Incoming Freshmen:
Kirsten Sinema (D-AZ)
Jacky Rosen (D-NV)

Mitt Romney (R-UT)


This is the start of a mini-timeline I have planned. I am not abandoning my other timeline, I just have a bit of writers block with it, and I am hoping this will help that somewhat.

Img
Despite murmurs otherwise, Nancy Pelosi has taken office as the New Speaker of the House, and Chuck Schumer has become the Senate Majority Leader, with Democrats now holding both chambers in the first time since 2010.

January 19th, 2019
Joe Biden will run for President

Img
In an early and massive shake up, the former Vice President has declared his intention to seek the Democratic nomination for the third time in his life. Obama’s number 2, Biden is both well known and well liked among most Democrats. Biden is currently the weak front runner, polling anywhere between 20% and 40%.

January 20th, 2019
Trump: “Biden is a creep”

Img
In one of his usual twitter tirades, President Trump unloaded at Joe Biden, calling him a creep and a weakling. The Trump White House officially released a statement, expressing confidence that Trump would defeat any democrat nominated in 2020.

February 11th, 2019
Julian Castro declares bid for President, becoming third “Obama Democrat” to enter the race.

Img

The former HUD secretary became the 7th major Democrat to enter the race for president in 2020. The fmr. Mayor of San Antonio and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development has the markings a strong candidate. Ties to the Obama administration, and a young, charismatic hispanic, Castro’s main weakness is a lack of name recognition.

February 20th, 2019
Marco Rubio won’t challenge Trump, leaves door open to endorsing challenger.

Img
The sometimes ally, sometimes critic of the President, Florida Senator Marco has ruled out challenging Trump in the Republican primaries. In a blow to the sitting president, Rubio has left the door open to endorsing a primary challenger to Trump.

February 22nd, 2019
Martin O’Malley to run for President Again.

Img
Claiming to have learned from his prior mistakes, Martin O’Malley has declared that he will run for President in 2020. O’Malley’s 2016 campaign was drowned out by the much more imposing candidacies of Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. However, O’Malley has spent much of the past 2 years building up his national profile in preparation for this second run for president.

March 1st, 2019
Eric Garcetti announces run for President.

Img
The Mayor of Los Angeles has declared that he will run for president in the upcoming election, confirming the rumors after over a year of speculation. Garcetti claims that he will bring “big city ideas” to the White House, and states that the Mayoralty is where all the real governing happens.

Gubernatorial Map.

Nevada and Rhode Island are considered upset victories for the Republicans, while Democrats generally won in every battleground state except those two and Alaska.  As for the State Houses, Democrats gain an outright majority in AK's House, AZ's senate, CO's Senate, CT's Senate, both houses of the ME legislature, the MN Senate, the PA House, and the FL House by varying margins. Democrats generally gained seats in every legislative chamber.

We took the FL House?! That's really impressive! I'd've thought the Senate would flip first.

Also, this TL is great. Who's the governor of Florida?

It was supposed to be the FL Senate, not the FL House. That was my mistake.

Anyway, to your second question.
