    My condolences to the Jarvis family. Although we did not always see eye to eye in politics, it was a privilege to work with the distinguished man in California and national politics.

    My New Character

    Senator Erica Hayden-Vallejo



    Erica Hayden was born on November 17, 1862 to Jose Ibarura (Joe Hayden) and his wife Elizabeth Wagenknecht in Boston. She grew up in a working-class family and witnessed her father organize his fellow workers and eventually come to prominence in politics, first as a Libertarian, then a Federalist, and finally a Democrat. As her fathers political fortunes rose, her life grew gradually more comfortable and she was able to receive an education at Vassar College. She eventually received a degree in law and became the first woman admitted to the New York State Bar in 1887 after passing the exam in 1885 and waging a two year legal battle against the New York State Bar for refusing her admission. Her success led to the amendment of the Civil Code so that no person could be refused admission based on race or gender. She practiced law from 1887 to 1894, mostly defending women and advocating for their rights. In 1886, she married Richard Vallejo after growing acquainted with him when her father served in the Bridgeworthy and Vallejo Administrations as Secretary of Industry. Erica campaigned heavily for her father in the North East every time he ran for President.

    Erica ran for Congress in the midterms of 1894, winning election as the Representative of New York City as a Federalist. She is very close with her sister-in-law, Alicia Vallejo, and has followed her trend of supporting the Federals on the state-level and the Democrats at the national-level. During the Hayden Administration, she worked as a Special Prosecutor responsible for the anti-trust case brought against United Fruit. Eventually, the court would rule in her favor and she became a national figure associated with progressive policies and trust-busting. After Harrison's election, she was appointed Attorney-General in recognition of her legal skill. This appointment made Erica the second woman appointed to head a Federal Department after her cousin, Alicia Vallejo, who was appointed Secretary of Industry during the Hayden Administration. In the election of 1904, Erica ran for and won a seat in the Senate from New York. She campaigned heavily on anti-war policies and promising to be a "thorn in the side of that warmonger, Carr!"

    tl;dr

    Name: Erica Hayden-Vallejo
    DOB: November 17, 1862
    Party: Federalist
    Ideology: Social Democrat
    Office: Senator
    Hometown: Boston, MA
    Residence: New York City, NY
    Issues: Interventionism, Full Citizenship, Protectionism, Local Power, Social Reform, Anti-Imperialism, Anti-Trust

    (I suppose I was not aware it was actually going to happen or not. My apologies then. Im not sure how I feel, since some people might be voting based on the assumption you would be president, not Harrison. Unless I am the only one who didnt know you were getting axed.)

    Well, it's now January 1st GMT. Hayden's lead right now is the type that is unlikely to be surmounted after two days of voting without passing the record for number of votes with nothing but Orleans votes.

    In light of this, I think I'm going to call it.

    The Polls are Closed. The vote is at 13 to 9 in favor of Hayden/Harrison.

    Joe Hayden will continue in his duties as President of the Republic.

    My friends in the California justice system (my grandfather had many allies from decades in office) have also informed me that they will also challenge any anti-trust legislation from the United States. What you do in New York is your business, Governor Harrison, and the business of the businessmen! But neither you nor Washington, D.C. can dictate Californian policy. These United States are founded on federalism, with the states having sovereignty over anything not explicitly handed to the federal government.

    There are two ideas of government. There are those who believe that, if you will only legislate to make the well-to-do prosperous, their prosperity will leak through on those below. The democratic idea, however, has been that if you legislate to make the masses prosperous, their prosperity will find its way up through every class which rests up on them. - William Jennings Bryan (1896)

    I offer my congratulations to the Democratic Party and swear that, as Secretary of the Treasury, I will do all in my power to undermine the oligarchs and uphold the interests of the common man. Our economy will blossom when the monopolist stranglehold is relaxed and the American worker is possessed of full liberty and income.
