Richard Strickland is a retired soldier and businessman who is a current candidate for the special election for Texas' Senate seat. 

 

Early Life and Career

Strickland was born in Arlington, Texas into a family living beneath the poverty line. Through hard work and study, Strickland succeeded in obtaining a recommendation to attend the United States Military Academy at West Point. He graduated in 1987. After graduating, Stickland was assigned to the 101st Airborne where he earned a reputation as a brave and hardworking combat officer. His first experience with combat was Desert Storm where he served as a company commander. For bravery under fire, he earned both a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart for injuries.

 

2nd Iraq War and Karbala Gold

Strickland participated in the opening invasion of Iraq War and fought in both Battles of Fallujah in 2004, earning more distinctions for bravery and brilliance. 

Strickland also earned news coverage for his recovery of more than $40 million worth of stolen Kuwaiti bullion from the city of Karbala. The gold was returned to Kuwait, which asserted that some 5 million dollars were missing.

Strickland left the Army in 2005 with an honorable discharge.

 

Business career

After leaving the army, Strickland became part of the board of directors for Texas Instruments. 

 

Early political career

Formerly a staunch Republican, even unsuccessfully running as a candidate in the 6th congressional district, Strickland left the party citing irreconcilable differences and harshly criticizing President Donald Trump for his behavior. He was approached by the Texas Democratic Party about running in the 6th Congressional district in 2018 but ultimately refused the offer.

Character Name: David Grenfield

Home State: Texas (duh)

Home County: Travis County (yes, THAT Travis County)

Home Media Market: Travis

----------------------------------------------------

Previous Job: Social Media Loon commentator, editor of True American Heritage (fringe social media "news" organization)
Date of Birth: April 10, 1963
Race / Ethnicity: White
Religion: Atheist
Wealth: Middle Class
Gender: Male
Sexuality: Heterosexual (he makes this abundantly clear)
Are you married?: Divorced
How many children do you have?: 1; Alyssa Grenfield, 21

----------------------------------------------------

Attributes (200 points to distribute; max 100 for each)
Experience: 15
Name Recognition: 55
Wealth: 25
Charisma: 105

----------------------------------------------------

Affinity (100 points to distribute; max 100 for each)

Progressives: 25
Moderates: 15

----------------------------------------------------

David Ignatious Grenfield was born on April 10, 1963, to Donald 'Don' Grenfield and Sarah Grenfield. David grew up as a Democrat, even voting for Dukakis over the immensely popular Ronald Reagan in 1984. During this time, he served in the Army as an infantry rifleman. His time in the Army would go on to shape his cynical, power-centric worldview. While he neglected to vote in 1988, he did vote for Bill Clinton in 1992. However, in 1994, he was among millions of voters that defected to the Republican Party, delivering the House into GOP hands for the first time in nearly four decades. His views shifted into a more socially conservative outlook, while he remained economically moderate.

In 2000, he voted for George Bush and retired from the military. The Presidency of "Dubya" would come to radically change Grenfield's beliefs. He shifted left on some issues and hard right on others. He dropped his Christian faith in 2007, and he started supporting abortion ("keeps those minorities from getting uppity," he once said). He also became an immigration hardliner, calling for an immediate halt to all immigration. While his vote has invariably been Republican since 2012, he strikes a controversial figure for both parties. Mainstream conservatives consider him a far-right loonbag who makes them look bad, and progressives consider him misogynistic, racist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, and crude.

In summary on support:

(Conservatives like his support for police, distrust of affirmative action, anti-feminism, and other related things, but they are displeased greatly with his avowed support of Roe v. Wade, his blatant racism, and lowkey attacks on religion)

(Progressives like his support for Roe v. Wade and attacks on religion...that's about it)

(Moderates...yeah, they don't like him)

Notes

  • This round it matters which state you pick for fundraisers. The larger, wealthier states will yield higher results. Additionally, the maximum yield per state is reduced by 1% for each fundraiser held in that state during the current turn and previous turn among all players. 
  • Be sure to always name a state for your fundraisers. Otherwise it's counted in your home state.
  • You're limited to just 2 fundraisers per turn.
