The Democratic Primary included several candidates, but eventually became a tight race between Governor Tripplyons18 of Dixie and Governor Barnes of Superior. After a tied primary in Greater Appalachia, Governor Barnes dropped out of the race and endorsed darthholo, momentarily placing him in the lead for delegate counts. However, Governor Tripplyons soon received the endorsements and delegates of other candidates, allowing him to secure the minimum number of delegates necessary to receive the nomination.
