Today we have gotten news that our presidential election between Aaron Burr and Thomas Jefferson has resulted in a tie. I have been informed that the House of Representatives will vote for the final result.
Aaron Burr is one of our candidates running for president. He was a general in the Revolutionary War. After that he became a lawyer. He was a senator after he was appointed New York State Attorney General.
The other candidate is Thomas Jefferson. He wrote the Declaration of Independence and was a previous Vice President under John Adams. He is part of the Democratic- Republican party. He was also a State Secretary for George Washington.
Thomas Jefferson. He has an opinion, it may be different than mine but it is better than someone who has no opinion and just smiles and nods.
Mr. Hamilton, who will receive your vote? You can greatly influence the election.
Who are you voting for? I think I will vote for Jefferson now. Hamilton's opinion makes sense.
Me too. We have no clue what he will do since he doesn't have any opinions. r at least if he does we don't know what they are.
But Aaron Burr could be easily influenced. We could get him to do whatever we want him to do.
And Aaron went to Princeton. He is very well educated. He also served our country during the Revolutionary War. I think I am going to vote now.
The votes have been counted from the House of Representatives. The winner of the tie breaking race is Thomas Jefferson! He won ten states to Burr's three!
