CONVENTION WRAP-UP: Civic convention unifies, Conservatives rally, and Centre begins its landmark journey

Today we will be wrapping up coverage of the final three conventions due to their overlapping timelines.


CIVIC CONVENTION:

Senator Quentin Kennedy accepts the VP nomination of the Civic Party.

Civic Party leaders and delegates met in District 6 to designate Senators Patrick Newsom (D3) and Quentin Kennedy (D6) as their standard-bearers for the upcoming election.

The convention served as a source of party unity following what was a brutally-fought primary for the presidency. Samuel Trenton, the defeated rival of now-nominee Patrick Newsom, introduced the senator and called him “one of the greatest leaders in this country’s history.” Former President and previous party leader Cecelia Paylor lauded Newsom and Kennedy with praise, declaring them “just what the party and this country needs at this tumultuous time.” The speaker list is below.

Speakers (Night One): 

  • Fannie Bush, actress (D2)
  • Kyra Close, candidate for representative (D1)
  • Nic Martel, candidate for representative (D7)
  • Walter Rigby, candidate for governor (D11)
  • Sawyer Coburn, businessman and candidate for governor (D9)
  • Raylin Kramer, senator (D6)
  • Quentin Kennedy, senator and nominee for vice president (D6)

Speakers (Night Two): 

  • Amelia Vance, representative (D10)
  • Valerie Wilkins, representative (D6)
  • Tom Dawkins, representative (D3)
  • Sadie Myers, former senator (D3)
  • Ivy Spellings, First Lady of District 3 (D3)
  • Bertram Spellings, governor (D3)
  • Russell Paylor, former First Gentleman of Panem (D8)
  • Cecelia Paylor, national security advisor, former President, and party founder (D8)
  • Samuel Trenton, former Cabinet secretary, former Speaker, previous VP nominee, and candidate for president (Capitol)
  • Patrick Newsom, senator and nominee for president (D3)

CONSERVATIVE CONVENTION:

Marvel Wheeler, D4 district representative.

Meeting in District 4, the Conservative Party convened their third quadrennial party convention. This year, however, brought a convention with new party leaders and a brighter picture for the Conservatives in comparison to last convention, where Rick Canth and Jackson Canth were nominated amid major disapproval and mass walkouts that resulted in an independent ticket.

Conservatives rallied around former Gov. Kaitlyn Jones and her running mate, former Sec. Delia Sutherland, declaring them “the only sane choices in this insane political world.” Notable absences included the Canths, but for good reason: Jones and Sutherland categorically denied their endorsements and declared the pair to be “persona non grata” in Conservative circles for their illegal actions. The speaker list is below.

Speakers (Day One):

  • Annise Byrd, district representative and candidate for governor (D6)
  • Marvel Wheeler, district representative (D4)
  • Cooper McPharlin, activist and candidate for governor (D1)
  • Regina Durant, businesswoman and candidate for representative (D13)
  • Julian Gibson, district representative (D6)
  • Belinda Copley, representative and former LG (D6)
  • Lynn Germaine, former Secretary of Intelligence (D4)
  • Robert F. Maxwell, businessman (D4)
  • Delia Sutherland, former Secretary of the Interior and nominee for VP (D4)

Speakers (Day Two):

  • Cam Bullock, district senator and candidate for representative (D12)
  • Victoria Warren, district senator and candidate for representative (D14)
  • Deon Masterson, district representative and candidate for representative (D15)
  • Kurtis Pierce, former Secretary of the Treasury and candidate for president (D2)
  • Jack Oliver, former Secretary of Global Development and candidate for VP (D11)
  • Carl Parsons, representative and former LG (D11)
  • Andrew Jones, former First Gentleman of District 11 (D11)
  • Kaitlyn Jones, former governor and nominee for president (D11)

CENTRE CONVENTION:

Senator Julie Roydon accepts the Centre Party presidential nomination.

The convention circuit ended with the Centre Party’s inaugural convention in District 13. The convention was a landmark for the fledgling party, which is currently in its first presidential election cycle.

The convention’s main goal was to display a conclusive vision for the Centre ticket, as the main attack that the Roydon/Christian ticket receives is a lack of clear goals for the nation. Speakers hit on a conservative economic policy, a liberal domestic policy, and a pragmatic approach to foreign policy. A speaker list is below.

Speakers (Day One):

  • Donald Beck, representative and candidate for governor (D6)
  • Stephanie Peters, representative (D15)
  • Lorrie Trent, district senator and candidate for representative (D1)
  • Glenn Beckham, actor and candidate for governor (D7)
  • Rachel Cross, district representative and candidate for representative (D15)
  • Adrianne Horsfall, representative and candidate for governor (D1)
  • Dillan Christian, representative (D10)
  • Matthias Christian, representative and nominee for VP (D10)

Speakers (Day Two):

  • Isabel Calhoun, representative (D2)
  • Natalia MacGregor, district senator and candidate for representative (D4)
  • Rita McDaniel, representative (D11)
  • Tim Coombs, representative (D1)
  • Brady Hanley, representative (D14)
  • Sextimus Dalton, former VP candidate, former representative, and former lieutenant governor (D5)
  • Clarke Randall, senator and Centre Senate Leader (D9)
  • Joseph Garrett, senator (D15)
  • Michael Roydon, husband of presidential nominee Julie Roydon (Capitol)
  • Julie Roydon, senator and nominee for president (Capitol)
