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

  2. Senate 2016 > Dems > NC > Sen. Kay Hagan -> Democrat, Strength 3 -> 2.
    Senate 2016 > Reps > NV > Brian Sandoval -> Rep. Joe Heck, Strength 4 -> 3.
    Senate 2016 > Dems > AZ > Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, Strength 2 -> 3.
    Senate 2016 > Dems > IN > Democrat -> Rep. Baron Hill.
    Senate 2016 > Dems > MO > Democrat -> Sec. Jason Kander.
    Senate 2016 > Dems > IA > Democrat -> Rep. Rob Hogg.
    Senate 2016 > Reps > LA > Sen. David Vitter -> Rep. John Fleming, Strength 3 -> 2.
    Senate 2016 > Reps > CO > Rep. Mike Coffman -> Rep. Scott Tipton.

  3. @Wilson,

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

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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Added 7 days per turn feature.

    Select Campaign Screen > no party or leader selected by default.

  8. @Falcon,

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

  9. 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.
