Campaign Platforms

Election campaigns are serious business. Speeches are given by candidates in hope the people listening will vote for them.

The speeches tell citizens (the people) why they are running and what they promise to do if they are elected.

The reasons why they are campaigning and promises made if elected is called their platform.

Foxy and Mortimer are both campaigning to be elected President of Lindenwald, this makes them presidential candidates.
