2032 US Presidential election
The Kamala Harris' defeat in the 2028 presidential election has whetted appetites within the Democratic Party. Joseph Patrick Kennedy, Senator of Massachusetts, enters to the race. Michelle Obama, former First Lady and Senator of Illinois, does the same. The other candidates are Chelsea Clinton, Representative from Arkansas and daughter of former President Bill Clinton and the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, and Julian Castro, Mayor of San Antonio. It is a very tough race. Kennedy runs on the John F. Kennedy's presidential record and represents his granduncle's legacy. Michelle Obama does the same for her husband, former President Barack Obama. Chelsea Clinton does the same for his father. Julian Castro, a Hispanic politician from Texas, also represents a hope for the Democratic Party. With the John F. Kennedy's fight against racism many years ago and the fact that Michelle Obama is black and she's the wife of a former President divides the African-American vote between Kennedy and Obama. Polls are pretty tied between the two candidates. As usual, the first three states to hold a primary are Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. Kennedy wins Iowa and New Hampshire but loses South Carolina to Michelle Obama. There is 4292 delegates to be selected. To win the Democratic nomination, a candidate must win 2147 delegates. None of the four Democratic hopefuls gets through the magical number of delegates to win the nomination, but the results are closed between Kennedy (1814 delegates, 21 states and 43 % of the popular vote) and Obama (1757 delegates, 21 states and 41 % of the popular vote). Julian Castro, who dropped out of the race in February endorses Kennedy and donnate him all of his 151 delegates. Chelsea Clinton, who dropped out in late-March, emdorses Kennedy and Michelle Obama and donnate each of them the half of her delegates. So Kennedy finally wins the Democratic Presidential nomination in mid-June with 2250 delegates against 2042 for Obama. He selects Julian Castro as his running mate. The Democratic National Convention is located in San Diego, California.
His Republican opponent is Paul Ryan, Representative from Wisconsin and 2012 Vice-Presidential nominee. The polls gave advantage to Kennedy between June and August. By August, the polls are more tied between Kennedy and Ryan. As he did during the primaries, Kennedy runs on the John F. Kennedy's presidential record and promises to use the same policies as his granduncle. Paul Ryan runs on his experience in economy and in budget and on his past as Vice-Presidential nominee twenty years ago. Kennedy promises to create closer ties between the USA and Vietnam. The fact that the two candidates are Catholics divided the Catholic vote. The fact that both Suzana Martinez and Julian Castro are Hispanics divided the Hispanic vote. The election is scheduled on November 7th 2032. Joseph P. Kennedy III is elected President of the United States, defeating Paul Ryan, by winning 279 great electors, 21 states and 50 % of the popular vote against 259 great electors, 30 states and 48 % of the popular vote for Ryan. He's inaugurated as the 47th President of the United States on January 20th 2033. Julian Castro becomes his Vice-President.
