2072

In 2069, President Maxwell nominates Sara Chama to the Supreme Court, following the retirement of one of the 8 Republican appointed justices.  With both parties fearing her presumed candidacy in 2072, she is quickly confirmed.  Conditions appear to stabilize in the Southwest under targeted infrastructure and aid programs, but population decline continues.  Chama dissents with Del Toro in a landmark 2070 case upholding a Louisiana public lands privatization law.  Their position is framed as a radical statement that individual land ownership is unconstitutional.  Republicans sweep to large congressional majorities in the midterm and redistricting results in over 240 congressional districts won by Jones/Schwab 2 years earlier.  Moderate Democrats panic and disavow Natural Law, splitting the left in a landslide that will shut Democrats out of the White House for another generation:



Fred Bartlett (PA-GOV)/Christopher Marcus (SC-SEN) 472 EV 53.5%
Travis Walsh (FL-SEN)/Annie Townsend (MD-GOV) 31 EV 34.7%
Carlos Del Rey (AZ-SEN)/Martin Rousseau (MT-GOV) 35 EV 11.2%

2076

Amid the furor over D'Entremont v. Louisiana, the Republican-controlled congress considers impeachment of Justices Chama and Del Toro but ultimately decides instead to gradually expand the size of the Court to dilute their influence.  The 6 additional seats will be filled one at a time in each odd-numbered year, beginning in 2077 for reasons of propriety.  Congress also abruptly cuts aid and investment in the West back to below 2064 levels.  The resulting budget surplus makes President Bartlett very popular in the rest of the country, enabling his landslide reelection:



President Fred Bartlett/Vice President Christopher Marcus 447 EV 54.7%

Jason Matheson (UT-GOV)/Ana Puentes (KS-01) 54 EV 23.9%
Clarence Goodman (GA-SEN)/Rachel O'Donnell (MA-GOV) 37 EV 21.5%

The Republican Supreme Court plan backfires when Democrats, in coalition with Natural Law, retake the Senate in 2078, control which the left will hold continuously until 2106 due to its new-found domination of the smallest states.  Democrats and Natural Law meet and formally merge their presidential tickets from 2080 forward.  Statewide Natural Law officeholders slowly become or are replaced by Democrats over the next 12 years.

2080

VP Marcus announces a run for the open seat as expected.  Republicans are nervous about facing a united left, but as the first black Republican nominee, Marcus is able to rally support in historically unusual places for a moderate popular vote win in a strong economy.  The race is unnervingly close in the electoral college because the 2070 appointment obscures unprecedented mass migration out of the Southwest and Gulf states.  After this election, Democratic political infrastructure in the urban North, which was deeply uncomfortable with the merge with Natural Law, falls into terminal collapse outside of Chicago and Boston.



Vice President Christopher Marcus/Suzanne LoBiondo (NJ-SEN) 51.5% 282 EV
Ana Puentes (KS-GOV)/Andrew Landry (LA-GOV) 47.3% 256 EV

2084

Succumbing to antiviral-resistant pneumonia in February of 2084 at the age of only 56, Charles Marcus becomes the first president since Franklin Roosevelt to die in office of natural causes.  President LoBiondo serves out his term and cruises to election in her own right 9 months later.  Reapportionment appears to crush Democratic House and Presidential hopes for another decade, but they retain the Senate 51/49, running just far enough ahead of their presidential ticket in the Plains:



President Suzanne LoBiondo/Vice President Mark Anderson (Formerly Speaker of the House, MO-02) 417 EV 58.2%
Everett Tell (TX-SEN)/Molly Madigan (IL-SEN) 141 EV 40.1%

2088

Having served less than 2 years prior to her first election, President LoBiondo seeks a full second term, which she wins easily.  But this was a decision she would later regret during the economic collapse of July, 2089.  Conditions deteriorate further in the Southwest and Florida.  The situation is largely ignored save for modest relief funding negotiated in the Senate during budget deals:



President Suzanne LoBiondo/Vice President Mark Anderson 350 EV 54.9%
Ellie Smith (VA-SEN)/Nick Sanchez (NE-SEN) 188 EV 44.1%

Try to guess the significance of this map... note the differing percentages.

The largest states by area are the most Republican, and the smallest are the most Democratic.

2092

Only 6 weeks after a stock market crash ushers in the worst recession in 80 years, a category 5 hurricane strikes Jacksonville on Labor Day, 2089.  By late September, hospitals in North Florida and South Georgia report several hundred cases of antiviral-resistant pneumonia.  Called the Suwannee Virus, the disease soon spreads throughout the Southeast, reaching even the southern districts of Virginia during the mild winter and claiming over 5 million lives.  A scandal engulfs the NIH when documents show that incompetent management stalled promising research on antiviral-resistant pneumonia.  President LoBiondo falls to 18% approval.  In 2090, Democrats retake the House for the first time since 2070.   

Isabel Martinez, the 2nd term governor of Texas narrowly clinches the Democratic nomination.  An energetic 47 year old rancher and mother of four from Lubbock, her political career began a decade earlier in 2082, when she was the first Democrat in over a century to capture TX-19.   A Vice President Anderson retires from politics and Republican Jing-an "Jeff" Kearney of Michigan runs in his place, seeking to become the first Chinese-American president.  Known in the press as "Detroit's Tiger Dad" during his time as mayor, he had turned Detroit into a vibrant economic center with the lowest crime rate in the country for a city its size.  He was perhaps the strongest possible Republican candidate, but even he cannot escape the national wave.



Isabel Martinez (TX-GOV)/Calvin Brown (IL-SEN)  56.7% 390 EV
J. A. "Jeff" Kearney (MI-GOV)/Sarah Fitzpatrick (CT-GOV)  42.5% 148 EV

2096

The Supreme Court upholds the D.E.S.E.R.T. Act, the Flood Relief Act of 2093 and the re-established Civilian Conservation Corps in successive 8 to 7 votes during the spring of 2095, with the additional justices confirmed by the Democratic senate during the court expansion ironically holding the balance of power.  Shortly thereafter, the oldest two conservatives retire from the court, leaving little doubt that other American future programs will also be upheld.  Relief funds and public works projects flow to the Southwestern and Gulf Coast states.  Chicago and Boston become centers for AI innovation and the economy briskly recovers from the late 2080's depression and agricultural crisis, which powers Martinez to the largest popular vote win in US history:
 


President Isabel Martinez/Vice President Calvin Jackson 62.7%  529 EV
Sarah Fitzpatrick (CT-GOV)/Matthew X. Chen (WA-SEN) 35.4%  9 EV

2100

In late 2062, seven-year-old Alissa Cruz, the great-granddaughter of the early 21st century Texas senator, moves with her parents from Houston to Boston.  In an improbable turn of events, she falls in love with and marries the great-grandson of Senator Elizabeth Warren while working as a political activist for the Natural Law movement.  An aggressive advocate of conservationist policy in a now closely divided state, she becomes an early frontrunner to succeed President Martinez when Vice President Jackson decides to retire:



Alissa Cruz-Warren (MA-GOV)/Nathaniel Morrison (Sec. of the Interior*)  55.3% 334 EV 
Sean G. Feltenheimer (WI-GOV)/Kwame Wood (House Minority Leader**)  45.3% 204 EV
 
*formerly ID-SEN
**Representing PA-02 (downtown Philadelphia)

2104

The story of the 2100 census was the aggressive growth of the Anchorage metro area.  Alaska was now home to more than 8 million people.  Republicans decided early on that their best opportunity to break their 12 year losing streak was to target the South Atlantic states, where locals were growing less enamored with President Martinez's American Future programs 12 years in.  Ultimately, they came up just short: 



President Alissa Cruz-Warren/Vice President Nathaniel Morrison 50.3%  298 EV
Marianne Williamson (TN-SEN)/Arthur J. Cohen (NY-SEN)  48.0%  240 EV

2108

"And I would like to remind my colleagues Sens. Martin and Velazquez (D-AZ) that I represent more people than they do!"  When Kwame Wood was sworn in as Speaker of the House in January of 2107, he made good on his promise to investigate fraud and corruption in the distribution of American Future funds in the Southwest.  Known as the reformer who broke the back of the Philadelphia machine, he would bring down Sen. Martin, along with the governor of Arizona and Nevada's attorney general as growing corruption scandals under one-party government in the desert Southwest states finally soured swing voters on the Democrats:



Kwame Wood (Speaker of the House [PA-02])/Ken Smith (AK-SEN)  56.1% 402 EV
Vice President Nathaniel Morrison/Erin O'Leary (IL-GOV)  43.2%  138 EV 

2112

Reapportionment is the least eventful in decades.  After 50 years of collapse, population finally stabilizes and even begins recovering in parts of the Southwest.  President Wood is very strong during his first two years, passing several anticorruption measures and a balanced budget.  But his administration is caught flat-footed when antiviral-resistant pneumonia resurfaces in the Southeast during late 2111.  His approval ratings sag with the poor disaster response and an increasingly precarious economy.  Morrison decides he wants a rematch, which he easily wins, becoming the first male Democratic president since Patrick Murphy was elected in 2044:
 


Former Vice President Nathaniel Morrison/Alana Landry (MN-GOV) 55.2% 353 EV
President Kwame Wood/Vice President Ken Smith 44.1% 185 EV

2116

The Martinez Coalition lives on as President Morrison is reelected in a landslide during the economic recovery against a Republican challenger who pledged full repeal of the American Future:



President Nathaniel Morrison/Vice President Alana Landry 60.2%  522 EV
Louisa Delgaudio (NJ-SEN)/Robert Dennison (OR-GOV) 38.3% 16 EV
