We are talking about a party so it is singular... A-D POE
Lets check the timing then:
Campaing > assumption > realization
So B-E are out because they missed the correct timing
so C is the one.

IMHO

Hello dear Gmat Experts, I'd like your opinion regarding this question, because the OA provided by the poster in my humble opinion, misses the timing. Thanks in advance.

The event "have the results in its favour" did not occur at a particular point in past. In fact the event never took place - it was a hypothetical event assumed by the campaign team. Hence subjunctive "have" is alright, but simple past "had" is wrong. (Note that "have" is NOT used as simple present, but as subjunctive - "would have" instead of "have" would also be alright, because then the tense "would have" would depict a point in future WITH RESPECT TO the past event "indulge".)

Correct. Assuming that I win, I celebrated. (subjunctive)
Correct. Assuming that I would win, I celebrated. (future with respect to a point in past)
Wrong. Assuming that I won, I celebrated. (This is wrong, if the results were not declared.)
