“Ladies and Gentlemen. As a nation, we cannot be divided. It seems that everyone drones on about Gothic not being part of the union but nobody seems to do much. Some time ago, when Jean and I were running against each other I took the first step to establish an alliance with the Gothic Mayor, we spent an entire afternoon brainstorming ways that the city could become part of the United States of America again and ways that it could be reconstructed.”
“We stayed in contact and became good friends. We share similar views on social and fiscal policies and despite the fact that we had to run against each other in this election. We made it a point not to attack each other, because we valued our friendship, and we believe that if either one would have won then the other would have made the country a better place. Which is at the end of the day, our main priority.”
“But then, we saw that we could do more if we stood together again. Which is why I am happy to announce that Alexander Rook will be my running mate in the upcoming election.”
“But enough from me. Let’s hear it for the man of the hour!” Alexander clapped his hands as he sat down.
‘Look at that smile and tell me you don’t want to believe in him. He’s young and charming and he appeals to women and the youth. He comes from a rough upbringing, which makes him relatable to minorities and the working class. He also has a kid on the way too, from a Hawk Lord at that. If I had fabricated him, I couldn’t have picked a better running mate. The Liberal vote is practically mine right now.’
‘When I told him at the beginning of the race that I planned to run again and that I wanted his support he told me that it was his intentions to run too. I could have threatened him, but I saw an opportunity. I told him to run against me and to get as many votes in as he could. By the time the primaries came, I would announce him as my running mate.’
‘And now, here we are. The country is my oyster.’
