  1. For the Senate, would it be possible to add Kevin de León as an independent in California and Chris McDaniel as an independent in the Mississippi special election (as they aren’t technically independents but are outsider candidates in a jungle primary)?

  2. Hopefully eventually will have primaries yes? And Individual candidates beliefs with favorbility

  3. @Jesse,

    Currently not including the Mississippi special election, because of jungle primary rules.

    Leon is from the same party as Feinstein, so either way, Dems win. Since the game is party-based, it’s not designed to simulate intra-party elections like this.

  4. @anthony
    That does make sense. Once we see what the second round matchup is (probably either McDaniel-Epsy or Hyde-Smith-Epsy) will it be added?

    Also, are there any plan to add Zak Ringelstein as the Democrat in Maine? He’s been endorsed by a few Bernie/Socialist groups and is running to the left of Angus King.

  5. @Jesse,

    Re Mississippi election, that’s an idea – we’ll see.

    Re Maine, if the Dems put up an official candidate, that person will be included.
