Tuesday morning was the beginning of the Nationalist Party convention. Topics ranging from GMOs to education reform were discussed. The most heated topics were GMOs and the Second Amendment. In the end, out of the five topics discussed, three remained the same, one was amended, and the other was completely removed.
After the platform was discussed, possible party candidates gave their speeches on the execution of the platform. The position of Lt. Governor was sought after by six candidates who all gave amazing speeches, but, in the end, Kevin Downs won. For the position of Secretary of State there were eight potential candidates, but only Jose Vazquez won. The race for Attorney General consisted of seven Candidates–all who showed great promise. Issac Buitron ultimately rose to the top to take the position. There were three potential Auditors with Nathan Weidner taking the position. Out of eight candidates the position of Treasurer went to Kaleb Kindler. While Public Service Commissioner may have been the last position, it was by no means unimportant with six candidates running, and Jarred Baumert, Issac Stallbaumer, Jacob French, Paxton Myers, and Garett Savick all winning.
