Louisianne: On The Campaign Trail in St. Louis


2 Pluviôse, CCXII

After Monday’s Caucus in Le Caillou, President Guillame Henri Claintaun has thrown in his hat. After a poor showing and public backlash for his desires to run for re-election, President Claintaun has announced his support for his wife, and his retirement for public life following his term of office.

The race is now beginning to look tight, as Hilary Rodham Claintaun and Richard Alouicious Gépard vie for their the party nomination against Populist Party’s Michel Huckabée. Polls show Mme. Claintaun leading Gépard 2 to 1 and it is suspected that if the poor showing for M. Gépard continues, he’ll bow out of the race.

The Louisiannan Campaign Trail


IBAP, Le Caillou, St. Louis, Louisianne

President Guillaume Henri Claintaun hit the campaign trail today, kissing babies, giving speeches and hitting every whistle stop on the train lines of the department. While this seems the standard picture of a campaign, it’s far from the truth.

President Guillame Henri Claintaun is not competing against an average opponent, and he doesn’t have a supportive wife at home…because she’s on the campaign trail as well.

Today, Madame Hilary Rodham Claintaun announced that she would represent the centre-right Peuples Pour un Meilleur Louisianne, or PPML, to compete against her husband. In the opinion polls President Claintaun is lagging, dropping to 50% from his 64% at the new year (late September).

All other candidates don’t have the voter support, so this will degenerate, most likely, to a battle of the sexes…so may the best man…or woman win!
