BREAKING: Senator Patrick Newsom (Civic-D3) will run for president, according to sources from within the senator’s office.
Newsom, the senior senator from District 3, is set to make his campaign for president official at a rally in front of his former high school. Sources say that his campaign will focus highly on immigration and education.
Newsom is likely to face at least one opponent in the Civic Party primary for president, the first of its kind in party history. Samuel Trenton, a former cabinet secretary for the Everdeen and Canth administrations and the previous Civic vice presidential nominee, is considered likely to run. If so, the race will be tight between Newsom and Trenton due to the former’s firepower and the latter’s name recognition and experience. Further complicating the race would be the entry of additional candidates such as Governor Bertram Spellings and former Senator Sadie Myers.
