|"Is this all real? Or has this been happening inside my head?"
The topic of this article is of a real-life subject that has been mentioned "in-universe" in a canon source. The Harry Potter Wiki is written from the perspective that all information presented in canon is true (e.g., Hogwarts really exists), and, as such, details contained in this article may differ from real world facts.
The United States Senate is the Upper Chamber of the bicameral legislature of the No-Maj federal government of the United States, and, together with the House of Representatives, makes up the United States Congress.
Behind the scenes
- In the real world, the 1926 United States Senate elections saw the incumbent Republican senator James W. Wadsworth, Jr lose to the Democrat Robert F. Wagner in New York state.
- The actual 1926 United States Senate elections took place on 2 November 1926. However, the events of the film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them take place in December of the same year, suggesting that the historical timeline of U. S. elections in the Harry Potter universe differs from that of reality. It is unlikely that Shaw would be campaigning for the 1928 election so ahead of time.
