Grande today is a popular musical theatre artist in Atlanta. She recently gained wider attention when she performed at Mitch Landrieu's 2018 inauguration and has recently been signed by Turner Records to put out music as a solo artist in the future.

Ariana's parents moved from New York to Florida while her mom was pregnant with her IOTL, does that still apply here, even though New York and Florida are in different countries?

Yes, Florida is the most popular destination for immigrants coming into Dixie which has caused its population to grow much faster than any other state. It went from being the least populous state less than 100 years ago to today the 4th most populous and is expected to overtake North Carolina for 3rd very soon.
 
You should do political party infoboxes for the Unionists and Nationals. I'm really curious to know what their exact ideologies are, because all I can tell so far is that the Unionists are roughly to the center-left and the Nationals are roughly to the center-right

I plan on making them for all the 4 major parties, but I'm still trying to figure out their logos.
 
2018 West Florida State House Elections
2018 West Florida State House Elections

In 2018, the National Party lost their outright majority in the state House of Delegates of West Florida for the first time since 1988. Unionist leader Stacey Abrams (who just recently took over after former leader David Baria resigned his position to successfully run for the Senate) became the new Speaker of the House with support from the Parti La Louisiane and their leader Dale Guillot who became Deputy Leader of the House. The Unionists were able to ride the coattails of presidential candidate Mitch Landrieu who narrowly carried the normally National state. The Unionists and the PLL were also able to ride off the long dissatisfaction of the state's National government, which also helped John Bel Edwards to defeat governor Bill McCollum three years earlier. The State Senate wasn't up for election in 2018 and remained with a National majority. The National Party did however gain the Lt. Governorship in 2018 as incumbent PLL Lt. Gov. Caroline Fayard also successfully ran for Senate only 3 years into her term with her position being filled by the President Pro Tempore of the Senate as dictated by the West Florida Constitution, National member Victor Gaston.

Excellent. But how did Stacey Abrams represented West Florida than Georgia?

I can’t see than expected that I’m going to see the list of prime ministers of Commonwealth of America!

Abrams spent much of her childhood in Gulfport, so this is a TL where she decided to stay there instead of moving on to Georgia.

And hopefully a Prime Minster list gets completed soon. I have a lot of cool ideas for it (though most of them sadly conflict because of people being active in politics at the same time) though Prime Minster Mo Udall is definite for the list.
 
I almost forgot about La Louisiane and the Social Democrats when I mentioned the parties earlier lol

So from what I've gathered so far:
-Unionists are center-left
-Nationals are center-right
-La Louisiane represents Francophone interests
-And the Social Democrats are either left-wing or unplaceable LaRoucheans, I'm not sure which

Did I get anything wrong?

In general yeah you're right.

PLL was a party originally formed in the mid 60's to help break the Unionist Long Machine in Louisiana. It is stronger at the state level and does focus on Francophone issues and while it does have its fair share of liberals and conservative is still pretty center overall.

And LaRouche was uhhhh... let's say a bit less "eclectic" with his ideology ITTL. The Socialist Party was pretty much dead by the 70's and LaRouche was one of the main crew to help shift it into the modern day SDP. Though SDP members today tend to keep LaRoucheans at an arm's length. It's mostly today a party of urban minority leftists who have run the party since the mid-1990's.
 
Interesting premise; nowadays I tend to be pretty leery of independent South TLs (if for no other reason, they tend to be an understandably contentious subject given recent OTL events). However, you get brownie points right off the bat for having a 18th Century POD, which means no Confederate States (yay!). On top of that, your work is pretty amazingly detailed and comprehensive, consider me a watcher :).
