Here is a sneak-peek of the next release, which includes bug fixes to the last sneak-peek, as well as allowing candidates to start in primaries as the nominees of the party already.
You can download it here.
Note: Windows only at this point. Requires you already have the game installed.
The two-round option is available in the Editor, but is not enabled in the game. Also, if direct popular vote is selected for a campaign in the Editor, computer player strategy is not updated (computer players still think regions are winner-take-all).
