In the Revolutionary War, Washington spotted his talents and made his his personal assistant. Hamilton was also a delegate for New York in the Constitutional Convention.

Jefferson’s policies favor the farmer and the average person while our slogan would attract business owners and wealthy individuals. It’d be wrong for him to use this slogan since he prefers an agrarian economy and he despises an industrial economy. Agrarian economies prefer agricultural methods to make money, while an industrial economy prefers businesses and industrialization. This is important because of the differing ideals. Overall, our slogan is against Jefferson’s beliefs and goals for the nation’s economy.
The biggest challenge as far as winning voters is winning the minds of 85% of the country which are farmers. They need to be convinced on why having an industrial economy is preferable to an agrarian economy. Additionally, Jefferson had many passionately loyal supporters, and his ideals were advantageous for farmers and planters. Overall, Hamilton’s biggest challenges are the strengths of the opposing side and the agriculture-based economy.
Our candidate’s biggest strength is that Hamilton supports an industrial economy and this will attract industrialists, businessmen and merchants to support his election to president. Additionally, he has many shared beliefs with industrialists, businessmen, and merchants. This is beneficial because more wealthy businessmen would want to vote for him. It would help improve the financial wealth of many people.
