So how exactly was the Federalist Party able to obtain such electoral success?  Attorney General Jordan Humphrey stated that he and his fellow officers “presented our arguments better in the debates.  We talked to the people rather than just the PACs.” “People like our policies better.  We are a unified front,” said Commissioner of Insurance Josh Schwartz.  “From what I hear, we made only a few minor changes to our budget proposal after it was presented to the legislature.” This is truly an interesting combination of leadership at Boys State.  Both houses of the legislature are predominantly Nationalist while all of the state officers are Federalist.  With the budget passing swiftly, staters have high hopes that their government leaders will cooperate and work for the common good of the entire state.]]>
