I have been a citizen of Erepublik since the BETA period. I was a 2 term mayor during beta. I have a 1 term congressman, although I have ran twice in all. The first time I ran, it was in California. I lost with 51-52 to an individual that was a member of the largest party in the US. The same time, I moved to Georgia and ran. Four individuals ran and I won with 9 votes. I had more votes then the other three individuals combined.
