Dylan James Price
The 2032 United States Presidential Election was the 62nd quadrennial presidential election, held on Tuesday, November 8, 2032. The election took place among the backdrop of the Labor Crisis that had ruined the promises of incumbent President and Republican candidate Maya Garcia to bring about a new era of prosperity. The Progressive nomination went to the well-known governor of the most populous state, California's Dylan J. Price, who had been reelected governor in a landslide in 2030. Price marshaled his party and brought in a leading Rust Belt liberal as his running mate, Senator Sam Allan of Michigan.
Price repeatedly blamed Garcia for the Depression and worsening economy. With employment above 120% in 2032 alone, Garcia was remiss to defend her record, and Price promised recovery with a series of radical immigration reforms and new social services to ease the burden of elderly care in the country. Price won by 36% of voter's first choices, and well over 66% of voter's second choices, receiving the highest percentage of the popular vote for a Progressive nominee. On election night, upon hearing of their victory, the 81 year old Sam Alan suffered a massive stroke and died just as he and Price had won. To ease national tensions and seal his coalition, Price nominated Labor Party rival Ivory Toldson to replace Alan as VP. The election marked the effective end of the Sixth Party System, dominated by Republicans. Subsequent landslides in the 2034 mid-term elections and following presidential election two and four years later respectively, signified the commencement of the Seventh Party System, dominated by Price's Progressive Coalition.
Republican party nomination
- Maya Garcia, President of the United States from Texas
- Tim Pawlenty, former Governor of Minnesota
As the year 2032 began, the Republican Party believed Garcia's protectionism and aggressive fiscal policies would solve the recession. Whether they were successful or not, President Maya Garcia controlled the party and had little trouble securing a re-nomination. Former governor Tim Pawlenty attempted to challenge Garcia's nomination, but was largely ignored.
Progress party nomination
- Dylan James Price, Governor of California
- Sam Alan, Speaker of the House from Indiana
- Ira Blum, former Governor of Arizona
The leading candidate for the Progressive presidential nomination in 2032 was California Governor Dylan J. Price. Speaker of the House Sam Alan and former Governor of Arizona Ira Blum were trailing him. Before the 2032 Progressive National Convention met in Denver between August 27 and September 2, Price had more votes than all of his opponents combined. The convention quickly became a fight for the Vice Presidency between Alan and Blum, both much older men who had swept the votes of retirees. Alan was the clear winner for second place, with support from rank-and-file Progressives in the House.
Labor party nomination
- Ivory Toldson, Congressman from Virginia
- Carry Anderson, Governor of Iowa
When the primaries began, Toldson was little-known at the national level, and most pundits had rallied behind popular Iowa Governor Carry Anderson. However, as the Price campaign began to gain national attention, moderate members of the Labor party began to throw their support for Toldson, who was generally seen as more moderate than Anderson and could appeal to a broader voting bloc.
Libertarian party nomination
- Eric Haden, Senator from North Carolina
- Paul Ryan, Senator from Indiana
