You may hold campaign events to influence House, Senate, or Governorship races in your home state by posting here. You may not do events outside of your home state. These events are very simplistic, often involving your character standing in a public square giving a speech. To allow for maximum roleplay, there is no limit to these events, but I am NOT looking for a spam war. Each event needs to be unique, of good quality, and serve a purpose. Remember that your character should never campaign for himself -- that's what your multis are for!

The next two years will be important for charting the course of our great nation, and the people of Maryland have a choice we can make. We can choose to elect a man of honor and principle like William Vans Murray, a strong Federalist who will support the policies of the great General and our Commander-in-Chief, or we may make the decision to elect a man dedicated to tearing down the very fabric of this great nation in the name of the mob, a man like William Pinkney. Where the Federalist vision of our Constitutional Union sees the states and the people as partners, the Republican vision espoused by men like Pinkney is one where the mob is granted extraordinary power. Pinkney remained silent while his Republican colleague introduced a proposal to require every American to cast a vote on important legislation. Every single person in this nation: that means allowing debtors, women, those who do not profess a belief in the Saviour, perhaps even blacks and those of illegitimate parentage the right to exercise their will over our laws.
To support this, these Republicans and their New Democrats wolves-in-sheep's-clothing allies point to the demos of ancient Athens. They point to the success of that city-state. What they fail to mention is the fast fate of Athens: crushed under the boot of foreign invaders who took advantage of their slow government, their divided nature, and their inability to reach consensus. That is the vision men like William Pinkney would like to see take hold in America, and it is up to us to stop them. Let us unite to support a man like William Vans Murray, a man who rejects the notion that our country is better served by the empowerment of the baying mob.

Campaign Soapbox Speech for William Vans Murray (F-Maryland)
"We need a sound man like William Vans Murray as a Representative of Maryland in the capitol. He has served as an honorable delegate in our state house for the past two years and will acquit himself well in the capitol. His support of the administration shows he holds proper views to grow our maritime trade. As a lawyer, he understands the need to avoid anarchy and mob rule. He knows the proper roles of state government and the federal government, having defended the role of state government as a law student. William Vans Murray is not fixated and obsessed with the size of governments, yet he will ensure that it fulfills its constitutional role. He will strike the right balance of powers between the state level and the national level, which is why I will be casting my vote for him."

“There are a number of races going on right now in New Hampshire, and because of that I am not going to make a pitch for any single candidate. Instead, I would like to make a broad pitch for the candidates of the National Democracy Party. Those of you who have read the paper – that’s all of you, I’m assuming – have probably read one particular attack leveled against the National Democracy Party again and again: That we are ‘traitors’ or ‘akin to Benedict Arnold’ and things of that nature. Now, while this has been a constant theme, no solid accusations to that effect have been made. The Federalists – and let’s be honest, that’s the primary source of these criticisms – have failed to identify one act that any intelligent, even-keeled individual would identify as treason. The reason the Federalist Party has accused us of treason is that they have begun to associate their own party with the state – if you are against the Federalist Party, in their mind, you are against the United States of America. If, as I learned during the infamous incident when the House Majority Leader tried, unsuccessfully, to remove me as Speaker Pro Tempore, you are not ‘Federalist enough’ then you are against the United States of America. So, when they accuse of treason what they are really accusing us of is not being Federalists. That’s the core of the problem with the Federalists, and why so many of us came together and decided to forge our own path forward. It became a very small, very personalized club – not based around Washington or Hamilton or anything understandable like that, but around men who wanted nothing more than to push down the states and build a strong federal government at the expense of the American citizenry. You have choices this election – you can go with the Federalists, who have called a group of respected New England leaders treasonous for leaving their clique; you can go with the Republicans, who have lost their great moderate Representative Terrus; or, you can try the National Democracy Party, a group with a platform specifically designed to push this country forward and, to the best of our ability, bridge the differences between Republican and Federalist.”

Citizens of Virginia, I come before you today to speak on behalf of various candidates for office. First, James Monroe is seeking a term as a Senator from our great Commonwealth. He is a honest man who will stand up to the big government Nationalist's that seek to create an ever encroaching Executive branch. If he is elected, he will support candidates for Executive branch appointments that are will to support the true meaning of the Constitution. I urge you all to support James in his quest of a responsible Federal government.
Second, Governor Beverly Randolph has always been a proponent of a strong Commonwealth. He has stood time and again against an overreaching Federal government, while defending the rights and liberties afforded to us by the Constitution that we all ratified. Governor Randolph is a man of his word and with your help will continue to be our Governor.
Finally, Mr. Patrick Henry, a gentleman. A man I have known for a long time. He will represent the interests of Virginia just like myself, and Mr. Surratt. The 4th district of Virginia is important, and Mr. Lee doesn't have your best interests at heart. He would rather sacrifice the people of Virginia in favor of big government Nationalists, limiting the voice of the people of Virginia.
I urge you all to come out and vote. It is our duty to choose honorable men who can represent the best of what Virginia is. It is our duty to stand up and defend the very document that is the single greatest creation of our country, the Constitution. May God bless you and your family. God bless Virginia, and may God bless our great nation.

Good afternoon, my fellow citizens, and thank you for taking the time to hear me speak. Our state faces an immense question this fall -- whether the Legislature should appoint Philip Schuyler as our Senator, or should name Aaron Burr instead. I come before you today to urge you to write your State Representative and State Senator, and urge them to support Schuyler.
Schuyler possesses the experience and know-how we need in a Senator. He's spent close to a decade in the state legislature, where he focused on matters of trade and commerce, issues of great importance in this city. He's spent close to a decade serving this nation as a Major General of the Continental Army, focusing on issues of defense that are certainly significant to this island. And he's spent the last two years in the Senate, where he championed the Bill of Rights, promoting protections for the liberties that are so beloved in this great city. Schuyler's record is quite simply that of a strong legislator and influential statesman, and that is exactly what we need in the Senate.
Burr is not a bad man by any means, but he is not the kind of man we want to be sending to Federal Hall. Burr's personal feuding generally receives the majority of his attentions; it's well-known that he solely joined the Republican Party to help obstruct the President, based upon a decade-old hatred he holds towards our dear George Washington. Why does Burr hate Washington? Because the President, while serving as commander of the Continental Army, forgot to commend Burr, who was already widely regarded as a hero. Washington selected Burr personally to serve on Washington's staff, a great compliment in itself -- but Burr refused that appointment. And instead, because of an error of omission, he's committed his political career to defeating Washington. That's why he wants to be in the Senate -- to obstruct the President. Not to serve New York. Not to serve this city.
The people of New York deserve a committed, knowledgeable, experienced legislator, Philip Schuyler is that man. I urge you all to join me in petitioning the State Legislature to send Philip Schuyler back to Federal Hall -- to return to the Senate a man that has served this state loyally for decades.
