    What are the expansions

  2. anthony_270admin October 6, 2015 at 6:06 pm #

    I don’t have a list at hand. There are significant upgrades to the Editor – in particular, the ability to add or remove regions.

    @Douglas, she’s already in the game. 😉

    Campaign Editor > can now edit committee abbreviations (‘NRSC’, ‘DSCC’, and so on).

  6. Anthony October 7, 2015 at 2:32 pm #

    Kay Hagan already announced she isn’t running in North Carolina

  7. anthony_270admin October 7, 2015 at 2:44 pm #

    @Anthony,

    Ya, noted above – for NC the Dem has been set to a generic ‘Democrat’.

  8. Wilson October 7, 2015 at 4:03 pm #

    I think we need to add Daniel Blue in place of Hagan

  9. anthony_270admin October 7, 2015 at 5:46 pm #

    @Wilson,

    Do you have a link that supports the idea of Blue being the strongest candidate right now?

  10. Wilson October 7, 2015 at 7:28 pm #

    Scratch that. Heath Schuler is the best dem in the polls now

  11. anthony_270admin October 9, 2015 at 12:49 pm #

    @Wilson,

    Ya, I might add Shuler for Dems in NC.

  12. Falcon October 10, 2015 at 4:13 pm #

    Will you add the 2012 senate campaign?

  13. anthony_270admin October 10, 2015 at 5:04 pm #

    @Falcon,

    Yes, about 75% of way to completing it.

  14. anthony_270admin October 10, 2015 at 5:05 pm #

    We’ll be going back through the Senate campaigns first, then the Congressional campaigns after that.

  15. Wilson October 10, 2015 at 5:23 pm #

    Finally. I’ve always wanted to play 2012

  16. Wilson October 10, 2015 at 5:24 pm #

    All the way back to 1990, right?

  17. anthony_270admin October 10, 2015 at 5:38 pm #

    @Wilson,

    Yes, but that will take some time.

  18. Falcon October 11, 2015 at 3:52 pm #

    You should consider adding Rep. Jim Matheson against Mike Lee in Utah.

  19. anthony_270admin October 14, 2015 at 6:00 pm #

    added Senate 2012.
    fixed bug with rounding negative momentum numbers (for example, would display ‘-2.9′ instead of ‘-3′).
    Senate 2016 > NC > Democrat -> Heath Shuler, 53% Rep 47% Dem -> 55% Rep 45% Dem.

    I really don’t know about adding Shuler. The only Democrats that are currently actually in the race are Mayor Chris Rey and Fmr. State Rep. Deborah Ross. Shuler would have to leave his lobbying job first and he has yet to make that move. He also hasn’t really expressed any public interest in running. This summer he said “I am enjoying my work at Duke Energy, a great company, and that is my focus.”

    As far as fundraising goes, Chris Rey seems to most plausible Dem. nominee in 2016 against Burr. He isn’t polling the best, but he is the most realistic guess at this point.

    @Aaron,

    Thanks for this feedback re Shuler – noted.

  23. anthony_270admin October 16, 2015 at 1:36 pm #

    @Falcon,

    Thanks for this – noted.

  24. Falcon October 17, 2015 at 12:32 pm #

    Will you add the other election night vote counting system? The one that president infinity uses.

  25. anthony_270admin October 17, 2015 at 12:40 pm #

    @Falcon,

    It will use the latest election night system, similar to the one in the latest President Infinity.

  26. anthony_270admin October 17, 2015 at 4:22 pm #

    Senate 2016 > Dems > UT > Democratic -> Rep. Jim Matheson, Strength 2 -> 3.

  27. Wilson October 17, 2015 at 5:12 pm #

    Is this almost ready? And I think Schuler should stay because he is the best polling candidate

    Here’s an idea to consider, not sure how difficult it would be to implement.

    Allow users to create scenarios to play through. This would be like a traditional campaign you’d see in Starcraft, (or Diablo) mission after mission — but in this instance it’s campaigns.

    Example:

    You start as a player in the Democratic primary in 1992, say Bill Clinton. You win the primary, then the general. Perhaps there are 5 questions that you have to answer that after that and an element of randomness — this will set the stage/odds for the next election. You’re then thrust into the 1996 election. I suppose you could create a means to continue going after you (hopefully) win that election.
