Electoral History Edit
2004 & 2008 presidential election Edit
The Republicans won successfully in 2004 election, and won 49 states against unpopular candidate Blake Stewart. This candidate won a second term in 2008, and it is likely as Stuart Hughes was the Democratic Party nominee in 2012, so if the Democrats had won in 2008, Hughes would be running for his second term, not first.
2012 election & 2014 midterms Edit
2016 election Edit
In the 2016 election, the Republicans nominated Arizona Senator Bill O'Brien and New Mexico Senator Laura Montez to run against sitting President Selina Meyer and her running mate Maine Senator Tom James. The election ended in an historic tie, which led to a vote in the House and Senate, both of which could not produce a viable winner, until sitting Vice President Andrew Doyle, broke the tie, awarding the Presidency to Montez. Montez was sworn in as President on January 20, 2017. Because Jim Marwood continued to serve as House Speaker, it implies that the Republican Party currently holds a majority in the House in the 115th United States Congress.
