In December, 2078 the Seattle Metroplex was[[File:Brackhaven1.jpg|right]] gearing up for its first ever '''Special Election''' held outside of the normal election cycle. The reason for this is because the previous Governor, [[Kenneth Brackhaven]], responded to a new grand jury empanelment by liquidating his assets, packing up and leaving town just before the regularly scheduled November elections. Of course this threw the entire sprawl establishment into chaos. The gubernatorial election was postponed a few months to (Presumably) give the Republican Party time to nominate a new candidate and give the other candidates, and the megacorps, an opportunity to respond to the new political situation.
