BREAKING: Former Governor of District 8 Felicia Ren announced today that she is not running for president again under the Labor Party ticket.
Ren, the previous nominee of the Labor Party, has been undecided on what her next steps are politically after her landslide defeat in the last presidential election, which was the worst showing by the party in the terms of both the popular and electoral vote. However, following today’s announcement, it appears that she’s decided to take her career in another direction.
Further detrimental to a third Ren bid for president was her loss to new Liberty D8 Governor Layla Folsom. The loss was stunning as Liberty for the first time made major gains in the district.
It also made Ren into an ex-governor for the second time in her career, the first time of which was her loss to independent Elizabeth Steinbeck.
However, it should be noted that Felicia Ren also has sprung back before. Ren’s career was declared dead by pundits following her loss to Steinbeck, but her reemergence on the national stage as her party’s presidential nominee along with a terrible four-year Steinbeck term allowed Ren to be elected once more to her governorship.
“It’s time for a new generation of Laborites, ones with effective visions that can deliver true success to all people of Panem, from the richest to the poorest. And while it pains me to say it, I’m not going to be a candidate for president because I feel that I am holding up the future. I will be here every step of the way for this next generation of public servants, but as for the presidency, I’m not going to stand in their way of that.”
