In this Timeline, Gary Hart never engages in an extramarital affair with Donna Rice prior to the 1988 Presidential election. As a result, his frontrunner status for the Democratic nomination is never called into question, and he handily wins the nomination despite losing South Carolina to Jesse Jackson, and goes on to narrowly defeat Vice President George Bush in the 1988 general election. This timeline explores the repercussions of Hart's victory over Bush in that election.
