2012: Governor Romney elected, defeats President Obama

On November 6th, 2012, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney achieved a stunning victory over the incumbent President Barack Obama. After a long and hard-fought campaign, Romney was able to secure an electoral college win of 275 votes to Obama’s 263.

Romney’s victory speech was passionate and gracious as he thanked his supporters and noted the historic nature of his win. He spoke of the difficult times the US was facing, and how with the American people working together, they could overcome any challenge and achieve great things. Romney also noted the importance of the election and the need to move forward with a common purpose.

He was able to win some of the traditionally Democratic leaning states such as Ohio, Florida and Virginia, putting Obama in a very difficult position.

Romney also won a majority of the independent vote, which was a key factor in his success. He was able to appeal to independent voters with his message of fiscal responsibility and job creation.

Romney’s victory was a clear repudiation of the Obama administration’s policies over the past four years. Despite the President’s best efforts, his policies of increased government spending and higher taxes were seen as too extreme by the majority of the electorate.

Romney’s success in the election was also aided by his running mate, Paul Ryan. Ryan was able to bring his message of fiscal responsibility and job creation to the forefront of the campaign, which resonated with many voters.

Ultimately, Romney’s victory was built on his message of economic growth, fiscal responsibility and job creation. He was able to convince the majority of the electorate that his policies would be better for the country than those of the incumbent President.

It is now up to Romney to fulfill his campaign promises and bring the US back to prosperity. With his resounding victory in the electoral college, he has a mandate from the American people to do so, and the nation will be watching to see if he can deliver on his promises.

BREAKING: DEMS WIN SENATE, GOP WINS HOUSE

The 2014 midterm elections were a watershed moment in American politics. In a stunning upset, the Democrats won control of the Senate while the Republicans won control of the House. This marked the first midterm in the presidency of Republican Mitt Romney and was seen as a referendum on his first two years in office.

The Democrats were able to win control of the Senate thanks to victories in key states. Mark Udall won a hotly contested race in Colorado, while Michelle Nunn, Bruce Braley and Kay Hagan each won Senate seats in Georgia, Iowa and North Carolina, respectively. This enabled the Democrats to gain the majority in the Senate, 53-47.

The Republicans, meanwhile, gained a majority in the House of Representatives, winning 229-206. This was a major upset as the Republicans had been in power since 2010, and the Democrats had been hoping to gain a majority in this election.

The Democrats’ victory in the Senate was a major blow to the Romney administration, as they had been hoping to gain a majority in both chambers of the legislature. However, the Democrats were able to make up ground in the Senate thanks to their wins in key states.

The 2014 midterm elections marked the beginning of a new era in American politics. With the Democrats in control of the Senate and the Republicans in control of the House, it is sure to be an interesting few years ahead. It will be interesting to see how the two parties work together to pass legislation and how this divided government affects the nation’s policy.

BREAKING: CHAFEE ANNOUNCES RUN

On April 3rd, 2015, former Governor Lincoln Chafee announced his intention to run for President of the United States in 2016. Chafee made his announcement at the George Mason University Center for Politics and Foreign Relations in Arlington, Virginia.

"The time is right for a different kind of president: a president who puts people first; a president who is honest and trustworthy; a president who has the experience of both business and government, and the vision to move our country forward," Chafee said in his launch speech.

Chafee is a moderate Democrat who served as the Governor of Rhode Island from 2011 to 2015. He was previously a Republican Senator from 1999 to 2007, before switching parties in 2007. He is the son of the late John Chafee, who served as a Republican Senator from Rhode Island from 1976 to 1999.

Chafee is focusing his campaign on issues of economic fairness and environmental protection. He is a vocal critic of the Romney administration's interventionist foreign policy, and has called for a more diplomatic approach to international relations. Chafee is also a proponent of criminal justice reform, and has called for an end to the war on drugs.


BREAKING: BIDEN RUNNING FOR POTUS

On April 25th, 2015, former Vice President Joe Biden announced his candidacy for President of the United States in 2016. In his launch speech, Biden declared, “I am running for President of the United States. And I believe that we can build on the progress we’ve made and continue to fight for new ideas and new leadership that will move us forward.”

Biden's announcement came after months of speculation and rumors about whether or not he would enter the race. His announcement was met with an enthusiastic response from both Democrats and Republicans alike, with many praising his experience and knowledge of foreign and domestic policy.

In his announcement speech, Biden stressed his commitment to tackling the issues that currently face the country, such as income inequality, climate change and foreign policy. He also emphasized his commitment to restoring trust in government, saying, “I believe that government can be a force for good in people’s lives. We must restore the trust and faith that people have lost in our government and in our leaders.”

BREAKING: WARREN MAKES BID FOR PRESIDENCY

On May 13th, 2015, Senator Elizabeth Warren announced her candidacy for President of the United States in the 2016 election. In her launch speech, Warren discussed the need for a leader who will fight for the middle class and focus on making the economy work for everyone.

"America’s middle class is under attack," Warren said. "It has been battered by an economy that works for those at the top, while squeezing everyone else. I want to build an America that works for all of us. That’s why I’m running for President of the United States."

The Massachusetts Senator, who is popular among progressive Democrats, has been a strong critic of Wall Street and corporate America. She has pushed for greater regulation of the financial industry and has championed consumer protections.

Warren also called for a focus on tackling income inequality, citing its negative effects on the economy. "For far too long, government has worked for those at the top and not for America’s families," she said.

Warren's decision to run for President is likely to have a major impact on the 2016 Democratic primary. Her progressive policies have already inspired a large base of supporters and she is considered a leading contender for the nomination.


BREAKING: WEBB ENTERS DEM RACE

On May 22nd, 2015, former Democratic Senator Jim Webb made a long-awaited announcement that he was throwing his hat in the ring for the 2016 presidential election. In his launch speech to a packed crowd at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, he said, “I’m running for president because it’s time for a New Leadership to bring real change to Washington.”

The announcement marks a new chapter for Webb, who served in the US Senate from 2007 to 2013 and is a decorated Vietnam veteran. He is the seventh Democrat to enter the presidential race, joining Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Martin O’Malley, Lincoln Chafee, Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren.

Webb has made it clear that he intends to run on a platform of change, both in terms of policy and the way the government is run. He has said that he wants to focus on the issues that he believes have been neglected by Washington, like the need to restore a sense of fairness to the American economy and to strengthen the middle class. He has also called for a more judicious foreign policy, with a focus on diplomatic solutions rather than military intervention.

BREAKING: SCHWEITZER LAUNCHES POTUS RUN

On June 2nd, 2015, former Governor of Montana Brian Schweitzer announced his bid for President of the United States in 2016. Speaking to a crowd of supporters in Great Falls, Schweitzer opened his announcement with a passionate speech.

“A bright future awaits us, and I am here today to pledge my commitment to help lead us there. I am ready to take on the challenge of building a better nation and restoring the American dream for all. I am running for President of the United States of America.”

Schweitzer has a long history in politics, having served as Montana’s 23rd governor from 2005 to 2013. During his time as governor, he focused on fiscal responsibility and increased public education funding. He also attempted to diversify Montana’s economy by pushing for more renewable energy sources and job creation.

Schweitzer is also a strong advocate for environmental protection and public lands. He fought against the Keystone XL Pipeline and has proposed a plan to move away from fossil fuels and towards a renewable energy future. In addition, he is a vocal proponent of equal rights, supporting same-sex marriage and women’s reproductive rights.


BREAKING: WARNER RUNNING IN 2016

On June 7th, 2015, Senator Mark Warner of Virginia announced his candidacy for the 2016 Presidential Election. In an official launch speech at George Mason University, he said, "I'm running because I believe we can build a stronger and fairer economy that works for all Americans, not just those at the top. We can make sure our kids get the world-class education they deserve and have the security they need in an ever-changing world."

The announcement of Senator Warner's candidacy marks the beginning of a long road towards the White House. As an experienced politician, Senator Warner has served as Governor of Virginia from 2002 to 2006 and since 2008, he has served in the US Senate for Virginia. He has built a reputation of bipartisanship and compromise, something he hopes will be an asset in his presidential bid.

The announcement was met with enthusiasm from both Democrats and Republicans. His supporters applaud his call for a stronger and fairer economy, as well as his commitment to education and security. His opponents, however, cite his lack of foreign policy experience as a major concern. Senator Warner has positioned himself as a moderate in the crowded field of presidential hopefuls.


BREAKING: BOOKER ANNOUNCES RUN

On June 11th, 2015, Senator Cory Booker announced that he is running for President of the United States in 2016. His announcement came at an event in Newark, New Jersey, his hometown and the city he served as Mayor.

In his launch speech, Booker said, “I believe that we can build a country where no one is forgotten, no one is left behind; where parents can put food on the table; where there are good paying jobs with good benefits in every neighborhood; where our criminal justice system keeps us safe, instead of shuffling more children into cages and coffins; where we see the faces of our leaders on television and feel pride, not shame.”

The announcement of Booker's candidacy marks a historic moment for the Democratic Party and for the nation as a whole. Booker has long been a champion of progressive values, and his candidacy is likely to energize the Democratic base. His success in local government and his record of accomplishments in the Senate have demonstrated his ability to tackle tough issues and get things done.

2016 clown car, Democratic edition? However, I guess Mittens would have been reelected unless the economy crashes or he's tainted by a major scandal.

BREAKING: CLINTON WINS NH PRIMARY

Hillary Clinton won the New Hampshire primary following an impressive showing in the primary. Clinton’s win in New Hampshire was a major milestone in her campaign and a sign that she is a serious contender for the Democratic nomination. However, her journey to the White House is far from over and she still has many more primaries and caucuses to win.

In her victory speech, Clinton thanked the people of New Hampshire for their support and for giving her a “great start” in the race for the White House. She also thanked her supporters for their tireless efforts in helping her to win. “Tonight we made history. And, tomorrow, let’s make some more,” Clinton said. She emphasized the importance of defeating President Romney and said that if elected, she would fight for issues such as equal pay, affordable healthcare, and criminal justice reform.

2016 New Hampshire Primary (32)
Hillary Clinton: 25.3% (9 delegates)
Brian Schweitzer: 24.8% (9 delegates)
Martin O'Malley: 21.0% (8 delegates)
Joe Biden: 15.3% (6 delegates)
Bernie Sanders: 13.5%


BREAKING: WARREN DROPS OUT
Senator Elizabeth Warren announced her withdrawal from the Democratic presidential primary after the New Hampshire primary. Warren, who had been widely considered a top-tier candidate for the Democratic nomination, cited a lack of support in the polls as the reason for her withdrawal.

Warren began her campaign with a large amount of enthusiasm, particularly among progressives. She positioned herself as a champion of progressive causes and unveiled an ambitious policy platform that included proposals to reform the financial sector, tackle income inequality, and address climate change. As the campaign progressed, however, Warren struggled to gain traction in the polls.

Despite her impressive fundraising totals, Warren’s support remained static throughout most of the primary season. In the weeks leading up to the New Hampshire primary, Warren’s poll numbers had begun to dwindle.

In light of these developments, Warren announced her withdrawal from the presidential race. In her announcement, she thanked her supporters and emphasized the need for Democrats to come together and beat Mitt Romney in November. She also noted that her policy platform was still relevant, and that she would continue to fight for progressive causes in the Senate. Warren endorsed Secretary Clinton.

BREAKING: SCHWEITZER WINS NV CAUCUS

On February 20th, 2016, Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer won the Nevada caucus. Schweitzer’s win, which was largely unexpected, received a standing ovation from the crowd at the caucus site in Las Vegas.

Schweitzer’s victory speech was full of thanks and gratitude, emphasizing his appreciation of the people of Nevada. He thanked Nevada for their trust and support in his campaign, calling them “the real heroes” of his success. He also thanked his campaign team and volunteers, saying that together they had achieved “something truly remarkable.”

Schweitzer went on to express his admiration for the diversity of Nevada’s people, and for the state’s strong commitment to the Democratic party. He praised the state’s commitment to progressive ideals and its progressive leadership. Schweitzer also highlighted the importance of Nevada’s support for his campaign, noting that it was a crucial step toward achieving the Democratic nomination in 2016.

Schweitzer’s win in the Nevada caucus was a remarkable accomplishment, and his victory speech was a testament to the power of the people of Nevada.

2016 Nevada Caucus (43)

BREAKING: O'MALLEY DROPS OUT
Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley announced he is suspending his campaign for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States. O’Malley had lagged far behind front-runners Hillary Clinton and Brian Schweitzer in the polls, but he had held out hope until he placed second in the Nevada caucus.

The decision to suspend his campaign came as a surprise to many political observers, as O’Malley had been a long-time favorite of the Democratic establishment. He had served as mayor of Baltimore and two-term governor of Maryland, and had positioned himself as a progressive leader who could bridge the divide between the establishment and the progressive wings of the party.

In announcing his decision to suspend his campaign, O’Malley praised his supporters and said he was proud of the campaign they had run. He also affirmed his continued commitment to the Democratic Party and pledged to support Secretary Hillary Clinton.

BREAKING: SANDERS DROPS OUT, ENDORSES CLINTON

Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont announced his decision to drop out of the 2016 Democratic primary and endorse Secretary Hillary Clinton for president. Sanders' decision marked the end of a long and hard-fought campaign, one that sought to bring progressive values to the forefront of American politics.

Sanders' campaign began with a bang in 2015, when he announced his intention to run for the Democratic nomination. His grassroots and populist message resonated with many voters, particularly young Americans. He campaigned on a platform of economic and social justice, advocating for a “political revolution” to combat the rising inequality and corruption in American politics.

In the face of the reality that his campaign was unable to catapult into victories, Sanders made the difficult decision to drop out of the race and endorse Clinton.
