 Tragically, Bluth would be murdered while campaigning in his home state of Arizona in a shooting spree (Tuscon Massacre). Adhering to both Bluth'​s wishes as well as a concession to President Yankee, Patrick choose Alexis Papadopoulos as his new VP nominee. Together they would go on to win a sizable electoral victory against Eagle Party Nominee Theodore Crow (E-IA). Tragically, Bluth would be murdered while campaigning in his home state of Arizona in a shooting spree (Tuscon Massacre).

 +=== The Patrick Presidency === 
 +
 +A darkhorse candidate, indeed, never holding high office before, Seattle Mayor John Patrick could have been an anemic President. ​ Fortunately,​ several capable aides (Kar Thorn, Chelsea Jordan and Katherine Tyminsky) would quickly dispel any doubt that a Mayor couldn'​t handle the responsibilities as President.
 +
 +President Patrick passage of tax reforms reduced their burden on the lower and middle classes, and the hotly disputed **Dabford-Richards Labor Law** greatly empowered union rights to organize and strike. ​ Unfortunately,​ as a result of this law, business elites completely sided against Patrick, leading to a media siege of the Presidency.
 +
 +Adding to this volatile situation was the political rise of a maverick moderate, Chris MacLohain (Sen-MT). ​ Growing in prominence in the years of Kevin Yankee, MacLohain promptly pounced on the wide and lukewarm support of President Patrick. ​ Unable to ride the tide he had created, the Falcon movement was joined by several Eagles as a serious effort to offer another means to oppose President Patrick.
 +
 +As both of these issues grew, a series of scandals rocked Washington. ​ The St. Louis Police connected Infrastructure Secretary John G. Galen to an act of prostitution. ​ FBI investigators discovered that the Attorney General, Abraham Joles, had quashed previous investigations. ​ If this was not all enough, Illinois Governor Randall Sparkman was revealed to be misappropriating government monies, possibly in connection with Galen.
 +
 +And then somehow, both issues took each other out.  Questions from the President over a lack of High Speed Rail monies were spun into Presidential involvement in the scandal, and a member of the Swollen Falcon caucus demanded impeachment. ​ The Media, initially fully supportive of the move to legally lynch the President, had somehow overlooked the baselessness of their reporting.
 +
 +The Falcons, thus humiliated, ended by returning to pre-Falcon ranks, more than happy to bury any involvement in proposing Impeachment on a whim.  The Media, chastened by popular outrage, sacked some of its top management. ​ For his part, Chris MacLohain became an independent.
 +
 +With a still hostile media and popularity remaining too low, the Freedom Party is doomed to lose somewhat in Congress. ​ The question is, how much?
