Governor Felicia Ren (Labor-D8) announced her second presidential run today at a factory in her home district of 8, stating “it’s time for the parties of the right-wing to give control to someone else. These Liberty and Conservative Party policies lead us to wars, recessions, and overall disaster.”
Governor Ren is the current governor of District 8, a Labor stronghold that also is the home district of former President Cecelia Paylor. She was recently sworn in to a second nonconsecutive term as governor, defeating Elizabeth Steinbeck (Independent-D8) in a landslide election. Governor Steinbeck had previously unseated Governor Ren in the election before last, where the results were hotly contested before Steinbeck was declared the winner.
The two rivals later on faced off on the national stage together, where Governor Ren was the Labor nominee for president while Governor Steinbeck ran as an independent. Neither won the election, though Ren is noted for running a better and more graceful campaign as she opted not to contest the House election while Governor Steinbeck continued on, swearing that she could win the presidency regardless of not winning a single district.
Governor Ren is the indisputable front-runner for the nomination of the Labor Party, leading by double digit margins in recent polls. Her competitors, if any, range from Secretary and former VP nominee Walter Delta to Secretary and former presidential contender Joan Kindred.
