Thanks for the comments. Getting back from a vacation in the woods so will work in getting this back up and running.
I have an outline to 2016 election and that supposed administration, not all firm. I started musing on this over a year ago so didn’t want to get ahead of real life, but now the 2020 election is upon us.How long will TTL go to? 2020?
Thank you!Keep up the great work, I love TLs like this that focus on figures of less prominence IOTL
Yeah that looks right. Thanks for putting it together!
Awesome good to hear!I have an outline to 2016 election and that supposed administration, not all firm. I started musing on this over a year ago so didn’t want to get ahead of real life, but now the 2020 election is upon us.
Given the recent clarification on “current politics,” I am somewhat hesitant to try and do an alt 2020 during the election. But none of the party candidates are the same.
It seems that ITTL, Ohio and Missouri would cease to be considered as bellwether states much earlier than IOTL.
Yes, and he won the 2006 reelection against Darrel Issa (Arnold Schwarzenegger didn't run because his personal indiscretions came out earlier). Antonio Villaraigosa won the special election to replace Dianne Feinstein in 2002, but loss in 2006 to Condelezza Rice, mostly due to his personal indiscretions.Who replaced Davis in Sacramento in 2004? Bustamante?
2000 Missouri was the closest to margin Republican victory. Bush IOTL won Missouri by 7 points in 2004, so it was certainly less of a bellweather over time. The presidential margin was closer in 2004, so Claire McCaskill won her gubernatorial race. Mel Carnahan lives ITTL, but lost to Sarah Steelman in 2006.It seems that ITTL, Ohio and Missouri would cease to be considered as bellwether states much earlier than IOTL.
Maybe slightly in 2000, certainly in 2004. The veep impact on home states, especially if they had not ran statewide previously, is suspect. In Ohio, Democrats won the gubernatorial race and lost the Senate race in 2006.To be fair, Kasich probably helped the Republican ticket in Ohio in both 00 and 04.
Yes, so far I’m trying to keep it the same to help myself narratively. Obviously the candidates in the arena makes a difference - no Giuliani to bomb out, for example.I see what you did there!
Allen vs Jeb vs Huckabee is shaping up to be a fun contest. Give or take is the 2008 primary calendar the same ITTL as it was OTL?
Thanks fixed. It is such a weird name.Very good update--nice to see competition. Although 'Davis Grey' still is inferior compared to 'Drey Gavis', which was my ORIGINAL typo.
