Your task...run a campaign, convince the media to endorse your candidate, and win the election.
The year is 2016. Barack Obama dropped out of the 2012 race when it became clear that he was, in fact, NOT born an American citizen. In 2012, a dark horse (and former cabinet member in the Obama Administration) declared himself an independent and won the presidency by 2 electoral votes. Now, 5 Candidates are vying for the most powerful position in the world... and for the first time, neither of the major parties are in the lead and neither hold the incumbency. The candidates whose campaigns you will run represent the Green Party, the Libertarian Party, and the incumbent, President Ken Salazar, is registered "Independent." Two of the groups will create their candidates (name, biography, etc), but the candidates' positions must be consistent with their party's positions. Salazar's campaign, in contrast, must base its materials on the REAL Ken Salazar (or as much information as you can find about him). Go to Upcoming Deadlines to learn more about the products you must produce during the campaign.
