Running for President, Stories
by Jack Quinn
Published: May 2, 2016
A collection of three short stories based on the life of the fictional psychotic presidential candidate Jason Wilder. The stories portray him as a university student, as a candidate for governor of Arizona, and as the choice of the fabulously rich Hogson Brothers for the office of president of the United States. Together the stories form a satire on today's dysfunctional presidential politics.
