Vice Presidential Election

Though considered a down-ballot election, the Vice Presidential election can influence an administration as much as a presidential election. The first Vice President, Plutarch Heavensbee, is a Liberty Party member from the Capitol and decided to forgo a reelection campaign. However, he has resigned after a prostitution scandal, and independent Tyler Thompson, previously Governor of District 5, has been appointed to the rest of Heavensbee’s term. Vice President Thompson has indicated that he will not run for reelection. A primary battle has erupted for the Liberty Party’s VP nomination, and only three remain: Secretary of State Celine Oswald, Governor Gale Hawthorne of District 2, and Secretary of Defense Jonathan Madison. The results are so close that it may be possible that there isn’t a presumptive nominee before the convention and that a consensus candidate, who may have run or have turned down the opportunity to run, may be selected over the three.
