in 2008 by Jean-Luc Melenchon and his allies as an alternative to the increasingly moderate PSP, and was able to attract well known politicans like Gilles Duceppe to the party. The party supports environmentalism and socialism, and has gained more popularity in recent years.

    Henri Perot, a Business Magnate from Ouachita ran under the newly formed banner of the MPLR in the 1992 Presidential Election, in the most shocking result since the 1944 Presidential Election, the MPLR beat out the PDC too go up against the PSP in the second round. Perot again shook the nation when he was able to win the 1992 Presidential Election. Perot's presidency was decently popular but failed to get much done without having any base in the National Assembly or Senate, causing him to dip in popularity. In the 1998 General Election, Perot took a seat in the National Assembly in his hometown of La Salle which he held until 2004 when he did not run for re-election, and his seat and party leadership was taken by his son, Gabriel Perot. In 2010, the MPLR was reduced to a single seat in the National Assembly, and the party has often been criticized for its cult like following for Perot, and polls indicate Gabriel Perot is likely to loose his seat in the upcoming 2019 General Election.

    I love that the Dakota tidbit is important enough to include in the opening paragraph of the article
