Designated Survivor: United States Senate

After the Capitol Bombing, 433 members of the House of Representatives were killed. Representatives Kimble Hookstraten and Peter Macleish, were the only members of Congress to survive the bombing. With all but 2 seats in the House of Representatives vacant, President Kirkman's administration organized Special Elections to fill the seats. Once the Special Elections were held, and the Governors appointed senators, the United States Congress was rebuilt. 162 Independent representatives were elected during the Special Elections, which means a little more than a third on the House of Representatives Senate are Independent. Your mission is simple: rebuild the United States.
