Dean Austen is a Democratic Senator from Ohio.


Austen was briefly chosen to be Frank Underwood's running mate for the election in 2016 by the Democratic Leadership, as he would help with a major swing state, help a major gun reform bill pass, as well as that he was an experienced politician with few enemies. However, Frank Underwood thought he was less than ideal as a candidate, for he was "another middle-aged white guy, underwhelming, [and] unimaginative". Under pressure from the NRA, Austen gave up his position as running mate.
