Governor Rebecca Tarson became the first official candidate for the vice presidency today, declaring “it’s time to return to the years of Katniss Everdeen.”
Governor Tarson is currently the governor of District 12, the home district of both former President Katniss Everdeen and Senator Peeta Mellark, who is running for the presidency. Having served two terms, Tarson has been noted for her success and making District 12 a financial center for Panem.
Tarson will likely face a tough primary that includes much better-known candidates such as Senator Alexandra West among others. However, it wouldn’t be the first time that a candidate has broken through unexpectedly to win the nomination- see current VP Dale Wilson.
