Wallace Foster Bennett (13, November 1898 –) is a Republican Senator from the state of Utah. He can potentially run for president in 1964 on the Republican-Democrat coalition ticket. If elected President, Wallace will seek both to stabilize America while not "rocking the boat" and to bolster the unity of the OFN.

In-Game Description[edit | edit source]

Wallace Foster Bennett: America's best hope for a stable future. Born in Salt Lake City to a pair of devout Mormons, Bennett's upbringing was heavily influenced by the tenets of his parents' faith. After a brief stint in the Army as an instructor, he married the youngest daughter of the Mormon President and began a career in business, eventually owning a successful Ford dealership. Like many ambitious men who had accomplished all their goals, Bennett chose to go into politics, being elected Senator for Utah in 1951, albeit under a cloud of controversy after accusing his opponent of being a closet communist.

Quickly becoming a small-government and pro-business stalwart in the Senate, Bennett was soon entrenched as a major force in Washington pushing for conservative values. As the years wore on and America continued to stagnate, Bennett became convinced of the necessity to restore the nation's vitality, his conviction bolstered by Nixon's disgrace and the subsequent malaise that gripped America. Intent to prevent the NPP from steering America into uncertain waters, Bennett made the decision to throw his hat in the ring for the Presidency, hoping to keep the nation on track to a safe, stable and prosperous future.

Although he may not have the charisma or big ideals of some of his opponents, Bennett's gambit paid off, the American public choosing a candidate who promised to hold the ship steady and put to rest their uncertainty for the future. Whether or not he will succeed remains to be seen, but it seems that the American public, like their new President, believe the old proverb: that slow and steady wins the race.
