|United States presidential election, 2004|
|November 2, 2004|
|Nominee||Henry Raymond||Chuck Hagel|
|Running mate||Richard Agee||Colin Powell|
|Red states pledged toward Hagel/Powell. Blue states pledged toward Raymond/Agee.|
Raymond and incumbent Vice President Agee were renominated by their party with little difficulty.
Foreign policy was the dominant theme throughout the election campaign, particularly Raymond's conduct of the War in Naziristan and the establishment of democracy within the country. Domestic issues were debated as well, including the economy and jobs, health care, and moral values.
This was the first election where both major parties had nominated African-Americans to the positions of Vice President during the same cycle. This was also the first election where both political parties held their conventions in the same city, albeit different venues.
(Due to the 2002 Labor Day Attacks in San Francisco, both political parties held their nominating conventions in the city)
- DNC: San Francisco, CA.
- RNC: San Francisco, CA.
- Senator Hagel/General Powell: A STRONGER AMERICA.
- President Raymond/Vice President Agee: ONWARD. "Give 'em Hell, Henry."
