This was the 4th presidential election in POWER history. It was between Chaka Khan (Vice chair of the NDA) and Heydrich (Republican chair). It was Heydrich's second presidential run, but he failed to win the election.
It was also the first election in the POWER II era.
Khan was some %'s behind, but she managed to come back. Many NDA members donated to the Khan campaign. Eventually Khan won the election by minimal margin. Many GOP members blame each other for the loss, by saying they lost interest.
It became the first presidential win for the New Deal Alliance and the 4th for left wing America.
